Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales is one of many prime-time animated TV specials based on characters from the Charles M. Schulz comic strip Peanuts. It originally aired on ABC December 8, 2002.

I bought this adorable "Charlie Brown Christmas" book in December for my granddaughter who's . years ol. years old. It is now February, and we're still reading it! She is obsessed with the sparkly cover and the bright pictures. In the very beginning it offered an option of a popup book and maybe that is what I should have chosen, but once I said no it took away the option.

There are a few different versions of this songbook, and unfortunately the reviews seem to be confusing as some people said it was very easy while others said it is extremely difficult. Some reviews are even for the soundtrack CD! How do you know which one you're getting, when all the reviews are lumped together??? I wanted to make sure I was getting a version for my child was neither too easy nor too difficult. I did a little research on Sheet Music Plus. Just make sure to check the ISBN number on the version you are ordering off Amazon. Here are the descriptions:

ISBN 0634029827 Piano/Keyboard - SMP Primer Level (Early Elementary) Very beginning music. Five-finger positions with no chords and almost no hand position movement. This book has duet part for the teacher.

ISBN 0634029800 Piano/Keyboard - SMP Level 4 (Intermediate) Introduction of 4-note chords and sixteenth notes. Hand movement covering 2 to 3 octaves.

ISBN 0634029797 Piano/Keyboard - SMP Level 7 (Late Intermediate) 4 to 5-note chords in both hands and scales in octaves in both hands.

This set is excellent, and (almost) everything I hoped for. Perhaps even more, as the books are huge. OK, they're smaller than the Peanuts "Artist's Edition" but they're a lot bigger than the Complete Peanuts books.

The colouring is perfectly suited to the strip. It is described as being the same used in the newspapers of the time. I don't have any to compare (what do you expect? I wasn't born then) but it is subdued, not flashy.

Obviously if you have Complete Peanuts for the period, then there's nothing new in these books. But the coloured versions give a new light to them. And it's nice to be able to see (instead of just imagine) Schroeder turning "three shades of green".

My one gripe (and it also applies to the Complete Peanuts series) is: why do Fantagraphics get people who don't really know about Peanuts to write the introductions? Jonathan Rosenbaum spends two pages describing what Lucy does in one particular strip, but... it isn't Lucy. Anyone who is at all familiar with Peanuts can see that the person concerned is Violet. And how come nobody at Fantagraphics actually checks these details?

If you, like I, have purchased the entire set of The Complete Peanuts you'll already have all the Sunday strips featured in these books in black-and-white. And yet this is still a must-have.

I've been collecting Peanuts books since the 1970's. I have all the Peanuts Parade books and even hung on to a lot of the old Fawcett-Crest books I read over and over again as a kid. I was so much of a Peanuts fanatic growing up that every Sunday I clipped out the Peanuts comic from the paper and pasted it in a book (that'll be one of those "when I was a kid..." speeches for my daughter).

And yet 40 years later, to this day I'd never seen any of the original Sunday strips as they were intended to be seen.

These books are absolutely gorgeous. The measure a gigantic 10" x 13" so they are much, much larger than any other Sunday strip collection before it, including the Complete Peanuts books. I recall from reading the history of Peanuts that Schulz went through years of frustration as newspapers started out featuring Sunday comics in large form factors, but over the years for cost-cutting purposes made the panels smaller and smaller and in some cases cut panels out to make them fit a paper--in most cases ruining Schulz's artistry and in many cases even the story line. But with this collection, you see the strips as they were intended to be seen--and as they have not been seen in 62 years. The sizing is no coincidence--they are the size of how they would have appeared in the best newspapers from the beginning.

As most comic strip artists do, Schulz sent his strips out to be colored before publication, so the fact that these were re-colored by Fantagraphics isn't in any way taking from their authenticity. In fact, Fantagraphics has done an amazing job of coloring the strips to Schulz's specifications and because the strips are printed on high quality paper and not newsprint, they are likely closer to what Schulz intended than even what people saw in the original Sunday papers. The colors pop off the page. It's like looking at an 60 inch digital color HDTV after years of looking at an old 10 inch analog black-and-white CRT.

The books weigh in at an impressive 4.5 pounds each (9 pounds total). They are so beautiful that I need to go buy a new coffee table to match how beautiful these would look on it. There is nothing at all I can say against the actual production quality of these books. They are perfection.

That said, I do agree with Kevin's gripe about this book and the whole Complete Peanuts series that the "celebrities" that Fantagraphics found to write the introductions are for the most part terrible. I suppose "fair weather fans" probably won't mind them, but to hardcore fans (who will be buying these books) a lot of them are like fingers on a chalkboard, similar to how annoying it is when celebrities give their opinion on politics or child-rearing and think their opinion means anything just because they're a celebrity (there was an introduction by Whoopie Goldberg in one of the Complete Peanuts books that I literally wanted to rip out of the book). Do what I do and just skip over them.

But ranting aside, I won't let that get in the way of a wholehearted 5-star review. This belongs in the library of every hardcore Peanuts fan, and everyone else.
