It's Christmas! The Peanuts gang is getting into the Christmas Spirit -- everyone except for Charlie Brown, that is. Despite the merry caroling and Christmas cheer, he can't help feeling that everybody has forgotten what Christmas is truly all about. Luckily for him, Lucy is organizing a Christmas party with lots of hilarious holiday surprises and a Christmas message to celebrate the season.
This classic Peanuts story is based on the Emmy and Peabody award-winning television special and video, and is packaged for the first time with four songs from the original soundtrack, performed by acclaimed pianist Vince Guaraldi and the Vince Guaraldi Trio. This gift edition is perfect for Peanuts fans of all ages.
Published by Little Simon, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing. ISBN 0-689-85357-2.
With illustrator Paige Braddock aping Charles Schulz's style, A Charlie Brown Christmas retells the Emmy Award-winning program blow-by-blow (with a few omissions), from the ice-skating opening scene to preparations for the school pageant to Charlie Brown's ill-fated Christmas tree rescue. Braddock almost perfectly mimics the show's cast and backdrops, but just as no one could be fooled by even expert impersonation of a loved one, Peanuts fans might find the niggling differences distracting (whether it's Schroeder's too-wavy hair or Pig Pen's just-too-small head).
A "novelization" like this probably can't ever hope to completely recapture the charm of the original, even if it had used Schulz's original art. Although the dialogue has been faithfully reproduced, much of the story's subtle appeal and cultural subtext gets lost in the book's simplified exposition--which is too bad, given that these are precisely the qualities which have made the show (and Schulz's timeless strip) so durable and well-loved in the first place. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes
