Last chance to pre-order Be More Snoopy!

Upcoming releases

You’re running out of time to preorder my upcoming Peanuts book, Be More Snoopy. After all, once Tuesday rolls around, the book will have been released, and then you’ll only be able to order it, not preorder. Sure, that’d still be cool, but not as cool. This is a book with page after page of Peanuts-inspired life suggestions paired with genuine Schulz art, just some little notes to help you get through your days.

Or if you don’t order online, this book will be available at your better bookstores. Maybe even some of your lesser bookstores that are nonetheless striving to make themselves better by carrying fine tomes like this one! (Note: I may be biased.)

(By the way, if you’re wondering where that Snoopy-and-pancakes image on that last spread comes from, that is indeed an outside-the-strip piece. This was drawn for The Cartoonist Cookbook, a 1966 collection of recipes from cartoonists. Schulz’s contribution was to suggest putting syrup in your pancake batter.)
