*"Peanuts and How They Grew. It all began when a kid named Charles Monroe Schulz skipped two grades in school. Suddenly he was te youngest, smallest boy in his class, always last to be chosen for teams, never asked to birthday parties, and usually left to eat his peanut butter sandwiches in solitude.
Years later, that same Charles Schulz, now a newpaper cartoonist, suddenly was fired from his job, and again had to go it alone.
The rest is history. Here is the whole incredible story of growth of the most fantastic comic strip success ever to take the world by storms of laughter, illustrated with tehmost memorable Peanuts adventures from over the past twenty years, and filled with unforgettable insight into the wry, richly human, thoroughly hilarious imagination of Charles M. Schulz."* Source: Back cover.
