The best farewell gift from Charles Schulz
on 30 October 2000
Some might say Charles Schulz lost his touch a bit a few years ago, and found it again in recent years. This books sure puts him back in topform: you just have to read the joke with the snowglobe. It makes you just the more sad Charles Schulz has died and we won't see any new strips from him. The only drawback of this book is that, even though the back mentioned its inclusion, "the unforgettable farewell strip" is missing! The title of the book is a nice reminder of the very first collection "Peanuts", way back 50 years ago. As a celebration it's wonderful to see all the strips in colour, not only the sundaystrips. And, maybe not intended as such, the ten blank pages at the end of the book are a symbolic way of saying this is definitely the end. Thank you Charles, for giving us so much joy with Peanuts, and for giving us the opportunity to stay kids, even though we grow up. To me you'll live forever.
