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.

Perhaps this is user error, but I ordered this for my 5 year old who loves Charlie brown.

Snoopy makes a music box out of paper, while Sally makes a diamond and a club, and Charlie Brown watches his "something that is very nice" fall apart.
Mark Melville
Was totally shocked when I opened the package and found a book the size of a post it note.

Amazon does not warn the buyer that this book is approximately two inches in size! way too small!!! extremely overpriced - almost $5.00 for a book that I could turn into a Christmas tree ornament! a BIG disappointment!

Perhaps this is user error, but I ordered this for my 5 year old who loves Charlie brown. I failed to read the description, but this is a mini-book. There is no easy way to read this. I would have never purchased this if I had know. Read the description before buying, it's probably not what you want.

Pretty much the same as the special,(except for the Pawpet Show),
Charlie Brown waits for valentines with pie in the sky hopes. Snoopy makes a music box out of paper, while Sally makes a diamond and a club, and Charlie Brown watches his "something that is very nice" fall apart.

Was totally shocked when I opened the package and found a book the size of a post it note. Truly, it was no larger than
3" x 3" . No indication that it was going to be that small.

Great mini book. The few low star reviews are from brain-challenged folks that couldn't figure out what the book was and they marked down the product, not their review skills . . . go figure.

Our 3rd grandchild is due on Valentine's day! Our daughter has always loved Snoopy and has built her nursery around the 'Snoopy' theme. So instead of a gift card, at her baby shower we encouraged people to give a book to start the baby's library. I could not miss giving this "Be My Valentine Charlie Brown" book to my newest grandchild! I have always been impressed with books purchased through Amazon! Delivery was quick. Both of our children are avid readers and this is a great start for the future library of grandchild #3.

If you have a Charlie Brown fan in your life, you should get this. My 2 year old daughter is so in love with Charlie Brown and the gang and especially with this book. She sleeps with it at night even. Granted, this is kind of an extreme example, but just goes to show how charming it is. I will say there's a weird leap in the storytelling at one point that makes me wonder if we got a misprint but more likely, it's just more Peanuts absurdism fun.

Absolutely adorable. I love Charlie Brown and so does my 18 month old son. We read it all the time. The book is bigger than I expected. Would recommend it for older kids, because it is a lift the flap book.
