Publisher Description

This volume of The Complete Peanuts features the long, surprisingly dramatic sequence in which a grievously ill Charlie Brown checks himself into a hospital while his friends worry. But the rest of the stories in this, the final volume from the 1970s, are far less sombre, as Snoopy launches his 'bird scout' treks, Peppermint Patty gets leaked on at school and sues - plus one of the great forgotten romances in Peanuts history!

Review

  • Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life -- BILL CLINTON It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does ... at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz Seattle Times The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated -- UMBERTO ECO Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz's work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book Huffington Post These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment Sunday Times All sorts of important writers have marvelled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism ... by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate ... in lavishly appointed hardback ... Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them Spectator As essential as pop texts get The Onion * Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher ... But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life -- John Waters

Unfortunately the Canongate issues of these books are poorly printed..... Don't waste your time on Canongate, its worth paying a little more for the Fantagraphics editions of these books
