MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

Happiness is a warm puppy according to Snoopy and this book will warm your heart just as well.  I grew up reading Peanuts everyday and in fact I still do.  This book is a composite of art work, graphics and amazing details about Peanuts that should bring joy to Peanuts lovers everywhere.  You don't really even have to like Peanuts to enjoy the detail that this book contains since it is a marvel of modern art work.  There are reproductions of notes from Charles Schultz, copies of original drawings in clever envelopes and a treasure trove of history.  I really loved this amazing book and it will make a perfect gift for any one!
