I recently received my copies of Be Thankful and Be Friends, the latest books in the Peanuts Wisdom to Carry You Through series… and really, my review for the earlier volumes still applies. If you liked those, here’s more of that.
I missed announcing the shipment of The Peanuts Gang Love To Doodle (an activity book) and Peanuts Labels & Stickers, a book of, well, Peanuts labels and stickers. Sorry, I didn’t notice when they’d come out, because I didn’t order them. (I have to have some limits on what I buy. I am not made of money. Not sure what I’m made of, really. Probably a poly/cotton blend.)
Oh, you want me to say something new here? Okay: here’s the cover to the upcoming kids strip collection (with a free poster!) Charlie Brown and Friends. Which leads to three questions:
- Woodstock is Charlie Brown’s friend?
- If you were to cast the members of the Peanuts gang as the cast of the TV sitcom Friends, who is Rachel? I mean, the rest are pretty obvious: Charlie Brown is Ross, Lucy is Monica (okay, there’s a case for either making Linus Ross or Sally Monica to keep the brother/sister thing going, but personalitywise, this seems a better fit), Sally is Phoebe (well, maybe Frieda), Linus is Chandler, and Snoopy is Joey. But for Rachel? I got nothing.
