Dust jacket
31 October 2003 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

"No book report has ever been finished by just reading the dust jacket."

The history of Charlie Brown is a timeline of things that happened while he was looking the other way. Everyone has that story of how they left the ballgame early and missed the greatest play in sports history. Poor Charlie Brown lives every day like that. You can keep your Willie Loma and John Procter. The greatest tragic hero in American literature is a boy named Charlie Brown.

This is a very good special, and it includes the famous "Pig-Pen" Hoedown scene.
