Not that Charlie Brown times 2

There’s a section of the reference library dedicated to books that have the name Charlie Brown in the title but are not referring to that Charlie Brown. It’s a very small section, with only two or three books in it. And lately, there’s been a category of AAUGH Blog …

Halloween beats Christmas

It doesn’t seem likely, but this year there are actually more new books of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown than of the perennial book-generator, A Charlie Brown Christmas!
