One hundred ninety-two pages of two-color strips & 64 pages of four-color Sunday strips (more than 1,000 strips in all) & photographs are rounded out by Schulz's own comments (offering rare insight into the mind behind the mayhem). Annotation. Will Charlie Brown ever get to kick the footballs? Will Schroeder finally return Lucy's love? Will Linus give up his security blanket? Will Peppermint Party ever pass a test? And, most importantly will Snoopy--that canine literary ace--ever be published? "To take a blank piece of paper and draw characters that people love and worry about is extremely satisfying. It really does not matter what you are called or where your work is placed as long as it brings some kind of joy to some person some place."--Charles Schulz.
