The Snoopy Treasure By Nat Gertler

With the release of the new Peanuts movie how about looking back at Snoopy with The Snoopy Treasure by Nat Gertler from Thunder Bay Press this book is divided into 12 sections covering Snoopy’s origins, his alter egos from Joe Cool to the Flying Ace, his family at the Dasiy Hill Puppy Farm, his friends in the beloved Peanuts gang, and his prevalence in pop culture, in songs, movies, books, plays, parades, museums and even NASA which named a lunar landing module after him as they prepare to put man on the moon in 1969.
Each page features original Peanuts panels, side-by-side comparisons showing the evolution of Snoopy into the universally recognizable style we know today, photographs from the Schulz museum and ten pieces of pullout memorabilia an original Schulz drawing, a Snoopy baseball pennant, a letter from President Ronald Regan to Schulz, a bookmark, a bumper sticker, a punch-out model of the Red Barons’ 

plane, the last Peanuts strip ever printed and more.
My Opinion: I love to watch Peanuts and Snoopy was one of the characters that was cute and cuddly but also a mysterious dog. This book showed me so much that I have never seen before Nat Gertler added some great pictures and set up of the book was fabulous.
