Published two years after Schulz's very successful 'little classic books' Happiness is a Warm Puppy and Security is a Thumb and a Blanket, I Need All The Friends I can get is a charming addition to the Peanuts series. Dr. Robert H. Reardon said of Schulz, "Into a jungle of impossible heroes, sick jokes, violence and crime sometimes known as the 'funnies', he has brought the delightful humor of children who often speak in overtones which register in the mind and in the heart."
