As a whole, once the small stories become connected to the main, you learn the valuable lesson in narrow mindedness or narrow vision. The characters seeing Linus' imperfection, but failing to see their own. That in the end they all have something they need for comfort against anxiety and fear, something we rely on for contemplation, decision making, and happiness. As we age, these items, or people, may change, but we always need something to provide that comfort. These items, or people, help us to be ourselves, to be vulnerable, to be human.
Wonderfully illustrated, as usual, with comedy interspersed within the grand lesson. The best parts being those with Snoopy trying to steal the blanket out from under Linus' nose, always resulting in chaos. Fun read, which I recommend for both young and old alike.
