Launching into the 1960s, Schulz adds another new cast member. Two, in fact: The obnoxious Frieda, of "naturally curly hair" fame, and her inert, seemingly boneless cat Faron. The rapidly maturing Sally, who was after all just born in the previous volume, is ready to start kindergarten and not at all happy about it. Linus' life is particularly turbulent in this volume, as he is forced to wear glasses, sees the unexpected return of his favorite teacher, Miss Othmar, and coaxes Sally into the cult of the Great Pumpkin (with regrettable results). Snoopy, meanwhile, becomes a compulsive water sprinkler head stander, unhappily befriends a snowman or two, and endures a family crisis involving a little family of birds. Plus baseball blowouts (including a rare team victory), Beethoven birthdays, and plenty of dubious psychiatric help for a nickel. This book collects 730 daily and Sunday comic strips, the vast majority of which are not currently available in any in-print Peanuts collection, and many of which have never been reprinted since their initial appearance in papers over 50 years ago. New introduction by legendary jazz pianist/vocalist Diana Krall!

If you think that each volume of these superbly done Complete Peanuts Volumes are the same, please reconsider. For instance, in this volume the cynicism was dialed up more frequently. Lucy tells us, "A true work of art takes at least an hour." Snoopy laments, "How can you enjoy it when they make you feel guilty." When reading strip reprints, I believe for the full original flavor it is best to read them more in the serial manner in which they were published - I go about 2 pages a day, a half week's worth. A quick plus for this handsome series - each volume as a great index, which I wish more books with newspaper strip reprints would do.
