Thank you, Charles Schulz, and thank you, Beverly Gherman, for letting us get to know Sparky.\ KIRKUS REVIEWS\\\ Gherman s clear and direct prose is just right for portraying the life of the famous cartoonist for young readers. The splashy, bright design, with multicolored pages and several of Schulz s cartoons included, makes this a cheery read that may well introduce the Peanuts comic strip to a new generation....An informative yet lighthearted look at the life of an American icon.

A bio too long in coming.

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.
