    1. This is the penultimate volume in The Complete Peanuts series so I am feeling sad only one volume to go There is some familiar brilliance, a few surprises, and a few strips that are stale ideas that perhaps might not have found their way to print a decade earlier Schulz s hand is not as steady so some lines quiver a touch But in years 47 and 48 of doing Peanuts there is still much that works than doesn t There are fresh spins on perennial jokes Charlie Brown s kick of the football held by Lucy [...]

    2. In the penultimate volume of The Complete Peanuts book series, we once again find Rerun Van Pelt, Linus and Lucy s younger brother, one of the main characters in the strip This isn t a bad thing as Rerun brought fresh energy and perspective to Peanuts Not that the strip needed it Schulz, even in the final years of his career, was writing and drawing some of the best comic strips ever produced That he was still coming up with fresh ideas and new ways of dealing with some of the tropes of Peanuts [...]

    3. This volume sees the return of Crybaby Boobie, and Rerun Van Pelt really developing as a character Andy and Olaf s misdirection seems to be the running gag of this volume, with one strip showing Snoopy writing thoughtfully about them and musing we ll probably never see them again Did Charles Schulz just kill off two of his characters I wondered when I read this Continuing the thought, I realized that I was reading the penultimate volume and started wondering about the circumstances and timeline [...]

    4. pp 1 10 Jan 1997 BWSummary Snoopy, a personified dog, and his quirky gang of human kid friends play simple pranks on one another Snoopy takes on over the top challenges and his friends fill in adult roles of accountant, psychiatrist, etc Historical knowledge is not necessary to understand this timeless classic Visual Keywords multi panel sequentialText Style Potential Readers kids teens adults parents anyone dog loversAwards none notedOther

    5. I read all the old peanuts books I could get my hands on as a kid For some reason I always assumed that the quality kind of tapered off at the end But it s entirely the opposite These strips from 1997 1998 are exceptionally good.

    6. There were some gems, but overall the strips in these years were not very funny It was a struggle to get through.

    7. Lots of good stuff here, especially considering how late in the run this is My favorites included Sally s different philosophies e.g Why are you telling me , Snoopy s brothers Andy and Olaf getting lost again and again, and lots of Rerun in kindergarten There s also a heavy emphasis on Peppermint Patty and Marcie fighting over Charlie Brown it s amazing how many girls get involved with him

    8. This collection contains many strips that are as striking and original as Schulz s 60s work, and at least two strips that made me laugh aloud 6 25 and 6 27 97 Unfortunately, it also contains way predictable and uninspired gags than the previous two collections combined I m not complaining, though Even at its lamest, I m almost embarrassed to admit how much comfort Peanuts provides.

    9. This is the next to last volume of The Complete Peanuts Any Peanuts fan will enjoy this trip back in time.It was amazing to see the transformation of how the characters appeared.

    10. Still plenty of smiles to be had in this volume and I m sad knowing there is only one volume to come.
