In this timeless classic, the Peanuts gang face the serious sickness of a good friend with all the sensitivity, caring and warmth that is the trademark of Charles Schulz's work. Why Charlie Brown Why? is a heartwarming story of a child dealing with great challenges and profound questions. When young Janice is diagnosed with leukaemia, Charlie Brown looks for answers, Linus becomes her protector, Lucy doesn't understand, Snoopy dons his "World's Greatest Surgeon" togs and the whole gang does some soul-searching. In his own inimitable style, Charles Schulz brings this touching tale to life. With charm and compassion, he tells of the effect of Janice's illness on her family, her classmates and, of course, her friends.
