    Author Biography Charles M. Schulz was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1922 and grew up in Saint Paul. He gained a reputation worldwide as a cartoonist for his work on Peanuts. He died in 2000. Lynn Johnston is a Canadian cartoonist, well known for her comic strip For Better of For Worse. She was the first woman and first Canadian to win the National Cartoonist Society's Reuben Award.
    Review Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life -- BILL CLINTON It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does ... at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz * Seattle Times * The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated -- UMBERTO ECO Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz's work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book * Huffington Post * These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment * Sunday Times * All sorts of important writers have marvelled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism ... by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate ... in lavishly appointed hardback ... Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them * Spectator * As essential as pop texts get * The Onion *
