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.

A cute book to take you back to childhood! Also makes a great gift book to someone. It is a combination of all the books so a better deal than trying to buy them all separately!!

I did not own one of the happiness books when I was a kid but I did look at my friends' books. I never forgot the brightly colored pages or the smell of the ink.

Here are 8 of them published in one cover, as bright as ever and yes the ink smells the same.

A great nostalgia item for the Peanuts fan.

Even though this book has a very youthful feel to it, I would recommend this book anyone who enjoys quotes, likes to inspire others with their words or has a child with whom they'd like to read this book.

Great for those learning how to read.

Having all of these little books crammed into one volume made for a very small but very fat book that is really unwieldy, difficult to hold and read, especially for kids. I would have preferred them all be in separate little books.

This has many of the books I remember as a kid, and it's nice to be able to get them all in one anthology. It is, however, thick and a tad difficult to hold and flip through. Well worth the price though!

This is an excellent example of the work done by Charles M. Schulz. I feel that this is only a slight example of Schulz's work. A book with all eight of his happiness stories is amazing. A book with just one of Schulz' happiness stories is a work of art, but a book with all eight happiness stories really beautiful. Superb!!
