Book 262: A Charlie Brown Christmas

A Charlie Brown Christmas, by Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts Worldwide, 2008.

One of the best things about television at Christmas time is the Charlie Brown Christmas special.  And one of the best things about Kohl's is there Kohl's Cares program.  So when Kohl's was featuring The Peanuts this Christmas season, I went a little crazy.  (But who doesn't want a Snoopy?)

The book is based on the Christmas special, so it is not quite as much fun as a panel comic strip or the television special itself, but it does capture the story and much of the spirit of the special very well.  The illustrations actually have a bit more modeling and shading than the original Charlie Brown Christmas, but that just makes them feel a bit more modern and takes away none of the charm.
