Sparky The Life and Art of Charles Schulz by Beverly Gherman


Sparky The Life and Art of Charles Schulz by Beverly Gherman

Like the biography of Wayne Thiebaud, Delicious , this biography will be colourful, fascinating, easily accessible to children, and packed with the art and cartoons of the beloved creator of Snoopy and Charlie Brown.


From the engaging author's note to the moving conclusion, Gherman has written a loving tribute to an American icon.... Thank you, Charles Schulz, and thank you, Beverly Gherman, for letting us get to know Sparky. - San Jose Mercury News

About the Author

Beverly Gherman has written books about artists, authors, dancers, presidents, and scientists. Each of her subjects changed the way society looks at the world. Gherman lives in San Francisco, where she reads the daily Classic Peanuts, still in the newspapers and as meaningful as when Charles Schulz drew them the first time around. She shares them with kids at schools and with her family and friends.
