Books: Jasper: The Story of a Mule

Thank you to everyone who stopped by for the It’s Only A Game signing at the Schulz Museum. It’s a shame that Jim Sasseville was unable to attend, but I did pass along everone’s good wishes to him. We had enough Sasseville-signed bookplates for those who showed, and even left the museum gift shop with some signed copies for sale. The It’s Only A Game display is small but it has some nice pieces, and of course any chance to stop by the museum means a chance to see all the rest it has to offer.

Besides that, just a quick note for the Schulziana completists out there: Charles Schulz’s daughter, Meredith Hodges, has done a couple of kids books about a mule. The first, Jasper: The Story of a Mule, is dedicated to her dad. Also available is Jasper: A Christmas Caper.

Meredith has also written a number of non-fiction books on care of mules and donkeys.
