Nice reproductions of the books. If you loved these gift books in the late 60's or early 70's, it's a treat to see them back in their original form and not colourised or with different artwork as some of the other books that are being sold abroad with the same titles as the books in this set. If you loved Happiness Is a Warm Puppy, you will love the rest of the books in this set. These books, despite what the naysayers expound in the negative reviews on this site, has the heart of Schulz in them unlike a lot of the later books which bear his name and mere re-interpretations of his art.

It's great to see these books surging in popularity again after so many years... and so true to the originals just as I remember them from the 70s! This great set even includes The Peanuts Cookbook, which has been unavailable for more than thirty years.

What a wonderful box set; I'm so happy that I bought it! I even bought a few as gifts for my friends who have loved the Peanuts throughout their lives, like me!

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.
