Life isn’t always easy for Charlie Brown. Between that pesky kite-eating tree, a complete lack of valentines in the mailbox, and his troubles on the pitcher’s mound it can be downright disheartening! Fortunately he has Snoopy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, and the Peanuts gang to make the big world seem a lot friendlier. Now, for the first time in book form and in full-color, It’s a Big World, Charlie Brown presents a brand-new collection of your old favorites. It’s just like peanuts–nobody can read just one!
Charles M. Schulz was born in 1922 in Minneapolis, the only child of a housewife and a barber. His interest in comics was encouraged by his father, who loved the funny pages. After army duty, Schulz lettered comic pages for Timeless Topix, and sold seventeen cartoons to The Saturday Evening Post from 1948 to 1950 and a feature, Li'l Folks, to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Peanuts debuted on October 2, 1950, and ran without interruption for the next fifty years. Schulz died on February 12, 2000, and his last strip ran the next day. Peanuts has appeared in 2,600 newspapers in seventy-five countries.
