As the first decade of Peanuts closes, major new additions to classic Peanuts lore come fast and furious here. Snoopy begins to take up residence atop his doghouse, and his repertoire of impressions increases exponentially. Lucy sets up her booth and offers her first five-cent psychiatric counsel. For the very first time, Linus spends all night in the pumpkin patch on his lonely vigil for the Great Pumpkin. Even more importantly, several years after the last addition to the cast (“Pig-Pen”), Charlie Brown’s sister Sally makes her appearance — first as an (off-panel) brand new baby for Charlie to gush over, then as a toddler and eventually a real, talking, thinking cast member. (By the end of this volume, she’ll already start developing her crush on Linus.) All this, and one of the most famous Peanuts strips ever: “Happiness is a warm puppy.” The introduction is by comedienne extraordinaire Whoopi Goldberg, who reveals which Peanuts character she has tattooed on her body (and where) — as well as telling of her meeting with “Sparky” Schulz, and her fascinating theory on Snoopy’s brother Spike.
