Happiness Is A Mean Charles Schultz Mash-Up

Ever since I wrote about my dislike of Peanuts, I've been thinking of -- and searching for -- Happiness Is A Warm Puppy.

My sister had this book when we were young girls. At one point, likely during a family car trip when we were suffering from some sibling-induced variant of road-rage, a page was ripped. Not out of the book, but clean in half -- horizontally, so that the page remained securely bound. Soon we discovered that with the way the book was designed, we could do this with all the pages, therefore mix & matching characters' bodies -- and the text on the pages. It was like a very primitive mash-up.

That was the one true joy Charles Schultz brought me.

Like Schultz said, "Happiness is one thing to one person and another thing to another person."

I've had no luck finding the book, and given my uncanny ability to visualize the last place I've seen something, I fear it was pitched long ago.

But right now, I'm craving that book.

Perhaps I'll need to buy a copy, tear the pages, and present it to my sister at one of the many family holiday gatherings. We'll share a memory. And more than one giggle.
