    I am enjoying playing the "Peanuts Illustrated Songbook", it brings back memories of watching the Charilie Brown seasonal specials. If you are a Peanuts fan, you will enjoy purchasing this book.

  • October 13, 2010 Great book... but

    Most of the songs are good arrangements, but the version of Linus and Lucy is missing the middle "boss nova" part. Luckily I have the seperate sheet music with the complete version in it.

    Does anyone know of a 'snoopy' songbook that comes with a cd. I can play from ear and notes, but I am limited with actual timing. Thank you.

  • May 05, 2009 Great Book!

    I was looking for a book that had a good rendition of "Linus and Lucy". I not only got that, but a whole bunch of other great songs that I recognized from the Peanuts specials. I was eager to buy it, but some of the reviews that bashed the glossy...

    pages and thick binding scared me off. I ordered it anyways, and it is great! Don't let the binding thing scare you, two nice heavy books will do just fine. Very good piano book.

    This book is good if you are just learning Guaraldi's songs. But it is missing most of his piano solos and it cuts some parts out of a few of the songs, like the first solo of Linus & Lucy. But it gets the basic tune.
