Whenever I pass by a charity shop, I have to stop. I just have to. It's the lure of these orphaned vintage books that I can't resist. I know I will absolutely be able to rescue at least one and give it a good home. Happy Hoard is a new weekly series where I share with you the treasures I find most weekends while 'just passing by' a charity shop.This week, I was lucky enough to find this gem: You are a winner, Charlie Brown. I love Charlie Brown and his pals (who doesn't?!), my favourite being Linus who I just want to hug. I wondered whether, like with any childhood heroes, they may have aged a bit.
But not at all. Still funny and poignant over 40 years later, whether you are a grown-up or a kid.
My favourite quote: "I love mankind, it’s people I can’t stand!" Linus. You are a winner, Charlie Brown by Charles M.Schultz. Published in 1967. Coronet Books.
