comic strip first ran, Lucy Van Pelt burst into the popular daily, becoming the high-voltage catalyst to ignite the comedic fire under the lovable members of the original Peanuts
gang. Lucy's take-charge attitude and annoying self-confidence immediately cast her as one of the favorite characters of the strip as well as an unlikely, but powerful, role model for men and women alike.

fans laughing and learning for more than 45 years. Classic strips and special interactive features in each chapter keep the pages turning and the laughs coming. With an introduction by Charles M. Schulz, you'll learn more about the evolution of Lucy's unique personality and how it has changed over the decades. Lucy: Not Just Another Pretty Face

, it is easy to see why she is considered the brains and the beauty of the strip! "That'll be five cents, please!"
