Product description

The third volume in Canongate's acclaimed series arrives with a specially commissioned introduction from "The Simpsons'" Matt Groening. This beautiful new edition takes us into the mid-1950s as Linus learns to talk, Snoopy begins to explore his eccentricities, Lucy's unrequited crush on Schroeder takes final shape, and Charlie Brown becomes ...well, even more Charlie Brown-ish.

Review quote

* powerful a comic art-piece as anything out today...will delight Peanuts aficionados. Observer 20071027 * ...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. The List * Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. Daily Telegraph * Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schultz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes... Herald 20071027 * The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. The Skinny * these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. Sunday Times 20071202
