BOOK REVIEW: The Bumper Book of Peanuts by Charles M Schulz

October 2015
Hardback, $35.00
Reviewed by Shane Pinnegar

Comic Strip


There’s nothing to say about Charles M Schulz’s wonderful life’s work of Peanuts comic strips that hasn’t already been said: he tapped perfectly into the modern human condition by depicting the world through the eyes of a bunch of young children, and the formula worked so staggeringly well that he continued to hold them in perpetual stasis as children for over fifty years.

This latest coffee-table sized volume is loosely collected into sections based on subjects such as Baseball, Beethoven, The Cat Next Door, The Great Pumpkin, Joe Cool, Needles, The Red Baron, Suppertime!, Valentines and many more, and features all the characters we’ve loved for generations.

There’s no question about whether you need Peanuts in your life and in your home: the only question is, will you buy it for yourself, or buy it for a family member and then “borrow” it in perpetuity?
