NO ORDINARY BIRD . . .
For a small guy, Woodstock makes a big impression. True, he gets a tad jumpy around Thanksgiving and tends to have a bit of a temper, but Woodstock can type and take shorthand, and he’s a great friend and confidant to Snoopy–even though the little bird is often the butt of the beagle’s practical jokes. Whether flying erratically around the baseball field or embarking on adventures with his best pal, Woodstock is loved by one and all. So join this famous yellow bird and the rest of the Peanuts gang in a comic strip collection full of fun . . . and flight.

About the Author
Charles M. Schulz was born in 1922 in Minneapolis, the only child of a housewife and a barber. His interest in comics was encouraged by his father, who loved the funny pages. After army duty, Schulz lettered comic pages for Timeless Topix, and sold seventeen cartoons to The Saturday Evening Post from 1948 to 1950 and a feature, Li'l Folks, to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Peanuts debuted on October 2, 1950, and ran without interruption for the next fifty years. Schulz died on February 12, 2000, and his last strip ran the next day. Peanuts has appeared in 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries.
