This book just amazes me. I LOVE it!! In it you will see Charlie Brown's world from the beginning, since the debut comic strip in October 1950--when he wasn't yet the lovable loser that he became. This book has all the Peanuts favorites including Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and all the gang. I love that it includes frameable prints. This Book would make a Great gift!!!
