More About Charles M. Schulz
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.

BRINGS BACK MEMORIES Sep 1, 2007
How my ratings work: 5 - I really liked/loved it 4 - I liked it 3 - Could've been better/worth a look 2 - Just didn't live up to the potential 1 - Simply aweful
I first read this when I was 8 years old at my school library. I've been a fan of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang since I first saw the cartoons (it was before I could read that I saw the cartoons) and read the comics whenever I could. Peanuts is a timeless classic, since it gives no specific time and place, it just shows kids being kids. I don't own a copy of this book yet, and I haven't read it in so long, but I'll never forget it. It's simple (like all peanuts stories), but also incredibly touching (so not so simple), as the title says Charlie Brown wants all the friends he can get. Everyone can relate to that, I'm so greatful for the friends I have. So I can't wait to get my copy of this and read it again.
