Snoopy Treasures reviews

This is my post for linking and quoting reviews of my book The Snoopy Treasures… and I intend to quote them all (well, not from mass-review sites, like Goodreads or Amazon), both the good and the bad. Only problem is, as of my initial post on Nov 17, I really don’t have any bad ones to quote yet! Anyway, I’ll just keep updating this page, rather than harassing my regular readers with constant update posts as more reviews come in.
