Self-help with a difference: a delightful collection of wit and wisdom on life’s little comforts, from the cast of Charles Schulz’s classic comic strips
The kids (and canines) of Peanuts know a thing or two about how tough life can be. But with a philosophical approach to the trials and tribulations of growing up - from not being able to talk to the girl you like, to having an idiot brother who won’t take your flawless advice - they’re never short of the small comforts, and the great wisdom, that can help us get by.
