In this volume, Peanuts celebrates its 40th birthday! Snoopy and Spike decline to compete in an ugly dog competition, entering their brother Olaf instead. Charlie Brown and Marcie spend quality time together at sleepaway camp, while Peppermint Patty simmers in summer school. Linus ramps up his Great Pumpkin proselytising with the 'Great Pumpkin Movement' - complete with literature to pass out door to door. Marcie begins to crack under the pressure of being a good student. Charlie Brown even gets the girl - but she thinks his name is Brownie Charles!
