Review: Snoopy, Master of Disguise by Charles M. Schulz


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:
No one has a greater imagination than Snoopy. Join everyone's favorite beagle as he confounds and confuses the whole Peanuts gang!
MY TAKE:
I love Peanuts, so this collection of strips showing Snoopy being different characters was a welcome read for me.

Snoopy, Master of Disguise gathers comic strips featuring Snoopy as he pretends to be one thing or another.

Majority of the strips here seem familiar to me, but there was at least a few that I don't remember reading before. Some of these strips are part of the Tapioca Pudding story arc. I've heard of her before, but I don't recall seeing her until now. This actually makes me quite happy because this means that there are still plenty of Peanuts strips out there that I haven't gotten around to yet.

While Woodstock is my favorite, and I loved the parts here wherein he showed up, I was quite happy with the selection of comic strips included here. Some of Snoopy's disguises in this book included the ones he does most often, like the vulture, Joe Cool and the World War I flying ace, as well as the more generic ones like census taker.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you're a fan of Snoopy, this is a must-read for you.

Thanks to NetGalley and Open Road Integrated Media for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. It includes some pretty funny strips.
  2. It includes comic strips featuring Snoopy as his iconic alter egos.
  3. It's a fun, light read. 

THE BAD:

  1. I would have preferred if all the comic strips featuring a particular disguise or alter ego were grouped accordingly. 

READ IT IF:

  1. You are a Peanuts fan.
  2. Snoopy is your favorite character.
  3. You are looking for a quick fun book you can read on and off.
