This volume of The Complete Peanuts reaches the middle of the go-go 1980s. In this volume: Peppermint Patty wins her school's essay contest, but snatches defeat from the jaws of victory with a disastrous acceptance speech; Lucy talks Charlie Brown into posing for their school's "Swimsuit issue"; Snoopy accidentally destroys his doghouse with a cannon; Sally gives Santa Claus a heart attack (literally!); and Snoopy's brother Spike pops up in various deadpan vignettes set in the desert. With its impeccable production values The Complete Peanuts launched a renaissance in comic strip publishing and is the only place Charles M. Schulz's classic has ever been collected in its entirety.
