About 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.

Where would we be without the "Peanuts" books? The stories are as timely today as they were, and have been for decades. Charlie Brown's foibles are something that have happened to us all at one time in our lives. And Snoopy, the always successful man's best friend always adds insult to injury for his long-suffering owner. However, Charlie Brown does come out at least with his head above water. My kids love these books, as I did forty years ago.

I like Charlie Brown but this one was just too depressing for me.

My son is a great lover of all things Peanuts and this was very engaging for him, especially since he's 2 and loves lift the flap books. He requests that I read it alot to him.

Children of all ages love Charlie Brown. This book was no exception. I read it to my granddaughter's kindergarten class and it was a hit and many of the children were already familiar with this book but it did not deter them from hearing it again.
