a 2-D cover for a 3-D Christmas

Animated Peanuts

We have a cover for this year’s new book edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas, which is a pop-up book.Now, when I heard that there was going to be a pop-up book, I thought it might be a book market edition of the pop-up that Hallmark stores had last year, but that would make an unimpressive full-priced volume; it had just a single up-popping spread.  But no, this one has text by Maggie Tesla, art by Vicki Scott. So it may be a new adaptation, or it may be a popupification of the 2017 adaptation that the two of them did.

If you want to find out which it is, preorder it!
