The Complete Peanuts 1959-1960 by Charles M. Schulz (Hardback ISBN 9781847671493) book cover

Available as Hardback

With an introduction by Russell T. Davies

As Peanuts concludes its first decade, a new character makes her appearance: Charlie Brown’s little sister Sally. This volume covers her earliest days, from her proud brother’s announcement of her birth to her first words (and crush on Linus)!

Also: the initial ‘Great Pumpkin’ sequence; Lucy’s first appearance as a nickel psychiatrist; Linus’s short-lived and one-sided romance with his beloved teacher Miss Othmar; and Snoopy’s battle with the doghouse-destroying freeway bypass. All this, plus two of the most famous Peanuts strips of all time: the ‘clouds’ Sunday that Schulz cites as his personal favourite and ‘Happiness is a warm puppy’.

“One of the finest cultural artifacts made in the 20th century.”
Russell T. Davies
