After-Rats

So Yaolee Chen has followed up her Chinese book of Peanuts related text, Rats! (reviewed here) with Stories of Charlie, which appears to be another collection of Peanuts stories in prose, in Chinese. This is being published in the US by a Taiwanese woman living in the US; I’m dubious that it is properly …

Because Itty rhymes with Bitty, you see.

So I got my itty bittys Peanuts Easter Beagle Stuffed Animal and Storybook Set from Hallmark. And yes, as you see here, the itty bittys tag does keep Snoopy’s arm (well, leg… well, no, itty bittys don’t have legs) propped up. The storybook is an adaptation of the TV special… but it’s …

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 …

I sadly actually want to get all of the biographies of Charles Schulz aimed at children. These things, almost always issued as part of a large set of biographies aimed to fill library space and be the easiest thing to write a book review about, tend to be expensive, and …

Some notes on Complete Peanuts 26

Now that you all have your copies of The Complete Peanuts volume 26: Comics and Stories (you do, don’t you? If not, click on that link and order one!), I thought I’d make a few notes on it. As I’ve mentioned here before, Derrick Bang, Timothy Chow, and I rounded …

a Peanuts book in its potential state

The latest addition to the AAUGH.com Reference Library is not a book… yet. Tips from the Gang is the latest in a line of fabric sheets that are a bit of sewing and cutting (as well as a bit of batting) away from the being a cloth book…. or, if you’re …

Hooray for Liberty, Charlie Brown!

I’ve finally gotten around to filling in the whole that I left in my Peanuts Great American Adventure collection, by getting the storybook Hooray for Liberty, Charlie Brown! This recent volume, written by former-voice-of-Lucy Tracy Stratford, tells about Lucy talking the gang into building a treehouse, and then declaring herself “queen” …

A new editionish of A Charlie Brown Christmas!

I had a feeling that I was not done with new book editions of A Charlie Brown Christmas this year… even though everything solicited to the book market had already come out, and Hallmark had already unveiled multiple editions. But then I was walking through Target, and I saw a new …
