In 1965, at the age of four, I remember finding a book that my mom had given my dad. It was a small thing, maybe six inches square, that had a wonderful picture of a small girl hugging a dog on the cover. My folks would read it to me over and over and now, thanks to the thriving trading community on eBay, I've read it to my son and gotten the same joy all over again.

The Art of Charles M. Schulz

It was origianally my intention to write a good bit about Sparky so that you would know how I felt about the man that gave of himself for 50 years. I got my first stuffed Snoopy when I was five and loved it until there was literally almost nothing left. Today I find myself approaching my 53rd birthday but I tell you proudly, without fear of what you may think of me, that I still have a stuffed Snoopy on my bed who gives me comfort, and who's soft face I still cuddle when I'm feeling down. But rather than try to put my feelings into words, I decided that the words and images of Sparky himself, and others, could convey the profound sense of loss that I and so many others felt at his passing. God bless you Charles Schulz. We shall never forget.

Peanuts: A Golden Celebration

The Art and the Story of the World's Best-Loved Comic Strip

Peanuts: A Golden Celebration honors the momentous 50th anniversary of Charlie Brown and the gang with over 1,000 carefully selected strips that tell the story of Peanuts like no other book before. In Schulz's own words we learn how he came to create the world's most popular comic strip characters from nostalgic and sometimes painful memories of growing up--such as the agony of classroom Valentine exchange and the longing for a little red-haired girl.
