Product Description

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." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A Book of Quotes 3 Aug 2007
By J. Franz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is not a book of Strips. It is really a book of quotes sorted by subject matter... this could almost be made into Hallmark cards
For example the subject is Effort and the quote is Some of my best school papers have been written before breakfast.......Sally Brown
and on the opposing page is her examining her written work
The book is 128 pages
Probably one thing I was able to enjoy a little more in this book is Charles Schulz's artwork Like a close-up of Charlie Brown looking into an empty mailbox
And Charlie Brown laying flat on his back with circles around his head
Just little things like that.....
I did enjoy this book I gave it three stars cause I was disappointed it wasn't a book of strips, I like the new way they have of sorting the strips for us Baseball, other sports, School and of course Love and I thought this was another one.....
Maybe it didn't get four stars cause it was done too soon One quote a page You feel like a speed reader.

Peanuts Guide To Life by Charles M Schulz 29 Mar 2010
By mellieb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an adorable little book! "Adorable" being the positive, and "little" being my only disappointment. I just love Charles Schulz so darn much, that I was hoping it was a huge book with lots and lots of pages. Still worth buying, most definitely.

A Little Pick-Me-Up 11 Mar 2009
By Brianna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I love the Peanuts characters, so anything that has to do with them I have it. This book is a great pick-me-up for when you've had a bad day or just need a Peanuts fix. I recommend this book for any Peanuts fan or someone who wants a little joy in their life. The Peanuts gang offers some enjoyable insight on various topics.

Brief but powerful...kinda 26 Feb 2008
By Just_Radar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love Peanuts. This is a brief collection of one-frame wisdoms. Thought-provoking. Don't have too high expectations, but it is still enjoyable.
