Product description

As the 1970s wind down, the last two recurring Peanuts characters have fallen into place: Snoopy s brother Spike and the youngest Van Pelt sibling, Rerun. But that doesn t mean Schulz s creativity has diminished; in fact, this volume features an amazing profusion of hilariously distinctive new one- (or two-) shot characters! For instance, in an epic five-week sequence, when Charlie Brown, found guilty by the EPA of biting the Kite-Eating tree, he goes on the lam and ends up coaching the Goose Eggs, a group of diminutive baseball players, Austin, Ruby, Leland, and did you know there was a second black Peanuts character, aside from Franklin? Milo. Also: a tennis-playing Snoopy ends up reluctantly teamed with the extreme Type A athlete Molly Volley... who then reappears later in the book, now facing off against her nemesis, Crybaby Boobie. (Honest!) Add in Sally s new camp friend Eudora, the thuggish caddymaster who shoots down Peppermint Patty and Marcie s new vocation, an entire hockey team, and a surprise repeat appearance by Linus s sweetheart Truffles (creating a love triangle with Sally), all in addition to the usual cast of beloved characters (including the talking schoolhouse and the doghouse-jigsawing cat, who gets hold of Linus s blanket in this one), and you ve got a veritable crowd of characters. It s another two years of the greatest comic strip of all time, full of laughs and surprises."
