Hot Wheels hot deals

I’m used to Hot Wheels charging several bucks apiece for licensed character cars, so when I saw this series of six Peanuts cars for $1 at my local Ralphs grocery store (with membership card, natch), I scarfed them up without pausing to think “do I really need Hot Wheels cars?” …

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!

As promised, I went to the local Hallmark shop, and found… no knowledge of the Peanuts sale. No signage. Talked to someone who appeared to be the manager, and she was unaware of such a sale. So I mentioned that it was on Hallmark’s website, and she went into her …

This season’s big Peanuts books

With all of the books that have been released lately, I thought I’d recap the major big-gifty ones for those considering their Christmas shopping (or their git lists). The Snoopy Treasures: A Celebration of the World Famous Beagle is the book that I’d better list first, as an author who …
