Summary

Charles M. Schulz and his beloved comic strip,Peanuts, have changed the world. InSecurity Blankets, Fraser and Bang present a heartwarming collection of 51 touching true stories to show the connection people have with the adored cartoon. Stories, photos from the contributors, andPeanutsartwork make this work extra special. The connections are so strong they've even had the power to change people's lives.Take, for example, the Vietnam POW; whose first piece of correspondence while in captivity was a Snoopy card that included a picture of his wife and children. Or the 5-year-old boy from Boston who demanded that his stuffed Snoopy accompany him to the hospital for a high-risk surgery. Connections such as these show howPeanutshas become a security blanket for thousands.This is chicken soup for thePeanutslover's soul.Excerpt from the book:"But what made this drawing different was the unique "countdown calendar" that my father had drawn on Snoopy's belly. Each square on the calendar, which my sisters and I would cross out, meant that our dad was one day closer to coming home. Every time a square was marked off that drawing, Snoopy brought a bit of happiness and security to a war-weary and scared ten-year-old girl who desperately missed her Daddy.Did Snoopy help bring my father safely home from the Vietnam War? Maybe, maybe not. But to this day, whenever I see Snoopy--especially when he's performing his happy dance--my heart is grateful and filled with loving memories of my Dad.
