Letters to Santa from the Peanuts Gang

Hallmark’s got a new book for this Christmas season. No, not a new book adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas (not yet, anyway). This one is Letters to Santa, a 24-page hardcover storybook written by Bill Gray, illustrated by Rich LaPierre. It tells the tale of the gang writing letters to Santa (surprise, surprise.) They are also offering up a related stuffed Snoopy, battery powered, doing the things that you’ll see in this video if you’re reading this on the blog.

I’m going to hold off jussssst a little on ordering my copy of the book; Hallmark often has a Peanuts item that turns out to be Free With Purchase right when they start their holiday sales push, and I suspect it may be this.

Not that Snoopy, but that-Snoopy adjacent
