Meet the Author

Charles Monroe Schulz (1922 -2000) was a 20th-century American cartoonist best known for his Peanuts comic strip. He was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, to Dena and Carl Schulz. His nickname "Sparky" was given by his uncle, after the horse Spark Plug in the Barney Google comic strip. He attended St. Paul's Richard Gordon Elementary School, where he skipped two half-grades. As a result, he was the youngest in his class when he attended St. Paul Central High years later, which may have been the reason why he was so shy and isolated as a young teenager. After his mother died in February, 1943, he was drafted into the army and sent to Camp Campbell in Kentucky. He was then shipped to Europe two years later to fight in World War II. After leaving the United States Army in 1945, he took a job as an art teacher at Art Instruction Inc., which he attended before he was drafted. First published by Robert Ripley in his Ripley's Believe It or Not!, then in a series of chronicles, The Saturday Evening Post, his first regular comic strip, Li'l Folks was published in 1947 by the St. Paul Pioneer Press. (It was in this strip that Charlie Brown first appeared, as well as a dog that looked much like Snoopy). In 1950 he approached the United Features Syndicate with his best strips from Li'l Folks, and Peanuts made its first appearance on October 2, 1950. This strip became one of the most popular comic strips of all time. He also had a short-lived sports-oriented comic strip called It's Only a Game (1957-1959), but abandoned that strip due to the demands of the success of Peanuts.

I purchased this product today for my Nook Color only to learn that this book can only be read on a Nook Tablet or an iPad with a special app. Nowhere in the description does it say this book will not work on a Nook Color. Do not buy this product if you do not have a Nook Tablet or an iPad. Very disappointed that the product description does not specify that you cannot use this product with the Color Nook. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with customer service before someone was finally able to tell me why the book was not showing up in my Nook library.

I bought this for the Nook Tablet- there was nothing in the listing saying what it was compatible with or not and I read the previous review by IslandGirlBR that said she bought for the Color and was told it was only for Tablet. Guess what?! After spending 25+ minutes with customer service, I was told it is only for the Color and not the Tablet. Seriously, they need to get this figured out. Not really sure why there is such a difference in what is allowed between all the different Nooks, except that it seems like they want you to continually buy a newer version of the Nook when there is nothing wrong with the ones we have. FRUSTRATED!!!
