Boogie Down, Snoopy!

The choice to focus on disco Snoopy for the cover, title, and back cover strip of Snoopy: Boogie Down!, the 11th in the Andrew McMeel Peanuts For Kids series of strip reprints, is an interesting one. On one hand, it’s a non-generic image, and that’s good. On the other hand, …

New Hallmark boardish books

I received the Hallmark Christmas catalog mailer the other day, and while there were new books in there, and Peanuts items, there were no new Peanuts books. But I try to be not so concerned, because I recall that being the case in the past, and they still ended up …

Finally, a book about The Peanuts Gang!

Yes, I sacrifice much for you, my dear AAUGH Blog readers! I actually ordered myself a copy of the book on this bold new Peanuts Gang, finally finding a replacement for those characters from the last century! No more Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty. Now, The Peanuts Gang (and it’s italicized, always italicized) is …
