Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-Charlie Brown and friends are as geometric in form as they are symbolic in character. In this new, full-color collection, variations on a variety of universal themes are delightfully grouped. Snoopy as writer, pilot, sports hound, and all-around cool dog shares the spotlight with his pals. Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Sally, Woodstock, and Schroeder lope through a series of adventures that will be identifiable and humorous to young adults, and maybe even inspiration for budding cartoonists.

From the Inside Flap

GOOD GRIEF!

Life isn?t always easy for Charlie Brown. Between that pesky kite-eating tree, a complete lack of valentines in the mailbox, and his troubles on the pitcher?s mound it can be downright disheartening! Fortunately he has Snoopy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, and the Peanuts gang to make the big world seem a lot friendlier. Now, for the first time in book form and in full-color, It?s a Big World, Charlie Brown presents a brand-new collection of your old favorites. It?s just like peanuts?nobody can read just one!

More About the Author

Charles M. Schulz was born November 25, 1922 in Minneapolis. His destiny was foreshadowed when an uncle gave him, at the age of two days, the nickname Sparky (after the racehorse Spark Plug in the newspaper strip Barney Google).

In his senior year in high school, his mother noticed an ad in a local newspaper for a correspondence school, Federal Schools (later called Art Instruction Schools). Schulz passed the talent test, completed the course and began trying, unsuccessfully, to sell gag cartoons to magazines. (His first published drawing was of his dog, Spike, and appeared in a 1937 Ripley's Believe It Or Not! installment.) Between 1948 and 1950, he succeeded in selling 17 cartoons to the Saturday Evening Post--as well as, to the local St. Paul Pioneer Press, a weekly comic feature called Li'l Folks. It was run in the women's section and paid $10 a week. After writing and drawing the feature for two years, Schulz asked for a better location in the paper or for daily exposure, as well as a raise. When he was turned down on all three counts, he quit.

He started submitting strips to the newspaper syndicates. In the spring of 1950, he received a letter from the United Feature Syndicate, announcing their interest in his submission, Li'l Folks. Schulz boarded a train in June for New York City; more interested in doing a strip than a panel, he also brought along the first installments of what would become Peanuts--and that was what sold. (The title, which Schulz loathed to his dying day, was imposed by the syndicate). The first Peanuts daily appeared October 2, 1950; the first Sunday, January 6, 1952.

Diagnosed with cancer, Schulz retired from Peanuts at the end of 1999. He died on February 13, 2000, the day before Valentine's Day--and the day before his last strip was published--having completed 17,897 daily and Sunday strips, each and every one fully written, drawn, and lettered entirely by his own hand--an unmatched achievement in comics.

Format: Paperback
All of Sparky's strip from 1997 in full color! Plus 2 from 1996 as an added bonus.
Included are strips where: Rerun gets suspended from kindergarden *twice!, the Literary Ace geting help from Lucy, a look at Valley Forge and WWI, Olaf and Andy's quest for Spike, Charlie Brown getting a love leter...
Let's face it: Charles 'Sparky' Schulz was great. This book belongs in any fan's collection.

Format: Paperback
One the best books with Charlie Brown's failures, Rerun's attempts at getting away from school, Snoopy's encounters with General Washington at Valley Forge. Its a good collectible. One of the best peanuts books. Although its like Peanuts 2000, only 2 or 3 strips are the same.

We bought this for my son's 8th birthday. Comics are great for travel in
the car. We hear him laughing while reading Charlie Brown in the back seat of our car, he loves it!

What could be better than Peanuts comics? This book is great, full of the comic strips. A fun read that doesn't need to be read all in the same sitting. =)
