About the Author

Charles M. Schulz was born in 1922 in Minneapolis, the only child of a housewife and a barber. His interest in comics was encouraged by his father, who loved the funny pages. After army duty, Schulz lettered comic pages for Timeless Topix, and sold seventeen cartoons to The Saturday Evening Post from 1948 to 1950 and a feature, Li'l Folks, to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Peanuts debuted on October 2, 1950, and ran without interruption for the next fifty years. Schulz died on February 12, 2000, and his last strip ran the next day. Peanuts has appeared in 2,600 newspapers in seventy-five countries.


Adult/High School-The story of a great American cartoonist's artistic development and a beautiful example of book production. Vintage drawings of Schulz's work from his army days, Roman Catholic publications, and early "Lil Folks" panels are photographed from the original strips and archival collections, both black and white and in color, yellowed with age and showing marks of tape. The result is like browsing through an old-fashioned family album. It is fun to ponder the development of Lucy, a good-natured baby in the earliest strips, and to find one photo of Charlie Brown's unrequited love for the Little Red Haired Girl. An introduction by the artist's wife, commentary from the photographer, and excerpts from Schulz's letters and those from friends and fans give an in-depth look into the man's artistic technique as well as his personality. This collection will be treasured by cartoonists and "Peanuts" fans. It will also appeal to the occasional funny-page reader and students of American culture, who will gain an appreciation of Schulz's remarkable insight into the American psyche.-Jackie Gropman, Kings Park Library, Burke, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
