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 * The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. * The Skinny * ...in these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. * Sunday Times *show more
