“It’s good to have a friend.”
Everyone loves Peanuts! And now to celebrate the sixty-fifth anniversary of characters known around the world comes Peanuts: Friends Forever, an original collection of full-color comic strips featuring the whole gang. Charlie Brown ponders Life. Linus waits up all night for the Great Pumpkin. Peppermint Patty tries (and fails) to whip the baseball team into shape. Lucy proves time and again that she cannot be trusted with a football. Through ups and down, these beloved friends remind us why Charles M. Schulz’s cherished creation remains the most popular comic series of all time.

About the Author
Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on November 26, 1922, Charles Schulz was drafted into the army in 1943 and soon embarked for Europe and the fight against Germany. He then went on to teach at Art Instruction, where he worked with Charlie Brown and Linus, who later lent their names to the comic strips. In 1950, after many mailbox rejections, Schulz boarded a train from St. Paul to New York with a handful of drawings. On October 2 of that year, Peanuts, named by United Features Syndicate, debuted in seven newspapers.
On February 12, 2000, Charles Schulz died in Santa Rosa, California. It was only hours before his last original strip was to appear in Sunday papers.
