* Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. Daily Telegraph * These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment. Sunday Times * Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schulz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes. Herald * Arguably the greatest comic strip of all time is 60 years old. The Daily Telegraph * it is steeped in Schulz's awareness that for every winner in a competition there has to be a loser, if not 20 losers. Jonathan Franzen
