A better biography returns

One of the better for-kids Schulz biographies is coming back into print. Michael Schuman’s book, released back in 2002 as Charles Schulz: Cartoonist and Creator of Peanuts (part of the People To Know series) will be returning as Charles Schulz in the Influential Lives series as both a paperback and a library-rugged hardback this August.

This isn’t something that was just culled from Wikipedia, Shulman talked to people, got new bits – nothing that would shock the serious student of Schulz, but the result is a work that won’t make the reader feel like they’re wasting their time.
