The cover for this year’s other Charlie Brown Christmas edition

Here’s the preliminary cover for the upcoming new book edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Almost certainly, this will use the same adaptation as last year’s Hallmark edition; it even has the same sound buttons. However, not only is the cover different from the Hallmark edition, it looks like it’s …

Snoopy Loves to Doodle

I got my copy of Snoopy Loves to Doodle, which is good because my Hallmark doesn’t have that Great Pumpkin book in yet, and my Wendy’s doesn’t have the new Kids Meal book in yet, so I’ve got that itchy Peanuts-books-are-on-their-way feeling, and I needed something to scratch it. But …

Time to push the Great Pumpkin’s buttons

Hallmark has a new book edition of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, one with the little buttons that you push to make sounds that are part of the story. It’s a close cousin to a similar edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas which they published last year. And they’re …

a new edition of Young Pillars

I note that a new edition of Young Pillars, the first collection of Schulz’s single panel cartoons for Youth magazine, has popped up on Amazon. Judging by the fact that it had no pre-order listing, that it has no cover image, that it has an odd price ($36.49), and that …

The next Wendy’s Kids Meal book

Yes, yes, I do manage to crank three posts out of each of these Wendy’s Kids Meal books. We call that efficient use of information. I also manage to make three meals out of each rotisserie chicken. Anyway, August 1st is the official release date for The World Famous Beagle …

Tip-Top from the Comic-Con

My one-day trip down to the San Diego Comic-Con was loud and crowded and unproductive and yet still worthwhile. I did stop by the Peanuts booth and got the free button of the day – they were all promoting Peanuts on social media sites, and weren’t as cool as the …

How the gang grows up

There are lots of comedic and intellectual attempts to show how the Peanuts characters age – and generally, they are faux comedic or faux intellectual. (I’d place “Riot On Cell Block P”, which can be read for free here or downloaded to your Kindle for 99 cents, into that latter …
