Back Cover Summary
The songs are irresistible. And so is the dog!
Take a bow and leave us the wow, Snoopy! You're the Big Bow Wow, the top dog, the star among stars (sorry, Charlie Brown) of Snoopy The Musical, a song-filled, gag-packed, dog's-eye view of the Peanuts pals. Day in and day out, everyone's favorite beagle looks upon the world from atop his doghouse. It's usually a sit-up, lie-down, roll-over, play-dead world. Snoopy, however, is not your usual dog. Enough stupid dog tricks! This precocious pooch wants to kick up his paws and dance, go to school, write the world's greatest novel, play shortstop, hang out with that round-headed kid, see faces in the clouds, gaze at stars and much more. Whatever, this dog wants to do, he does!
