Will they never learn? Sibling rivalries. Overzealous hall monitors. Un-kicked footballs. It's the Peanuts gang you know and love, and everyone's at it again. Lucy is offering her trademark 5 cent psychiatric advice--and her customers are wondering if it's actually worth the pennies. Snoopy's dinner bowl has been thrown deep into enemy territory--and he will do anything to avoid retrieving it from the neighbor's cat. Finally, our hero must work alongside the little red-haired girl, his secret crush, for a school project...can you guess how that will turn out? You'll find old tricks and new antics in this latest collection of the world-renowned comics. First published in 1950, the classic Peanuts strip now appears in more than 2,200 newspapers in 75 countries in 25 languages. Phrases such as "security blanket" and "good grief," which originated in the Peanuts world, are now part of the global vernacular, and images of Charles Schulz's classic characters--Charlie Brown kicking the football, Lucy leaning over Schroeder's piano--are now universally recognized.

It's All Absolutely Fine is an honest and unapologetic account of day-to-day life as a groaning, crying, laughing sentient potato being for whom things are often absolutely not fine. Through simple, humorous drawings and a few short narratives, the book encompasses everything from mood disorders, anxiety, and issues with body image through to existential conversations with dogs and some unusually articulate birds. With each chapter a particular set of struggles is picked up, looked at, and squished about a bit using visuals before being put down again with a little more resolve. Problems related to mental health that can be very devastating and even isolating are discussed openly in a way people are often told not to, but this is as much a book about the human emotional experience that touches all of us as it is about mental health. Through the drawings, the reader is shown that it is okay to struggle, and that it is okay to talk about struggling, to not undermine oneself by yelling 'it's fine' when it isn't, and while all this is going on to know that it is absolutely possible to hold on to hope, and of course humor. Building on Rubyetc's huge online presence, It's All Absolutely Fine includes mostly new material, both written and illustrated, and is inspirational, empowering, and entertaining. Hope and tenacity abound in this book that is as heartening as it is hilarious.
