Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This abbreviated version of the holiday cartoon, beloved to nostalgic adults and kids alike, gets the pop-up treatment. All the key elements are here: Charlie Brown's rescue of the scraggliest tree on the lot; Linus's monologue about the true meaning of Christmas, and a closing chorus of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." The paper construction (Snoopy sends Charlie Brown tumbling in an early scene; later, Charlie Brown spins as he calls for quiet on the set) is nifty, though matching the magic of the original is a tall order. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4—Back in the day, it wasn't Christmas until "A Charlie Brown Christmas" was shown on TV. This pop-up adaptation follows the original pretty faithfully. The illustrations are fine, and the pop-up and movable elements are simple. Still, it somehow lacks the charm of the television production—possibly because it doesn't include the voices of the child actors who embodied each character so perfectly. While it's sturdier in construction than many of the elaborate pop-up titles that have been released in recent years, it's still too fragile for repeated usage.—Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
This limp adaptation proves that it takes more than pop-up paper sculptures to make a successful film-to-book transition. Some movable elements are amusing enough—Snoopy races by, towing Linus by his blanket, and sends Charlie Brown tumbling; a pull-out tab spins Charlie Brown around while the rest of the gang goof off—but by and large the tableaux are hopelessly static, and the narration is utterly pallid. "Then Charlie Brown spotted a small, scraggly pine tree. It had a wooden trunk and soft green needles. 'This little green one here seems to need a good home!' he said excitedly." It's not as though access to the animated special is limited in these days of DVD and video on demand; why, for the price of this book, you can buy a copy of the real thing and have a little left over. (Pop-up. 4-8)

    A Christmas classic in book form

    Love the classic Charlie Brown Christmas special and now we can share it with our young son. Probably too young for it, but still enjoys looking at the pictures.
