Format: Paperback
Christmas is here, and Lucy and Linus's younger brother Rerun wants nothing more than a dog of his own for the holiday. One who will play with him, and keep him company when there's no one else around. Rerun knows that he can't have Snoopy. After all, Snoopy is Charlie Brown's dog. So he asks Snoopy's brother Spike to stay with him. Rerun is having a fantastic time with Spike, until his Mother, who thinks dogs are too dirty, tells Spike to go back home to the desert. Now Rerun just knows that his Christmas is over. After all, Christmas is boring if you don't get the present that you truly want.

Charles M. Schulz has done an amazing job with I WANT A DOG FOR CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN! for he has incorporated Rerun into the Peanuts gang, a character who has not been seen in past comic strips. The story is sweet, and teaches about the true meaning of Christmas, while the illustrations are wonderful, and show the Peanuts gang doing all kinds of fun things in celebration of Christmas. Overall this is a wonderful new holiday story to add to the Peanuts collection that will be loved by children, as well as their parents who will remember Charlie Brown from when they were children.

Format: Paperback
The original Charles Schulz would roll over in his grave if he saw how they have butchered his beloved "Peanuts" gang. This was painful to watch and, more importantly, it teaches children bad lessons, i.e. when rerun throws his shoe at a dog and calls him a stupid dog, which he admits that he is "running out of shoes" (because he does this all the time), when they just leave Spike on the side of the road when they decide they don't want him anymore...there were so many more incidents like these and these are certainly not things we want to teach to children. The plot, or lack thereof, and poor dialogue is also confusing to children...and adults alike. Please spend your money elsewhere.
