Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip charmed and delighted millions of fans—both kids and adults—for more than 40 years. In November 2015, a new 3D Peanuts movie was released—the first in 35 years. Just in time for the new movie, this ebook bundle introduces the memorable Peanuts gang—Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Sally, Marcie, Schroder, Woodstock, and Charlie Brown—to a whole new generation of readers. You Have a Brother Named Spike: Snoopy’s brother Spike is coming for a visit—and the Peanuts gang is going crazy with curiosity. But Spike’s no pampered house pet—he’s a skinny dog who’s been living in the desert with a gang of coyotes! Soon Spike has taken over Linus’ bed—and Lucy is on a mission to fatten him up, with hilarious results. Everyone Gets Gold Stars But Me: Miss Tenure gives out gold stars to everybody. She gives them out for good spelling, attendance, and even for drinking milk. But Peppermint Patty has never gotten a gold star—and she wants one. When the teacher’s box of treasured gold stars goes missing, Peppermint Patty is the main suspect. She enlists the help of Snoopy, the “world-famous attorney,” and goes undercover. She’s determined to find the real culprit and earn a gold star fair and square. A Flying Ace Needs Lots of Root Beer: Snoopy, The World War I Flying Ace, finds refuge from the war in a little French café (a.k.a. Marcie’s house). A bemused Marcie lets Snoopy take over her house—until he drinks all her root beer and makes a mess with the empty mugs. Can Marcie get Snoopy to go back to Charlie Brown and his doghouse, and can the World War I Flying Ace evade the Red Baron? I’ve Been Traded for a Pizza: Lucy and Marcie both play right field on competing baseball teams—and they’re both terrible at it. So their team captains, Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty, negotiate a trade. Charlie Brown agrees to trade Lucy for Marcie, as long as Peppermint Patty will throw in a pizza. The trade doesn’t exactly go as expected—but that doesn’t stop Charlie Brown from eating the pizza! My Best Friend, My Blanket: Against all odds, Linus has finally managed to put down his beloved security blanket for good. Feeling empowered by his success, he opens a clinic to help other children give up their own blankets. He’s in for a surprise, though—as his first client, Randolph, is not exactly what he seems.

Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz insisted good ol’ Charlie Brown and his friends were neither “great art” nor “significant.” Yet Schulz’s acclaimed daily comic strip—syndicated in thousands of newspapers over five decades—brilliantly mirrored tensions in American society during the second half of the 20th century. Focusing on the strip’s Cold War roots, this collection of new essays explores existentialism, the reshaping of the nuclear family, the Civil Rights Movement, 1960s counterculture, feminism, psychiatry and fear of the bomb. Chapters focus on the development of Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Schroeder, Franklin, Shermy, Snoopy and the other characters that became American icons.

Put me in, Coach! The Peanuts gang is ready to play ball in this collection of baseball-themed cartoons. Some of the most popular Peanuts moments happen on the field and they're gathered here for a season full of enjoyment. As manager of the endlessly losing team, Charlie Brown soldiers on to keep his team's spirits up, while being constantly blown off the pitching mound in a clothes-exploding fashion. It doesn't help that his catcher is a musician by nature or that his shortstop is a dog. Not to mention that center-fielder Lucy can't keep her mouth shut long enough to know what's going on in the game! Put them all together and you get a game plan for laughs! First published in 1950, the classic Peanuts strip now appears in more than 2,200 newspapers in 75 countries in 25 languages. Phrases such as "security blanket" and "good grief," which originated in the Peanuts world, are now part of the global vernacular, and images of Charles Schulz's classic characters---Charlie Brown kicking the football, Lucy leaning over Schroeder's piano---are now universally recognized.

For the first time, this deluxe visual history treats Peanuts fans to an in-depth look at the art and making of the beloved animated Peanuts specials. From 1965’s original classic A Charlie Brown Christmas through the 2011 release of Happiness is a Warm Blanket, animation historian Charles Solomon goes behind the scenes of all 45 films, exploring the process of bringing a much-loved comic strip to life. The book showcases the creative development through the years with gorgeous, never-before-seen concept art, and weaves a rich history based on dozens of interviews with former Peanuts directors, animators, voice talent, and layout artists, as well as current industry folk. Filling a void in animation publishing—there is no other history or art book of the Peanuts specials—this volume celebrates five decades of the artistry and humor of Charles M. Schultz and the artists who reimagined the comic for the screen.
