'Woodstock: Master of Disguise' is a great reprint of strips from Charles Schulz featuring Woodstock. They've been rendered in color, but that just makes them more fun to read.

I've always liked the character of Woodstock. The title of the book is a little misleading since he doesn't always wear a disguise. Except when he's invited to Thanksgiving dinner. Or when he wants to be in Snoopy's beagle scout troop. He also has a bad habit of flying upside down, and into things like trees. He can get lost in snow pretty easy too, since he's so small. He doesn't say much I can understand, but he sure likes to talk a lot.

It's great to see these in reprint, and I think the humor holds up. It's definitely a kinder, gentler, subtler humor from another era. That may or may not play for younger audiences, but as a beloved part of my youth, Peanuts can always make me smile.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this fun ebook.
