As the 1970s wind down, the last two recurring Peanuts charactershavefallen into place: Snoopy’s brother Spike and the youngest Van Peltsibling,Rerun. But that doesn’t mean Schulz’s creativity has diminished; infact, thisvolume features an amazing profusion of hilariously distinctive new one-(ortwo-) shot characters!
For instance, in an epic five-week sequence, when Charlie Brown, foundguilty by the EPA of biting the Kite-Eating tree, he goes on the lam andends up coaching the “Goose Eggs,” a group of diminutive baseballplayers,Austin, Ruby, Leland, and—did you know there was a second black Peanutscharacter, aside from Franklin?—Milo.
Also: a tennis-playing Snoopy ends up reluctantly teamed with theextremeType “A” athlete Molly Volley... who then reappears later in the book,nowfacing off against her nemesis, “Crybaby” Boobie. (Honest!) Add inSally’snew camp friend Eudora, the thuggish “caddymaster” who shoots downPeppermint Patty and Marcie’s new vocation, an entire hockey team, and asurprise repeat appearance by Linus’s sweetheart “Truffles” (creating alovetriangle with Sally), all in addition to the usual cast of belovedcharacters(including the talking schoolhouse and the doghouse-jigsawing cat, whogets hold of Linus’s blanket in this one), and you’ve got a veritablecrowd ofcharacters.
It’s another two years of the greatest comic strip of all time, full oflaughsand surprises.
