Charles Schulz

Charles Schulz

by Michael A. Schuman




Cartoonist Charles Schulz died in 2000 but his work is as alive as ever. His Peanuts comic strip continues to run in newspapers around the world; the classic television specials starring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the gang are aired annually; and somewhere at this moment a high school drama club is performing the stage play You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Follow the story of a shy, awkward teenager who didn't excel at academics or sports but followed his love of drawing to create some of the most beloved and iconic characters in modern history.
