Dream big: the new Peanuts animated movie features Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace—see where it all began in this all-ages gift book collection of Schulz's newspaper strip!
Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron collects all of Schulz's beloved strips starring Snoopy as the famous World War I flying ace in his perennial battles with the infamous Red Baron of Germany.
"Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more / the bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score / Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree / of the bloody Red Baron of Germany...In the nick of time, a hero arose / A funny-looking dog with a big black nose"
Including both dailies and Sundays, Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron follows the valiant and indefatigable Snoopy as, time after time in his doghouse/Sopwith Camel, he braves the wrath of his unseen aerial foe. The brave little beagle's epic battles are brought to thrilling cartoon life.
"He flew into the sky to seek revenge / But the Baron shot him down / "Curses, foiled again!"
The Snoopy and Red Baron encounters were some of the most inspired—and most popular—episodes in all of Peanuts and among the stories most beloved by children and adults alike.

“...[T]here’s something joyful and pure about Schulz’s excursions into the inner life of an anthropomorphized dog, who really is a perfect foil for the permanently disappointed Charlie Brown, and brings necessary shades to a comic frequently concerned with feelings of insignificance. In Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron, you see Schulz exalting the power of imagination, self-assuredness, and hope...” — John Parker - ComicsAlliance
