What’s the Big Idea, Charlie Brown?

Publisher: Little Patriot Press • 2014 • 40 pages

What’s the Big Idea, Charlie Brown? is a children’s picturebook in which characters from the classic “Peanuts” comic strip learn about great American inventions that changed the world. It begins with all the kids deciding that they would celebrate the forthcoming Saturday as Big Idea Day. “Lucy wanted to have a party. Linus and Sally wanted to celebrate the great inventors they had been learning about in school. Marcie wanted posters. Peppermint Patty wanted prizes. Schroeder wanted – what else? – music…” Each person puts together a presentation about a different great idea that revolutionized everyday life, including the light bulb, the telephone, and the automobile… but Charlie Brown can’t think of anything! Will Charlie Brown be able to come up with an idea of his own for the big celebration? Although most of What’s the Big Idea, Charlie Brown? is storytelling in a manner faithful to Charles widely beloved characters, the last few pages are devoted to more historical details about the featured great inventions, making What’s the Big Idea, Charlie Brown? educational as well as entertaining. Highly recommended.
