MEDIA REVIEWS
Lucy van Pelt - riot grrrl, role model, made of crabby awesome. Every girl I know, of every size, shape, age and hue is getting a copy of this for Christmas * * Red * *
We can find feminist heroes in the most unlikely of places. Lucy van Pelt - the crabbiest big sister, best prankster and amateur psychiatrist - now has her own book, just to remind us of her most important lessons in being a woman ... features pearls of wisdom such as "Don't be satisfied until you're too smart for your own good!" Essential reading * * Emerald Street * *
Fabulous . . . Inspired * * The Bookseller, Editor's Choice * *
It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does . . . at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz * * Seattle Times * *
Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life -- BILL CLINTON
The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated -- UMBERTO ECO
I became obsessed by [Peanuts]. The obvious thing is the wit, and the irony, but there's also a sort of spiritual simplicity in Woodstock and Snoopy, silent clowns who have the deepest thoughts about the human conundrum. And the set-up of the boy who always underachieves and his dog who's brilliant at everything - it's hilarious. We all went to school with a Lucy, or a Linus, or a Pigpen -- JUDE LAW * * Daily Telegraph * *
Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher . . . But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life -- JOHN WATERS
