The Snoopy Treasures with #Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



So many people love Snoopy, and now you can bring him home in a very special way with Nat Gertler's new release of  The Snoopy Treasures.


This large, hardcover book has so much to offer inside. Of course there are the comic strip drawings we all know and love. These always make me happy, I guess because they instantly take me back to being a kid. While my grandparents were parked with their newspapers in front of them reading, one of them would always slip me the comics so I could do some reading too. Of course, Snoopy was always on my agenda.


There's also a great amount of history on Snoopy included in the book as well. The Physical Evolution you see above generated a happy smile for me. While I wasn't alive in the 50's or 60's, I do remember seeing the drawings that looked like that here and there. The 1950's Snoopy was a beauty, don't you think? I do love the version that is popular today though too. :)


A really, really cool feature of this book is the envelopes that are included throughout. Inside of each page-sized envelope you will find hidden treasures. Things like bumper stickers, prints, etc. That makes the reading more fun for the kids, who love to come across little surprises. It also gives you a permanent home to store the treasures so that everyone who picks up the book can enjoy them too.


The picture above is of the comic strip author Charles Schulz and his beloved pal (and creation), Snoopy. I thought that was a cool item to add. Though I know the author's name well, I don't think I've ever actually seen his picture.

I enjoyed everything about this book, and I'm very happy to have it as a permanent part of our collection. You can get your copy here (Amazon).

Thunder Bay Press presents:

Timed to the release of The Peanuts Movie, The Snoopy Treasures (November 2015; $34.95; ISBN: 978-1-62686-440-5) tells the story of everyone’s favorite beagle from the beloved childhood pet who inspired his creation, to his status as a cultural icon and beyond.
This comprehensive guide is divided into 12 sections covering Snoopy’s origins, his alter egos from Joe Cool to the Flying Ace, his family at the Daisy 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, who named a lunar landing module after him as they prepared 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 (popular dorm d├ęcor in the 60s and 70s), a letter from President Ronald Reagan to Schulz, a bookmark, a bumper sticker, a punch out model of the Red Baron’s plane, the last Peanuts strip ever printed, and more.
Lifelong fans and first-timers alike will discover something new within the pages of this in-depth compendium, makingThe Snoopy Treasures the perfect holiday gift for Snoopy lovers of all ages.
