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 fitting to bid farewell to that halcyon decade with a cover starring Patty, one of the original three Peanuts. Major new additions to classic Peanuts lore come fast and furious here. Snoopy begins to take up residence atop his doghouse, and his repertoire of impressions increases exponentially. Lucy sets up her booth and offers her first five-cent psychiatric counsel. (Her advice to a forlorn Charlie Brown: "Get over it. ") For the very first time, Linus spends all night in the pumpkin patch on his lonely vigil for the Great Pumpkin (although he laments that he was a victim of "false doctrine," he's back 12 months later). Linus also gets into repeated, and visually explosive, scuffles with a blanket-stealing Snoopy, suffers the first depredations of his blanket-hating grandmother, and falls in love with his new teacher Miss Othmar. Even more importantly, several years after the last addition to the cast ("Pig-Pen"), Charlie Brown's sister Sally makes her appearance â " first as an (off-panel) brand new baby for Charlie to gush over, then as a toddler and eventually a real, talking, thinking cast member. (By the end of this volume, she'll already start developing her crush on Linus. ) All this, and one of the most famous Peanuts strip sever: "Happiness is a warm puppy. " Almost one hundred of the 731 strips collected in this volume (including many Sundays) have never been collected in any book since their original release, with one hundred more having been collected only once in relatively obscure and now impossible-to-find books; in other words, close to one quarter of the strips 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 telling of her meeting with "Sparky" Schulz, and her fascinating theory on Snoopy's brother Spike. As always, this volume is gorgeously designed by award-winning cartoonist Seth. The Complete Peanuts continues to receive national and international media attention for its sophisticated treatment of one of the 20th Century's defining American classics.
