The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 6: 1961-1962 by Charles M. Schulz

The progress of Peanuts.

Lucy opens the volume stealing Linus's blanket to break him of it, and subjects it to some other abuse over the two years. Snoopy is a stalwart sea captain, and associates with some birds, unindividuated. Baseball goes badly -- more than once, everyone quits. Frieda appears, with her naturally curly hair and insistence that Snoopy should hunt rabbits -- and she gets a cat. Linus gets glasses and preaches the Great Pumpkin. Sally panics about kindergarten. The little red-haired girl gets a single mention.
