It’s Happiness time again

Happiness is a Warm Puppy, the classic Peanuts gift book, seems to resurface fairly regularly.  Coming around Christmastime – in fact, listed as shipping the day before Christmas, and thus to late to actually get it by Christmas – is an edition from yet another publisher. This time, it’s coming out as part of the Penguin Workshop brand… this is an imprint intended specifically for those 12 and under. Certainly, the book was not specifically targeted at that age range; like Peanuts itself, it was something that would be readable by them but more fully grasped by more mature folk. But if the kids want to read it, there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. It will be available as both a physical book and an e-book.

The same publisher is simultaneously rereleasing another volume in that gift book series, Love is Walking Hand in Hand.
