    Excellent tribute to a wonderful short film!!!!!!

    This book is a great tribute to the short film, 'A Charlie Brown Christmas.' It is a tradition, in my family, to watch the short film every year. I was excited when I heard there was going to be a book coming out about it. This book is an excellent tribute to 'A Charlie Brown Christmas'!!!! Highly recommended for someone who has watched the show for countless years, or someone who just discovered the joy Peanuts brings to peoples' lives. I LOVE this book! I will read it every year before the show comes on!!! You have to get this book if you love the show!!!!!

    Fascinating celebration of an American classic

    Penned by producer Lee Mendelson and with an introduction by [recently deceased] animator Bill Melendez, this book tells the story of how one of the all-time classic Christmas television specials came to be. Production was a truly 'seat of your pants' affair, and up until the ratings came in, CBS was genuinely afraid they had a dud on their hands. Instead, they got an instant classic that continues to be must-see holiday fare for millions of families today, which through the simplicity and timelessness of its characters and story, remains as relevant today as it was in 1965.

    One of a Kind

    'A charlie Brown Christmas,' one of the great classics of all time. This book brings back so many good childhood memories. All of Charles Schulz's books have good moral values. This story especiallyy hits home for me. It reminds me of the way Christmas's used to be. Whenever I read this story it brings me back to the good ole days of being a kid. I think every family should own a copy of the greatest Christmas story ever written.
