Books like these are just great because you get learn about their whole time on television and comics. I love that there are many pages that have extra items to look at. I love that this book is hardback. My daughter and I enjoy looking at the pictures as snoopy evolved from a little puppy to where he is now.
This winter, Thunder Bay Press is pleased to present The Snoopy Treasures by Peanuts expert Nat Gertler. Timed to the release of The Peanuts Movie, this comprehensive guide tells the story of everyone’s favorite beagle from the beloved childhood pet who inspired his creation, to his status as a cultural icon and beyond.
The Snoopy Treasures is divided into 12 sections covering Snoopy’s origins, his alter egos from Joe Cool to the Flying Ace, his family at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, his friends in the beloved Peanuts gang, and his prevalence in pop culture – in songs, movies, books, plays, parades, museums, and even NASA, who named a lunar landing module after him as they prepared to put man on the moon in 1969.
Each page features original Peanuts panels, side-by-side comparisons showing the evolution of Snoopy into the universally recognizable style we know today, photographs from the Schulz museum, and ten pieces of pullout memorabilia: an original Schulz drawing, a Snoopy baseball pennant (popular dorm décor in the 60s and 70s), a letter from President Ronald Reagan to Schulz, a bookmark, a bumper sticker, a punch out model of the Red Baron’s plane, the last Peanuts strip ever printed, and more.
Lifelong fans and first-timers alike will discover something new within the pages of this in-depth compendium, making TheSnoopy Treasures the perfect holiday gift for Snoopy lovers of all ages.
