The complete Peanuts 1979 to 1980

Charles M. 1922-2000 Schulz

Book - 2011

"This volume features the long, surprisingly dramatic sequence in which a grievously ill Charlie Brown checks himself into a hospital while his friends worry. But the rest of the stories in this final volume from the 1970s, are far less somber, as Snoopy launches his 'bird scout' treks, Peppermint Patty gets leaked on at school and sues--plus one of the great forgotten romances in Peanuts history."--Back cover.

Review by Booklist Reviews

Although Schulz's much-loved comic strip is considered timeless—the continued reprinting of decades-old episodes in today's newspapers attests to its perennial appeal—it wasn't immune to contemporary trends. In these episodes, Peppermint Patty advocates for women's equity in sports and gets Bo Derek-inspired cornrows. In other anomalous sequences, Charlie Brown's pals express uncharacteristic affection for him when he's hospitalized, and Peppermint Patty falls in love with—of all people—Pig-Pen. But most of the strips here display the comfortable tropes, from Snoopy as a WWI flying ace to Linus awaiting the Great Pumpkin, that Peanuts fans grew to love during its five-decade run.
