I think the combination of the two (I've seen the new edition of Anton
but not of Hughes-Hallet) will probably be excellent for you. Anton's
book remains relatively unchanged from the 5th ed, with the
incorporation of calculator exercises being the main difference I have
noticed (but I haven't taught a class from it yet ...)

It's like my choice for teaching geometry -- if I can have just one
book, I'd take Jacobs, but if I could have two, I'd take Discovering
Geometry (Serra) and an old Moise/Downs ... maybe my ideal class would
use Jacobs as the main book, with supplements from both the others.

Similarly in calculus, I'd want an engaging-to-read book as the main
text (maybe Foerster, even; I like his style) and then supplement with
things that have extremely different points of view ...
