Part of Canongate’s highly collectible and highly praised series, with an introduction by Tom Tomorrow
Love takes many shapes and shades in The Complete Peanuts: 1991-1992. Charlie Brown’s interest in the Little Red-Haired Girl is rekindled; Linus fails to impress Lydia; Sally hoorays for Hollywood; Marcie pines for the World War I Flying Ace, who becomes lost in his cups (of root beer); Peppermint Patty and Marcie try to make Charlie Brown choose between them; and Snoopy is dangerously obsessed … with cookies.
“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”

“Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life”
“The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated”
“I became obsessed by Peanuts. The obvious thing is the wit, and the irony, but there’s also a sort of spiritual simplicity in Woodstock and Snoopy, silent clowns who have the deepest thoughts about the human conundrum. And the set-up of the boy who always underachieves and his dog who’s brilliant at everything - it’s hilarious. We all went to school with a Lucy, or a Linus, or a Pigpen”
“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”
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.
