In this volume of The Complete Peanuts, Charlie Brown, found guilty by the EPA of dentally assaulting the Kite-Eating Tree, goes on the lam and ends up coaching the diminutive 'Goose Eggs' baseball team. New characters include the doghouse-dicing neighbour cat and the talking schoolhouse - plus tennis fun with Snoopy and two more newcomers, the cantankerous Molly Volley and 'Crybaby' Boobie.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life -- Bill Clinton
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 * *
The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated -- Umberto Eco
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 * *
