Reviews

'Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life' -- BILL CLINTON

'Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher ... But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life' -- JOHN WATERS

'The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated' -- UMBERTO ECO

'Charles M. Schulz, one of the greatest cartoonists of our time, was an expert of this creative art. From his creative genius came a comic strip that was simply called Peanuts, which touched the lives of many of its readers, including my own. We are all the richer for the view of the world as seen through the eyes of the Peanuts characters' -- BILL COSBY

'The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child ...' TIME

'Charles Schulz's brilliant, angst-ridden, truly funny, fifty-year-long masterpiece of joy and heartbreak' -- MATT GROENING

'Snoopy: the protean trickster whose freedom is founded on his confidence that he's lovable at heart, the quick-change artist who, for the sheer joy of it, can become a helicopter or a hockey player or Head Beagle and then again, in a flash, before his virtuosity has a chance to alienate you or diminish you, be the eager little dog who just wants dinner' -- JONATHAN FRANZEN
