The Emmy and Peabody award-winning animated holiday classic, which first aired in 1965, is adapted for the first time since the 1960s in this storybook. Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang look for the true meaning of Christmas amid all the commercialism of the season.
Surrounded by other kids with extremely commercial ideas about Christmas, Charlie Brown struggles to understand the true spirit of the holiday.
Charlie Brown laments that he has nothing for which to be thankful this Thanksgiving. That's before Peppermint Patty invites herself and a cadre of friends to Charlie's house for Thanksgiving dinner. The only problem is, Charlie can't cook anything except cereal and toast, which he ultimately serves his guests. Their initial dismay and disappointment soon turns to understanding and forgiveness, and all of them finally enjoy Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma's. Based on the classic television special of the same name, this is a great book for kids and for blind adults who loved the TV show but wondered what all the undescribed noise was about.

As the first decade of Peanuts closes, it seems only fittingto bid farewell to that halcyon decade with a cover starring Patty, oneof the original three Peanuts. Major new additions to classic Peanuts lore come fast and furious here. Snoopy begins to take up residenceatop his doghouse, and his repertoire of impressions increasesexponentially. Lucy sets up her booth and offers her first five-centpsychiatric counsel. (Her advice to a forlorn Charlie Brown: "Get overit. ") For the very first time, Linus spends all night in the pumpkinpatch on his lonely vigil for the Great Pumpkin (although he lamentsthat he was a victim of "false doctrine," he's back 12 months later). Linus also gets into repeated, and visually explosive, scuffles with ablanket-stealing Snoopy, suffers the first depredations of hisblanket-hating grandmother, and falls in love with his new teacher MissOthmar. Even more importantly, several years after the last addition tothe cast ("Pig-Pen"), Charlie Brown's sister Sally makes her appearanceâ " first as an (off-panel) brand new baby for Charlie to gush over, thenas a toddler and eventually a real, talking, thinking cast member. (Bythe end of this volume, she'll already start developing her crush onLinus. ) All this, and one of the most famous Peanuts stripsever: "Happiness is a warm puppy. " Almost one hundred of the 731 stripscollected in this volume (including many Sundays) have never beencollected in any book since their original release, with one hundredmore having been collected only once in relatively obscure and nowimpossible-to-find books; in other words, close to one quarter of thestrips have never been seen by anyone but the most avid Peanuts completists. The introduction is by comedienne extraordinaire Whoopi Goldberg, who reveals which Peanuts character she has tattooed on her body (and where) â " as well as tellingof her meeting with "Sparky" Schulz, and her fascinating theory onSnoopy's brother Spike. As always, this volume is gorgeously designedby award-winning cartoonist Seth. The Complete Peanuts continues to receive national and international media attention for itssophisticated treatment of one of the 20th Century's defining Americanclassics.
