A mixed-panel format picture book biography of Charles "Sparky" Schulz, creator of the beloved comic strip Peanuts.  A precocious child who skipped two grades in grammar school, the resulting  social isolation of being so much younger than his classmates spurred him to spend more time with his creative efforts. Ginger Wadsworth's text and Craig Orback's genial color illustrations are well-suited to the story of Schulz's development into America's most-beloved comic strip creator.

As a child, Charles split his free time between adventures outdoors with his friends and dog Spike, and daydreams and doodles inspired by the comics he loved to read. He longed to become a professional cartoonist, but saw his dreams deferred by unexpected challenges that lay ahead: military deployment to the European front of World War II, and the heartbreak of a family tragedy back home. Even so, Charles never lost sight of the hopeful joy of his early years and his love for Spike, both of which inspired Peanuts. The comic strip went on to become the most popular and influential in comics history.
