was the first hardcover book I remember getting as a kid, somewhere
around 1968, 1969. I spent hours reading and re-reading it, losing
myself in the comic misadventures of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, wishing
I could be like Charles Schulz, the strip’s writer and artist. My first
dog, acquired around that same time, was not coincidentally a beagle,
like Snoopy, whom we named Peppy, and I loved that crazy dog. I was so
fond of Peanuts Treasury that
it’s one of the few prized possessions from my misspent youth that
followed me through college, half a dozen adult relocations, and is now
on my daughter’s bookshelf.It’s hard to find anyone who has
anything bad to say about “Peanuts” or Schulz. The strip’s creator
lived and thrived in the pre-Internet age where the world didn’t demand
every detail of a celebrity’s life be preserved and shared. For the
most part, we knew only his good works and the enduring cartoon series
based on them. In his new book, Schulz and Peanuts,
biographer David Michaelis introduces readers to the real cartoonist
behind the daily strip. Michaelis’ previous biographical work includes
a history of painter N. C. Wyeth.(Incidentally, the Schulz family – led by Sparky’s widow, Jean – has aggressively come out against the book they once authorized and with which they cooperated fully.)
