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.

I bought this book for my husband for Christmas. He is Snoopy fan, but not a Peanuts fan. That makes this so great because it is all about Snoopy. The others in the gang are there but they are second fiddle to him. My husband loved the book. It is all cartoons about Snoopy. I especially liked the fancy "Snoopy Paper" that was thrown in here and their. Since the cartoons are black and white, the paper adds a touch of color to the book. I would recomend this book to any Snoopy fan!

Format: Paperback
Nice, thick volume with tons of Snoopy cartoons. Although the book is called the "Many" faces of Snoopy, it's actually divided into just five sections: Joe Cool, the Attorney, the World War I Flying Ace (the biggest section, of course), Beagle Scout and Writing Ace. Still, even only looking at those five facets of Snoopy's multi-layered personality packs this book with over 300 pages of cartoons from throughout the 50-year run of Peanuts. Definitely worth getting for the Snoopy fan.

I bought this book, The Many Faces Of Snoopy, for my 10 year old great nephew for Christmas. Since he lives in New York I wasn't there to see him open it. However, I was told that he opened it first, started reading it aloud to his Mother and Grandmother, and wasn't interested in opening any other gifts until he had finished reading the entire book. I would highly recommend this book for any Snoopy fan.

Format: Paperback
If you like snoopy you NEED this book. It provides some excellent sketches from 5 of snoopys best loved personalities. It dosen't deal with all his alter egos but is still a great read. The book is well presented and superb value at under 12 dollars. This book is not just for kids. I myself am a 32 year year old school teacher and I found this book highly entertaining. If you are a snoopy fan order it today....

My 8 year old son is reading this book (over and over) from the library and he has been laughing out loud. He loves that it shows the different snoopys and he knows all the birds names. I'm buying it tonight.
