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.

I love this book and can happily read away and enjoy myself with this quite easily, but my close up vision is very good (shame I can't say the same for distance), but if you have eye troubles you may not be able to read the text, as it is a bit on the small side, and as I discovered there is no formatting to help you enlarge the text on a tablet device.
As this is currently on promo I would say go for it and download it, it isn't going to cost you anything. But when this goes back to normal price I would strongly advise people to think hard about whether to get this ebook edition, as you would probably be better off buying the treebook version. Alas, not everything is perfect with ebook editions of books and this is an example of the problems that do occur.
I hope this has been of help to people, and to all a Merry Christmas.
If you are like me, you have watched and enjoyed A Charlie Brown Christmas many times since it premiered in 1965. Now, you can have this experience every day with this remarkable keepsake album. Everything about the book is first-class and a joy. Do be kind to your family and friends who like Peanuts and give them this book.
After you read and reread this book, I suggest you sit back and plan for how you can have the kind of Christmas that Charles Schulz wanted to encourage with this story. That will be the best benefit of all.
May you always find and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas!
Sadly once it was downloaded, it was unreadable on my original kindle. The words were way too small and so you couldn't read it at all. Maybe those with more up to date kindles and devices wouldn't have this problem.
But nothing lost, it's a fee download.
I know it was free, but it's absolutely useless.
If you love Charlie Brown, don't even think twice - just click buy!
