Celebrating "Peanuts"

  • Feb 8, 2011
Rating:
+3
In 1994, "Peanuts" had appeared in newspapers for 45 consecutive years. Though not a traditional anniversary book, AROUND THE WORLD IN 45 YEARS is a book that was released to celebrate "Peanuts" 45th Anniversary. The book has a forward written by Lynn Johnston, creator of "For Better Or Worse". There's also a very short essay at the beginning of the book by Connie Boucher, the woman in charge of much of the "Peanuts" licensing. Approximately, the next 25 pages contain anecdotes written by Schulz accompanied by "Peanuts" strips that relate to the writings. This section is followed by a few, large, colored photos of Schulz. The rest of the book contains a year's worth of "Peanuts" strips. I'm not sure what year the strips are from, but they don't seem to be in correct order, for instance there's a baseball strip towards the end of the collection. AROUND THE WORLD IN 45 YEARS isn't a great "Peanuts" collection, but it is a book that "Peanuts" fans will probably enjoy, particularly for the essays.
