As The Complete Peanuts reaches its halfway point, Snoopy's family suddenly expands, adding a brother (Spike), a sister (Belle), and even a nephew. Also in this volume, the Linus/Snoopy/Truffles love triangle, Peppermint Patty's Powder Puff Derby and obedience-school fiascos, Charlie Brown's meeting with his idol Joe Shlabotnik, Marcie's unwanted suitor, and the final fate of the talking schoolhouse building. Plus an introduction by SNL writer, 'Triumph the Insult Comic Dog' creator, and lifelong Peanuts fan Robert Smigel.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 * *
Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz's work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book * * Huffington Post * *
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 * * The Seattle Times * *
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 * * Sunday Times * *
All sorts of important writers have marvelled 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 * *
As essential as pop texts get * * The Onion * *
