Author(s): Charles Schulz
With her freckles and sports kit, Peppermint Patty shares her outlook on life in this beautifully produced gift book for all generations. In her incomparable style, Peppermint Patty spends her days trying to persuade her best friend Marcie to stop calling her 'Sir', misunderstanding pretty much everyone around her, falling asleep in class, talking to Charlie Brown about matters of the heart and accepting kisses on the nose from Snoopy. For the millions of faithful Charles Schulz fans, and those who fondly remember this forthright little tomboy, this new series of books sees the beguiling Peanuts gang share their sentiments on everything from food to friendship.
