Hallmark has a couple of new books available at your local Hallmark store – or, for those of us who are trying to stay at home or whose nearby Hallmark store has closed down (both me), via mail order. Friend of the blog Kathleen wanted to make sure that I saw The Adventures of the Candy Crusader. A superheroing of Snoopy? Of course I’m there.

Also coming in that shipment is Better Together: Peanuts Reflections on Friendship From Across the Decades, a gift book of the picture-facing-an-adage style (as in Happiness is a Warm Puppy) with a notably retro cover.
