The Snoopy Treasures *Review

 The Snoopy Treasures
A Celebration of the World Famous Beagle

The Snoopy Treasures is divided into 12 sections covering Snoopy’s origins, his alter egos from Joe Cool to the Flying Ace, his family at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, his friends in the beloved Peanuts gang, and his prevalence in pop culture – in songs, movies, books, plays, parades, museums, and even NASA, who named a lunar landing module after him as they prepared to put man on the moon in 1969.
Each page features original Peanuts panels, side-by-side comparisons showing the evolution of Snoopy into the universally recognizable style we know today, photographs from the Schulz museum, and ten pieces of pullout memorabilia: an original Schulz drawing, a Snoopy baseball pennant (popular dorm d├ęcor in the 60s and 70s), a letter from President Ronald Reagan to Schulz, a bookmark, a bumper sticker, a punch out model of the Red Baron’s plane, the last Peanuts strip ever printed, and more.
Lifelong fans and first-timers alike will discover something new within the pages of this in-depth compendium, making The Snoopy Treasures the perfect holiday gift for Snoopy lovers of all ages.

What a treasure! For fans young and old, this treasury is a perfect gift! I love Snoopy, he is truly an American icon. We continue to watch The Peanuts Gang from their Great Pumpkin, to their Christmas show. They are a staple in our holiday. Now with the a new movie on the big screen, Snoopy is popular once again. 

 The history is rich and great for myself and the kids to learn more about this beagle. I love the 'extra's that they have included from drawings, to bookmarks and bumper stickers. Great memorabilia to share or keep!
For any new or old Snoopy collector, this is the perfect gift! Very detailed biography of one of the best!
