Celebrate Christmas with Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang in this gorgeous retelling of the beloved Christmas special!
Christmas is almost here, which means ice-skating, Christmas carols, and sparkly lights everywhere—even on Snoopy’s doghouse! Everyone is enjoying the holiday celebrations except Charlie Brown. Can the Peanuts gang help Charlie Brown discover the true meaning of Christmas?

This abbreviated version of the holiday cartoon, beloved to nostalgic adults and kids alike, gets the pop-up treatment. All the key elements are here: Charlie Brown's rescue of the scraggliest tree on the lot; Linus's monologue about the true meaning of Christmas, and a closing chorus of "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." The paper construction (Snoopy sends Charlie Brown tumbling in an early scene; later, Charlie Brown spins as he calls for quiet on the set) is nifty, though matching the magic of the original is a tall order. Ages 4 8.
