Be My Valentine, Sweet Babboo
Taking my computer into the shop (I will have to struggle without it for DAYS! Withdrawal, withdrawal!), I stopped in at the Hallmark shop to waste a few minutes until my Genius Bar appointment. Hallmark has been on my mind lately as I wonder whether it might make sense for them to buy Icoonix’s stake in Peanuts Worldwide. Checking in pays off (if you consider spending $20 “paying off”), as they have this book. I almost overlooked it, as the book’s Itty Bittyness overwhelms its Peanutsyness. This goes for the book’s tale as well, as it’s a nobosy’s-really-aggrieved look at the Sally/Linus/Othmar love triangle. Now, that’s a romantic muddle that could have legs…. But there are no legs allowed in IttyBittyland!
