Charlie Brown has made an indelible mark on many treasured American holidays and traditions. And who can forget the most romantic --- and occasionally loneliest --- of all holidays?

Sometimes getting together with friends and family for Thanksgiving isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, as Snoopy learns when his brother Spike invites him to spend Thanksgiving in the desert, and things don’t quite work out as planned. At least it’s a change of pace for Snoopy, who spends most Thanksgivings with the ol’ supper dish (and one lonely one at the malt shoppe as Joe Cool). It’s also a tense time of year to be a bird who’s afraid of being mistaken for a turkey and roasted, and Woodstock copes with his anxieties in various ways, including by donning a disguise with Snoopy’s help. Meanwhile, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, and Franklin all get sick over their Thanksgiving vacation. Snoopy’s Thanksgiving is the perfect gift book for anyone whose idea of the holiday is more Charlie Brown than Norman Rockwell.

Linus and his wait for the Great Pumpkin have been a pop culture touchstone for nearly 50 years thanks to the animated television special (“I got a rock”), and it all started in the classic Peanuts strips (1959-1962) collected in this affordable, fun-sized gift book. Linus’s proselytizing that on Halloween, the Great Pumpkin rises from the pumpkin patch and travels the world bringing presents to good little girls and boys are derided by his sister Lucy, laughed at by Charlie Brown, met with skepticism by baby Sally, and even causes “denominational squabbling” over who’s better, the Great Pumpkin or Santa Claus. Year after year, Linus faces his persecution and inevitable disappointment with either blind faith or Quixotic perseverance. Charles M. Schulz’s homage to the power of idealism and belief makes these some of the most beloved comic strips of all time.
