I grew up loving peanuts! I always was routing for Charlie Brown and his blockhead! I could relate to Charlie. I had a lot of insecurities and felt down and out of place on many levels! Reading peanuts always gave me great comfort and happiness as a child. Today reading the old books and anything with Charlie, Snoopy, Woodstock ,Lucy (who I totally loved!) , Schroeder , Linus (loved his security blanket) I could relate I had a security item of my own! All the characters warmed my heart and I wil ...more

‘Celebrating Peanuts: 60 Years’ features a wonderful collection of the Peanuts’ comics which are arranged by decade. In addition, there’s plenty of information about Schulz’s career as well as numerous quotes by the late creator of this well-loved comic strip.

Needless to say, I enjoyed all the comic strips which truly showed Schulz’s talent not just in terms of his distinctive artwork but his creative thought process too. Seeing how the characters’ appearances gradually changed from one decade t

This is an excellent book, with every strip rendered on glossy paper that shows off its artistry. The only reason I don't give this book 5 stars is because it's a "Greatest Hits" book. If you, like me, are collecting the "Complete Collection" of Peanuts from Fantagraphic Publishers, then you don't really need this book as the only thing in it that isn't in the complete collection are some colored Sunday strips (as opposed to the B&W versions of the Fantagraphics books). There are some quotes ...more

This massive 60th Anniversary collection celebrates Charles Schulz's beloved comic strip, "Peanuts," through the years from its inception in 1950 until the final strip in February 2000, including both black-and-white and color strips. The book is divided into sections by decade, and at the beginning of each new section is an overview of the decade.Quotations from Schulz pepper the pages throughout. Peanuts fans will take special delight in this unique book, the only downsides of which are the su ...more

I so love having this book! I took it from the library one rainy Sunday afternoon and had such a wonderful walk down memory lane that I added it to my Amazon WishList. My hubbie got it for me for Christmas and I just keep going through it. I am such an absolute fanatic for Lucy and her psychiatric help booth that on other sites, she is my avatar. This is an absolute must have for die-hard Peanuts fans.

What fun it was to revisit the fabulous Peanuts Gang-from the 50's through the 00's-a joyous ride through the brilliance of Charles Schulz's mind. Great insight into the author, and revelations about the characters and the story lines (yes-story lines!), really enhanced the reading of the comic strips. He truly was brilliant!

I absolutely adore Peanuts! This collection comic strips is especially fun because of all the extra history and quotes from Charles Schulz included with the cartoons. It is really interesting to see how the strip developed over the decades. This is a great collection for the hard-core fans of Charlie Brown and Co.

Beautifully presented, with the Sundays reproduced in full colour, this hefty hardcover exemplifies the droll brilliance of Schulz, devoting 100+ large, glossy pages each to the five decades in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang ruled the world of comic strips.

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.

Schulz's first regular cartoons, Li'l Folks, were published from 1947 to 1950 by the St. Paul Pioneer Press; he first used the name Charlie Brown for a character there, although he applied the name in
