Hallmark has some new Peanuts books, and they are nice looking items.
Snoopy Says “Good Night” is a cloth book of Snoopy saying goodnight to various folks. A bit of bedtime reading that’s safe for your baby to grab, I suppose.
The Legend of Blackbeagle the Pirate is another tale of Snoopy’s adventures as his halloween character, a follow-up to last year’s tale of Snoopy as a superhero. I was less than fond of that one, despite the very fine art of Rich LaPierre (which also will grace this new volume.) And again, it’s listed as a pop-up book, which likely means just this pop-up at the end:
How dare the kids taunt Snoopy like that, dressing like cats? Sally is dressed like a black cat, and Lucy, a hep cat!
But perhaps the best news is that Hallmark as reissued their It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown lighted pop-up edition, which I rather liked five years ago when it first came out, bearing a different cover.
