Part of Canongate’s highly collectible and highly praised series, with an introduction by Jake Tapper
In the 22nd volume of The Complete Peanuts, you’ll see the whole gang waiting … and waiting … and waiting for a bus that never comes. Charlie Brown finally hits a game-winning home run - off Roy Hobbes’ great-granddaughter no less! Linus lobbies the White House to nominate Snoopy for an open Supreme Court seat (alas, it goes to Ruth Bader Ginsburg instead). Woodstock discovers his long-lost grandfather’s diary, detailing a hard life in captivity (i.e. a birdcage).
“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”
“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.
