Part of Canongate’s highly collectible and highly praised series, with an introduction by Leonard Maltin
This volume of The Complete Peanuts is particularly romance-heavy as the Charlie Brown / Peppermint Patty / Marcie triangle heats up; love blossoms between two of the ‘Beagle Scout’ birds; and Linus is still not Sally’s ‘Sweet Babboo’! Meanwhile, Charlie Brown becomes, in his worst baseball-related humiliation to date, a Pelican - and Snoopy’s brother Spike is still stuck in Needles, surrounded by coyotes, with a cactus as his only friend.
“Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life”

“It’s impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does… at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz”
“The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated”
“Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz’s work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book”
“These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment”
