So you were wondering how long we would have to go without a fresh book format adaptation of A Charlie Brown Christmas? Well, you can return to spending the time you had focused on that question to instead doing your job or taking care of your family, because the answer is now clear. Hallmark stores now have a new adaptation… and I gotta give them points for finding a new way to do it yet again. This book has six pages of text facing six jigsaw puzzles. A mere $9.95 for this.
These 16-piece puzzles appear to all be cut from the same die. That means that you could probably swap pieces between puzzles, creating dangerous Frankenstein images!
I like it. It makes me happy.
Part of me likes to think that someone out there is going through my guide to book adaptations of A Charlie Brown Christmas whenever they want to know what’s been done before so they make sure they’re not repeating something. But probably not.
(Hallmark also has another new Christmas-themed Peanuts book that I hope to get to writing up in the next couple days.)
