3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 3 Jun. 2003
Format: Hardcover
Throughout his career as Charlie Brown's dog, Snoopy took on many important projects. Periodically, he could be seen beginning work on a new novel, which invariably began with, "It was a dark and stormy night." This fun book shows Snoopy's work, from beginning the project, through his finding a publisher, and on to the inevitable autograph parties. As an added bonus, Snoopy's whole novel is included for the reader's perusal.
As with all of Charles M. Schulz's work, this Peanuts book is extremely funny. I mean, it stars Snoopy, what can be better that that? This is a great Peanuts book, and a nice addition to anyone's library. If you can buy it then do so, you won't regret it!

This is such a great idea. It takes Snoopy the writer strips to their (il)logical conclusion. Snoopy writes his story, sends it off, is accepted and published. Snoopy's book is contained within this one. Hilarious, especially for anyone who has ever been through the publication process.

Fooled by the Title! 18 Mar. 2004
By "hallran" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ok, for some reason, possibly by the title, cover, and back description, I got the idea this book was going to be all about Snoopy's attempts at the great American novel. Though there are a couple such strips, it is the entire 1995 year. But that ultimately didn't matter.
Full of the usual humor only Schulz could think of, there's the strips that make you laugh lighty, some that make you howl (Conrad, get his beak pierced?), but always make you smile. Good compilation, as usual, and worth the purchase if you're a fan of the strip.
Can't wait for the first book in the new series to come out though!

Finally, the 1995 Year of Peanuts is Chronicled! 4 Mar. 2004
By K. Palmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Since the Peanuts series ended in 2000, Ballantine Books have been issuing compilations of the last years of Peanuts in reverse order (1999-2000 first, then 1998, 1997 and 1996). But for about two years I have waited for a book with the 1995 strips, which would complete their series (earlier years were compiled by other publishers). But in this book, all of the strips from 1995 are published. The strips aren't the best in Peanuts history (I think Schulz did his best work in the 1970's), but they still are interesting to review. This was a period when Schulz did away with his typical four panel weekday strip and mixed things up (with many of his strips being just one large panel).
Since the new Fantagraphics series, which will publish all of the Peanuts strips in order over a 12+ year period won't get to the 1995 season for about 10 years, this book is a must for the Peanuts collector.

Snoopy the struggling author 23 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Snoopy is trying to write a book. He starts with the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night," and it just keeps getting better from there! Snoopy makes a great author! He's so cool sitting on his doghouse with his typewriter! Good job, Snoopy!

What can I say? 25 Jan. 2013
By Bertilak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Snoopy is the Ernest Hemingway of Beagles.

This will make you think; it will make you laugh and it will make you cry.

Well, not really, but it will make you all warm and fuzzy inside and that is more than enough.
