"Charles M. Schulz" #
cartoonist and creator of Peanuts
by Michael A. Schuman
[children's biography]
(openlibrary.org loan)
There are a couple of things I
don't like about this book:
1: The author refers to Charles Schulz
by his last name only.
2: I didn't like learning that Charles Schulz
hated cats.  
On a more positive note, I like the fact
that he was the first major cartoonist
whose characters quoted the Bible.
