I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
I grew up with the Peanuts. As kids we often fought over the newspaper to see what Charlie Brown, Linus and Snoopy not to mention the whole gang was up to. Charles Schultz was a true creative genius. His concept continued to grow until he passed away in 2000.
The best part about the Peanuts was that they never changed, the remarkable character of each one, remained the same throughout time, allowing readers to fall in love, relate to and enjoy from childhood to adulthood. There were many holiday television shows, including Charlie Brown’s Pumpkin Patch, and Charlie Brown’s Christmas. Stuffed animals became a huge collectible and magazines and newspapers world-wide published Schultz’s strips.
This book is another collection by Schultz, filled to the brim with familiar characters like Woodstock, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Linus, that nasty neighbor’s cat, and many, many more. Each one with their own separate splice of comedic fun, brilliant colours and extraordinary artwork are sure to please anyone.
I loved this book, and gave it:
