Snoopy: Boogie Down is a collection of veteran Peanuts strips marketed to the middle grades.
It’s not just Snoopy. All the gang is here: Charlie Brown, Lucy, Sally, Peppermint Patty and even Snoopy’s brother Spike at the way from Needles. The comics were selected to appeal to the middle grades by emphasizing sports, school, summer camp and pets. Older adults may have to explain some of the celebrity references like Farrah Fawcett and even what the word “Boogie” means. However, even older readers will enjoy this trip down Memory Lane.
Snoopy: Boogie Down is recommended for anyone looking for a humorous reflection on life’s ironies. 4 stars!
Thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for an advance copy.
