Charles Schulz enters his fourth decade as the greatest cartoonist of his generation and Peanuts remains as fresh as ever. This volume includes classic storylines such as a hospitalized Charlie Brown and a litigious Peppermint Patty (sporting cornrows) hiring a lawyer (unfortunately, Snoopy). Snoopy tries on identities, launches an airline and engages in an especially eventful trek with Woodstock and the scout troop. Plus a romance that will startle even long-time Peanuts connoisseurs: Peppermint Patty and… “Pig-Pen”?!
