Prepare for a volley of laughs when Charles M. Schulz’s lowly beagle takes on “the sport of kings” in this can’t-miss collection of Peanuts comics. Who knew that a beagle could play tennis like a pro? In this volume of classic Peanuts comics, Snoopy serves up some skillful humor. Whether playing Linus or Lucy, he’s got the skills to lob some of the best punch lines in the business. In October 1950, the first Peanuts strip premiered in seven national newspapers. Charles M. Schulz’s seemingly simple creation—illustrations of large-headed kids using vocabulary and facing situations far beyond their years—became a well-known, well-loved comic strip and grew to have an enormous global impact. Though the last original Peanuts comic appeared in papers on February 13, 2000, the day after Schulz passed away in his sleep, his work continues to be read in more than two thousand newspapers around the world.
