Lots of little Peanuts books in one big book

Coming in December is Peanuts 5-Minute Stories, which is a collection of earlier Peanuts storybooks – and by “earlier”, I mean “earlier than December”, not earlier that now; It’s Hockey Time, Franklin! has not yet been released. But it’s got a dozen books worth of tales between its hard covers, although …

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!

One of the thing that can slow down Peanuts research is the ability of Google to find Snoopy everywhere… even if it’s an illusion. For example, when searching for uses of the word “Snoopy” in books from the 19th century, Google served me up the following examples. Two guys named …

Jacky Ha-Ha

For those of us who consume audiobooks, the Peanuts books market is rather weak. After all, most of them are collections of comics or at least heavily-illustrated kids books where, if the text were recorded, it would take up just a few minutes of listening during one’s daily exercise regimen. …

The wrapping of the wrapping paper book

Ah, finally we have something that looks like an actual cover for the upcoming A Charlie Brown Christmas Wrapping Paper Activity Book. The few uncolored figures to the left look to me like ghosts in the composition. Maybe they’re the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future?
