As Peanuts concludes its first decade, a new character makes her appearance: Charlie Brown's little sister Sally. This volume covers her earliest days, from her proud brother's announcement of her birth to her first words (and crush on Linus)! Also: the initial 'Great Pumpkin' sequence; Lucy's first appearance as a nickel psychiatrist; Linus's short-lived and one-sided romance with his beloved teacher Miss Othmar; and Snoopy's battle with the doghouse-destroying freeway bypass. All this, plus two of the most famous Peanuts strips of all time: the 'clouds' Sunday that Schulz cites as his personal favourite and 'Happiness is a warm puppy'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of the finest cultural artifacts made in the 20th century. -- Russell T. Davies
Peanuts was, and is, and will continue to be the finest comic in the world. Bravo. -- Ray Bradbury
The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated. -- Umberto Eco
As powerful a comic art-piece as anything out today . . . will delight Peanuts aficionados. * * Observer * *
Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. * * Daily Telegraph * *
All sorts of important writers have marveled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism . . . by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate . . . in lavishly appointed hardback . . . Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them. * * Spectator * *
These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment. * * The List * *
Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schultz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes . . . * * Herald * *
The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. * * The Skinny * *
In these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. * * Sunday Times * *
The cartoons in The Complete Peanuts are also more than 50 years old, but the downtrodden males, powerful females and consequent clash of personalities feel modern. A real treat. * * Sunday Times * *
