These hardcover versions of Shulz's iconic comics have been gracing the bedrooms of my sons for the last few months.  They trade volumes (usually amicably) every few evenings and never seem to tire of re-reading the same strips.  Along with Calvin and Hobbesopens a new windowGarfieldopens a new window, and many other beloved favorites , the recent additions of The Complete Peanuts have been part of a project at ELPL to replace and refresh some of the most beloved, and checked out, books at the library.  If you haven't enjoyed any of these comics recently, check them out.
