    3.5 Stars Read all my reviews on http://urlphantomhive.booklikes.com I'd only read Woodstock: Master of Disguise before reading this Peanuts collection (my Netgalley copy of Snoopy: Master of Disguise was corrupted and couldn't be corrected unfortunately), but I really enjoyed reading this collection as well. Mostly very short comics, but with some often reappearing themes it was a very nice read, even for people who might be less familiar with the Peanuts gang and Snoopy in particular.

    'Snoopy: Contact!' is a collection of Peanuts reprints, featuring Snoopy. I loved this collection because many of the comics featured are from the late 1960s, which I think are the golden era of the strip. The strips in this feature Snoopy as the great World War I Flying Ace, but we also see him as a vulture and a piranha. His Sopwith Camel is shot down by the Red Baron and he is stuck behind enemy lines. He is also snowed on, and his house gets burned down (including his Van Gogh!).

His Sopwith Camel is shot down by the Red Baron and he is stuck behind enemy lines. He is also snowed on, and his house gets burned down (including his Van Gogh!). He meets an unnamed bird that has problems flying and is confused about his direction. This bird wouldn't get a name until later in the strip, but we know him as Woodstock. Charlie Brown also makes Snoopy manager of his team, and even trades him off to Peppermint Patty for 5 players. I love Peanuts and especially Snoopy. He's always been a favorite of mine. The strips in here are reprints and colorized, but done well. There is a flip book cartoon that runs along the pages, and a section in the back with maps and flying terms from World War I, which would have been handy when I first read these strips, but it made me seek out encyclopedias to find out where Tipperary was and why it was such a long way. I think this would be a fun collection for kids, and I certainly had a great time reading it. i received a review copy of this graphic novel from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    I received a copy of this comic from the publisher via Netgalley in return for an honest review. I always loved watching Peanuts when I was younger, but this is my first time actually reading any comics about the characters. I love Snoopy, he is such a funny, cute and adorable dog. Reading this helped me re-live my childhood and was also just a thoroughly fun and entertaining read.

Snoopy the cheshire Beagle was a real highlight for me. If you loved Peanuts as a child then you really need to pick this up. For a comic it took me a reasonable amount of time to read through which was a good thing. If you manage to finish this comic without having It's a Long Way to Tipperary or Pack up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag stuck in your head, then there is something wrong. I can't recommend this comic enough.

I really loved Snoopy and the whole Peanuts gang when growing up, the TV show was amazing and it always made me laugh. Reading this, I felt like I was a child again, it brought back so many memories and made me feel so nostalgic. It's great to see all these amazing characters he liked to play when being on his adventures, the best of all being The World War I Flying Ace with his Sopwith Camel, in his never-ending battle against The Red Baron. That's actually the one we see the most of in this collection. And, even though Snoopy is the big star of this comic, Charlie Brown and his friends make it as memorable with their everyday struggles. I used to love Charlie Brown as much as I loved Snoopy, and it's funny that, now that I'm all grown up, I can relate more to his problems and identify with him. Little Chuck is a fighter. We also get to see a lot of Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Linus, Schroeder and all the others, even little Woodstock, going on their own adventures like visiting a pumpkin patch and waiting for The Great Pumpkin, or even putting up a booth to provide psychiatric help for the other children. This is a very entertaining read for people of any age, especially if you grew up watching the show or reading the comic strips. More reviews on my blog: Lipstick and Mocha

Don't you worry about all the things that can happen? That's better...live in dread...and fear...be sensible... (Snoopy) He he he he he he he. Premise/plot: Snoopy: Contact! is a collection of Peanuts comic strips. Probably half of the comics in this collection feature Snoopy as a World War I Flying Ace in pursuit of the Red Baron. The other half in this collection focuses on all the characters and takes readers through all four seasons. One of my favorite Flying Ace strips has Snoopy imagining himself landing behind the trenches having to crawl over/under barbed wire before he's spotted by enemy machine gunners. The barbed wire is really a jump rope in action. That comic is on page 14. Another favorite strip has Snoopy singing for his dinner. I could really RELATE to this one. Charlie Brown ends the strip saying, "I must admit he's a very satisfying person to cook for." This strip is on page 29. (Page 30 has a great summer-themed strip.) A little later on readers see Snoopy going through a photo album. What's making him so happy? He's looking at pictures of all the supper dishes he's ever owned. (107) Ever wondered if Snoopy is the kind of dog to make plans? (Charlie Brown) Well, Snoopy, what are your plans for today? (Snoopy) Plans? I hadn't even thought about it. But I suppose I'll sleep a little this morning...then this afternoon, I'll take a short nap, and later on I'll try to get more sleep...those are good plans. (54) One of my favorite winter-themed strips has Snoopy skating. Snoopy has had to do a lot of his practicing at night...because otherwise he's "surrounded by flocks of admiring girls..." (141). My thoughts: I really love this collection. Snoopy and Linus are my favorite characters from Peanuts. The book is a quick read. I often found myself wanting to share strips with others.

    There is something special about a Snoopy book. And when your youngest daughter checks it out of the library for you that just makes it that much better. Join Snoopy and some of his pals on some wacky Snoopy adventures in this great book where it is all Snoopy all the time. I love the focus on the greatest dog of all time. What an imagination this beagle, and Schulz, had.

    A Solid Snoopy Collection The first book collecting "Peanuts" strips came out in 1952, and for the next fifty years the Peanuts gang was a major part of public culture. Everyone knew Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang and most people were familiar with the main running story arcs. Of course, as is so often the case, some of the supporting characters became very popular in their own rights, and Snoopy was probably the most important and recognizable breakout character. Well, time has not been k A Solid Snoopy Collection The first book collecting "Peanuts" strips came out in 1952, and for the next fifty years the Peanuts gang was a major part of public culture. Everyone knew Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang and most people were familiar with the main running story arcs. Of course, as is so often the case, some of the supporting characters became very popular in their own rights, and Snoopy was probably the most important and recognizable breakout character. Well, time has not been kind to the physical reminders of the gravy days of the 50's and 60's. My old collections have torn paper covers, sad dried out spines, and brittle yellow pages. Who knew back then that those one dollar each collections needed to be printed on archival paper? This collection is just right for anyone who wants a broad and reasonably thorough reminder of the best of Peanuts. As you might expect, the focus is on Snoopy rather than Charlie Brown, which is a final indignity that Charlie probably would have seen coming. But, because Snoopy was central to pretty much everything that went on, especially in the earlier days, (but without any thought balloons of his own in the very first years), a Snoopy collection ends up being a survey of the whole Peanuts gang. I have to admit that I thought the whole World War I flying ace thing went on too long, and you do get a lot of that here. But you also get Snoopy the vulture, Snoopy the bane of Lucy's life, Snoopy and the birds, and of course Snoopy and long-suffering Charlie. There are also a fair number of stand alone bits that remind you that Snoopy could also toss off some deadpan commentary on the state of society, and there are some reminders that there could be a bit of edge and vinegar in the Charlie Brown world and in Snoopy's observations. So, bottom line, if you'd like a nice Snoopy summary, or an easily accessible Kindle edition, or a fun book to look at with your little reader, this generous collection might very well fit the bill. (Please note that I received a free advance will-self-destruct-in-54-days Adobe ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.)

    Curse you Red Baron! I love this book. If you've ever wondered what it's like for a World War 1 flying Ace/Beagle to face the dreaded Red Baron this is the book for you. And yes, if you defeat the Baron it's all you can drink Root Beer at the Officers Club. Though he does not defeat the Baron Snoopy does show us how the life of a Beagle can be very exciting but also drab. That's alright because there's not many things that a kiss on the nose can't fix. The sad part is the loss of so many Sopwith Curse you Red Baron! I love this book.

The sad part is the loss of so many Sopwith Camels. Beagle maybe brave but they aren't very good at not being shot down by the Red Baron or anyone else for that matter. Thats besides the point. The point is this book is fun. And if someone you know has a Beagle that wants to be a World War 1 fighter Ace well than you tell that person to let that Beagle fly. He won't fly far and he'll probably be shot down by the Red Baron but that will only bring them closer to their Beagle as they both shout. CURSE YOU RED BARON! I read this book via NetGalley. I thank them for this book.

Oh dear Lucy, now I know how much I missed your feisty and yet friendly personality! The only thing that was a litle off for me was basically some of the comic strip's quality (some of them were not that sharp) but at the end of the day, I enjoyed it and personally recommend :)

My issue with these books as they tend to be quite dull. We lose out on the storylines as they come in and out quite randomly. They're also very repetitive. These books are difficult to read in one go, they're more of a bathroom book to flip through randomly. Worth a read if you're a Peanuts fan or want something to read in the bathroom. Definitely a good read for kids to flip through at the library or something as well.

    Arguably the greatest cartoonist of all time, Charles M. Schulz employed elements that guaranteed success-- simplicity, humor, honesty and truth. With his iconic character Snoopy, Schulz added a little fantasy into the mix. As the Flying Ace, Snoopy has entertained generations of readers in his search for the Red Baron. Snoopy: Contact! is a new anthology of Snoopy's imaginative adventures. The whole PEANUTS gang is here as well, playing supporting roles to this collection's star attraction.

    Humor is a tricky thing; it often doesn't translate from one generation to another. Fortunately Snoopy is an exception. Since he first appeared in the 1950's he's been delighting people with his imagination, style, and sharp comments. This book proves he's still alive, still funny, and looking good for a dog his age. I giggled and laughed aloud while I read this, and I don't think all the appeal is nostalgic.

    As one might expect, this is a collection of comic strips—all Sunday editions—featuring the dog who thinks he’s a WW1 pilot trying to shoot down the Red Baron. I probably saw all these as a kid, but I still laughed again. More than that, I was intrigued by all the research put into the situations; there were mentions of cities, battles, even going on leave, from the time period that more often than not helped the jokes.

More than that, I was intrigued by all the research put into the situations; there were mentions of cities, battles, even going on leave, from the time period that more often than not helped the jokes. It’s hard to imagine there are many people who haven’t heard of this comic strip, even if it was just through the holiday specials. That makes it hard to say much about the characters, the artwork, and so on. Everything here is as it should be.

    This is Snoopy, and the Peanuts gang. Unless you’ve living under a rock the past decades or have no knowledge of popular culture whatsoever, there’s not much to explain about the comic strips. Funny, witty, charming. This collection in particular is heavily focused on the Red Baron stripes, which are not my favorites, but there are some other fantastic arcs: Charlie Brown trading Snoopy in the baseball team, Snoopy’s house burning down (even the Van Gogh!), Linus waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

    Well, if you like Snoopy, you will sure like this book for sure. Snoopy is back and it sure is funny and entertaining. He is a WWI pilot in this one and you get to go on his quests with him. And of course you get to see him on his daily life and getting in his regular troubles as regular. Totally recommend this cute read. 4 out 5 stars.

    If you read the Peanuts and loved everyone's favorite beagle and his trials with life an especially his imagination, this is the collection for you. This volume brings us Snoopy's famous battles with the infamous Red Baron intermixed with other short episodic arcs that defined the character. At first I was hoping it would be exclusively Red Baron material, but I found the other stories help keep the Red Baron arcs fresh and do not distract, but compliment and enhance the enjoyment of this collec If you read the Peanuts and loved everyone's favorite beagle and his trials with life an especially his imagination, this is the collection for you.
