Part of Canongate’s highly collectible and praised series, with an introduction by Al Roker
This volume of The Complete Peanuts features the long, surprisingly dramatic sequence in which a grievously ill Charlie Brown checks himself into a hospital while his friends worry. But the rest of the stories in this, the final volume from the 1970s, are far less sombre, as Snoopy launches his ‘bird scout’ treks, Peppermint Patty gets leaked on at school and sues - plus one of the great forgotten romances in Peanuts history!
“Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life”

“It’s impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does … at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz”
“The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated”
“Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz’s work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book”
“These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment”
Charles M. Schulz was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1922 and grew up in Saint Paul. He gained a reputation worldwide as a cartoonist for his work on Peanuts. He died in 2000.
