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 came across this on promo and just had to download it, and thus I feel that I should warn people about this. I will admit that I haven't had a chance to look at this on my Kindle as the device is full at the moment and I will have to make space to download it, so instead I read this on my iPad. The sample that you can view on this site isn't for this actual ebook edition, and so when I opened the book up I instantly found that this was in landscape mode; picture on one side, text on the other. If it appears the same way on the standard Kindle e-reader then there will be no way that you will be able to read the text.

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.

In the television show, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Charlie Brown searches for the true meaning of Christmas and helps infuse it into all the Peanuts gang. Like many people, he's a little down in the dumps over the upcoming holiday season, but with his good heart he soon finds a way to seek out Christmas in his own way by getting a real tree rather than the artificial one that Lucy sent him for.
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!

The square page format is doubled and rotated to fit on the kindle screen. The writing is so indistinct as to be illegible unless magnification is used, which is not formatted for kindle. I haven't checked to see if the original is in .pdf rather than Kindle format, but it behaves that way. OK, it was a free download but given how bothersome it is to read, it would be robbery to charge for it. It's a great pity, as Charlie Brown at Christmas could have been fun :(

I ordered this free book because I was a big Peanuts fan as a kid.

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'm sure the content is probably great but it's totally unreadable on my Kindle Touch. It displays landscape, two pages to view. The option to change the font is greyed out. It can be stretched in a kind of pinched finger action (as you'd do on a tablet) but the font is then like a very poor photocopy.
I know it was free, but it's absolutely useless.

I would have given it 5 stars for the really lovely, heartwarming Christmassy content (what more would you expect from a Charlie Brown Christmas?), but as others have noted the Kindle formatting lets it down. It is readable, with a bit of perseverance, and the cartoons are visible, but that's about all. Shame, really.

I have always loved Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Co and this little Christmas book will help make the Christmas season that little bit more special for its nostalgia value.
If you love Charlie Brown, don't even think twice - just click buy!

Great a free book featuring a favorite character. Disappointing though as the pages are awkward to read on a Kindle Fire when shown with a picture. A nice idea but mabe for the big screen if you want to see pics and read the text without squinting.
