This book is the first book-length graphic novel not based on an animated story that was originally created for a Japanese publisher. While it definitely takes its cues from Charles M. Schulz' comic strips (and the feature film Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown), in places it just doesn't feel like something Schulz would have done. Schulz purists may not enjoy this book, but it is a colorful travel adventure for Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends that has the gang going to Tokyo to play in a little league playoff game and indulging in some sightseeing along the way. (Watch for Snoopy's brother Olaf in a cute sumo wrestling sequence.)

I was very excited about the Peanuts gang exploring the wonders of Japan. It was a bit of a surprise that their baseball team was chosen by the president himself. Then again, this takes place in the same world where they just hand-wave Snoopy's unconventional behavior. I also love the fact that the new creators don't resort to lampoons and crude humor. It was like the spirit of good ole Charles Schulz himself wrote this very comic. I hope for many new stories to come that will hopefully include the untold stories of Snoopy's other siblings.

The kids just read Peanuts books over and over again. You can’t beat the classics and my kids can’t get enough of them.

Like all Peanuts comics that are done without Sparky, this volume lacks his signature charm. However, since that charm is impossible to replicate, this shouldn't be approached with the expectation that it will achieve the greatness of Schulz's original works. "It's Tokyo, Charlie Brown" is very cute and fun in its own right, and stays very true to the spirit of the original. All the characters have the right feel and none of the narrative action alienates the reader; it all feels believable in the world of Peanuts. However, the main crux of the plot, wherein the President of the United States himself asks Charlie Brown's baseball team to represent the country in Japan, certainly feels like a bit of a stretch. But hey, if the Lovable Loser can achieve such iconic status in real-world culture, why not a little recognition in his own world?
The Snoopy/Woodstock vignettes are vintage silliness, feeling like they were ripped right out of an animated special. In fact, the entire comic feels like a paperback version of an animated special. That's not a bad thing, especially if you put a little Vince Guaraldi on in the background while you're reading.
I enjoy Japan and Japanese culture myself, so I liked seeing these beloved characters in this setting. Probably my favorite page in this entire book comes at the end: a full-page artwork entitled "Umbrella Girls" that features Violet, Lucy, and Sally in traditional yukatas sporting oil-paper umbrellas. Never thought I'd see anything like that, and it's as adorable as it sounds.
Overall, while it can't achieve greatness, it does achieve worthiness. This belongs in your collection.
