who loves Charlie Brown This book is excellent very beautiful and vibrant pictures This isloves Charlie Brown This book is excellent very beautiful and vibrant pictures This is Schulz art at it s finest if you are a fan of Charles Schulz art and The Peanuts Gang you need to add this series of books to your collection It would also make a treasured book for children as this is what it s meant to be and certainly brings the magic of the season alive A pretty nearly yearly read in this house and a classic of course featuring the somewhat confused Linus who writes a letter to the Great Pumpkin fully expecting him to arrive with presents It won t be me to tell him the truth having kept secrets about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny from my own children for years WBut who could deny the adoring younger sister Sally the opportunity to sit in the most sincere pumpkin patch with her sweet brother Linus Who would dare call them clueless And of course Charlie Brown sorry spoiler ets a rock in his trick or treat bag in spite of that he is still there to comfort Linus in the end I didn t realize the book has been around. Ts' classic television special features Linus iving up trick or treating on Halloween to. .
