"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
Happy 40th Anniversary, Peanuts Gang!

For parents looking for a funnier, more hilarious way to celebrate Halloween, look for "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: The Making of a Television Classic" a Harper paperback album that celebrates the 40th anniversary of the classic animated show.

How many of us remember the TV show that premiered on October 27, 1966? When trick or treaters visit Linus and Sally in the pumpkin patch and laugh at Lucy's witch mask, it changes from a scowl to a big grin! The show was nominated for 3 Emmy's; the story includes all the "Peanuts" gang.

The book, by executive producer Lee Mendelson, includes original script, 150 illustrations of scenes from the show along with sheet music, commentaries from the child actors who provided the voices for the lovable characters, photos and reminiscences by the animator, Bill Melendez.

Get ready for a real treat! Happy Halloween!!
