Here comes Here Comes the Easter Beagle!!

Landing in January is Here Comes the Easter Beagle!, which is, of course, celebrating the adventures of one of those giant stone beagle heads that they found on Easter Island. No, wait, that’s wrong. But that’d be cool too, right? Well, in order to make this short 8″x8″ book at …

Lots of little Peanuts books in one big book

Coming in December is Peanuts 5-Minute Stories, which is a collection of earlier Peanuts storybooks – and by “earlier”, I mean “earlier than December”, not earlier that now; It’s Hockey Time, Franklin! has not yet been released. But it’s got a dozen books worth of tales between its hard covers, although …

Classic finds

The envelope please!

Why yes, I did just buy another copy of Linus on Life just so I could have the envelope it originally came with. No, you have too many Peanuts books!


Good deal alert!

Only What’s Necessary: Charles M. Schulz and the Art of Peanuts, Chip Kidd’s lovely, frustratingly page number-less book of Peanutsy stuff, is more than half off at Amazon at the moment. I have no idea how long this will last, so order now!


Franklin on Ice!

Amazon may not be showing it yet on their listing for It’s Hockey Time, Franklin!, but we’ve got a (preliminary) cover here for you! Enjoy! Note that everyone has a closed-mouth smile. That’s so we can’t see if they’ve got any teeth knocked out yet, the sign of a true …



We’ve got some covers for upcoming board books. September brings us Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!, with plenty of time to integrate it into your holiday. Then there’s December’s Who’s Your Valentine, Charlie Brown? – it’s heart-shaped, it’s a book… that means that it’s a heart with a spine!


A Charlie Brown Christmas Wooden Collectible Set

Popping onto the September schedule is something called A Charlie Brown Christmas Wooden Collectible Set. What is it? Well, it’s published by Running Press, and it’s listed as a 32 page paperback, but the name suggests it has “stuff”. So I’m assuming it’s one of their “kits”, the little boxes with …


The Peanuts Character Whatever

We have a cover for the book that’s been announced as The Complete Peanuts Character Encyclopedia… only now it seems to have the title of The Complete Peanuts Family Album. It’s still by Andrew Farago. It is full of detail, and make a great trivia “how many can you name” challenge. …


It’s what Google and Stephen Colbert have in common

One of the thing that can slow down Peanuts research is the ability of Google to find Snoopy everywhere… even if it’s an illusion. For example, when searching for uses of the word “Snoopy” in books from the 19th century, Google served me up the following examples. Two guys named …
