I love the books when they're younger!

I got this book long, long, long ago and it has traveled with me from one place to another through many moves. What can you say about Charles M. Schulz and his creations...funny, sometimes a little sad, always wise...I love Peanuts.

I found this book in a free bin. The back cover is a bit torn, but all the pages are there. I liked it.

Charles Monroe Schulz was an American cartoonist, whose comic strip Peanuts proved one of the most popular and influential in the history of the medium, and is still widely reprinted on a daily basis.
