The Complete Peanuts: 1963 to 1964

by Charles Schulz

My wife is a long time fan of Peanuts and has been faithfully collecting The Complete Peanuts reprints as finances allow. But there is a limit to her loyalty. She thinks that Mr. Schulz jumped the shark around 1970 or so and will stop collecting as soon as they get to those strips. Me, I'm ready to stop now. Don't get me wrong--this book still is quite entertaining, worth checking out and all. It's just nothing spectacular that I need to read again. The years 1963 and 1964 saw a lot of typical Peanuts gags--from Snoopy's amazing dog house to Charlie Brown's baseball woes. There were some story lines that extended over a few strips, but none really grabbed my attention.
