I agree with the previous comment: Calvin is 6 the whole time. This is very clear and I'm not sure how the author came to believe otherwise. Though the passage of time is evident throughout the 10 year-run of the comic (seasonal changes, different Christmas scenes, multiple Halloween costumes, etc.), the comic hinges on the fact that Calvin is always 6. He is always in first grade, with the same teacher (Mrs. Wormwood) and classmates (Susie, Moe, and more). The only birthday ever mentioned to my knowledge is Susie Derkins', though the age she is turning remains unspecified. Watterson also only ever refers to Calvin as a 6-year old in the 10th anniversary book, for example. Calvin. Does. Not. Age.

A couple other quibbles: sloppy answers and spelling answers. "Calvin likes school as much as he likes the color pink"? When does Calvin say anything about the color pink? Why compare school to something that Calvin has no expressed opinion on? Why not choose one of the many things Calvin clearly also hates (camping trips, his babysitter, shoveling snow, his mom's cooking, and so much more)? Also, Calvin's dad loves to take advantage of Calvin's gullibility, but occasionally does teach him interesting/useful things (two points on the record, baseball, fishing). Finally, Susie and Rosalyn's names were misspelled a few times.

This is dumb. Calvin is six throughout the entire series
