Snoopy and the Red Baron
Charles M. Schulz
I thought this book was hilarious.I checked it out from the library thinking that it was a collection of Peanuts strips that pertained to the Red Baron, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was more or less a separate story unto itself.The book flap jokingly describes this as "Charles Schulz's first full-length novel."It isn't, of course: it's just a picture book.Still, it's one of the funniest picture books I've ever seen.The humor is less slapstick than I expected; rather, the book is funny because of the changes in voice (as Snoopy sometimes refers to "The World War One Flying Ace" in the third person and sometimes in the first), and because the perspective shifts from dramatic danger in Snoopy's mind to ridiculous antics as witnessed by the neighborhood children.This book is well worth the read.I recommend it to anyone, regardless of age.In fact, adults will probably enjoy it very much, particularly since some humor will go over children's heads.Please don't pass this book up.It may be the imaginative fantasy alter ego for a neurotic dog, but the quirky style is delightful and vastly entertaining.
