More About Charles M. Schulz, Kenneth J. Falconer, Martina Zahle, T. M. Charles Edwards, Jonathan D. Gray, Jim Shooter, Becky Freeman & B. Teissier
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.
Charles M. Schulz lived in Santa Rosa, in the state of California. Charles M. Schulz was born in 1922 and died in 2000.
Reviews - What do customers think about Happiness is a Warm Puppy (Peanuts)?
Brings back very fond memories Nov 6, 2007
I had, and loved, this book as a child. I just bought it to give to my god-daughter. Hadn't seen it in years. Sweet and heartwarming. Brought a smile to my face.
Peanuts - the BEST !! Oct 1, 2007
I;ve followed the Peanuts gang ever since they first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle. This book brings back happy memories of the gang & I'd recommend it to any Peanuts reader as a "must have".
Wonderful Piece of Childhood Mar 31, 2007
It's great to have this book again. I had the first editions of all the small "square hardbacks" in the 60's, but lost them somewhere along the line.
They reflect the simplicity and warmth of PEANUTS in their very format.
Happiness Is a Book By Charles Schulz!
Happiness is these reproductions! Mar 26, 2007
I thank whoever reproduced these little gems!!! I owned this in elementary school and saw it featured in a woman's magazine and flipped! This book is still as great today as it was then. I bought one for my neighbor's grandaughter and she loves it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
A gem from the past Mar 23, 2005
I too loved this book as a child. The simple repetetive text helps the reader find simple pleasures in everyday life. I am a teacher now and I have been searching for this book to use with my kindergarteners. I searched in the local libraries to no avail. Of the numerous books I possessed as a child, only two stand out in my memory. One is Happiness is a Warm Puppy and the other, Never Tease a Weasel. For a children's book to make such a lasting impression on so many people is remarkable. It is a shame it can't be put back in print for another generation to enjoy.
