Read full description of the books It's Your Year, Charlie Brown:‘Good ol’ Charlie Brown shares his heartwarming and hilarious journal. It’s a year of baseball, kite-eating trees, unrequited love and much more.’
Published, I assume, to tie in with the animated film due out at the end of the year (but only published in the UK apparently), this is a prose story but filled with wonderful Charles M Schulz illustrations. Charlie Brown gets a journal for Christmas and decides to use it, first introducing us to his friends before settling into the year. Nicely written and perfectly capturing his tone, this takes as its cue for incidents key strips in the comics long history and, since I recognised a lot of them, it was lovely to see the event from a different perspective. There’s plenty to like here - Lucy, Linus, Peppermint Patty, Snoopy, the kite-eating tree, the little red-haired girl (he doesn’t get any valentines cards but there were “a LOT for Snoopy…I don’t know how that beagle does it”), kicking the football - and one truly joyous entry (August 25th, when he finally flies a kite - “What a day! What a beautiful, beautiful day!”). I enjoyed it a lot and if you’re a fan of the Peanuts strip, I’d highly recommend it.

Sally Morgan is recognised as one of Australia's best known Aboriginal artists and writers. She is one of a number of successful urban Aboriginal artists.
Sally was born in Perth in 1951, the eldest of five children. As a child she found school difficult because of questions from other students about her appearance and family background. She understood from her mother that she and her family were from India. However, when Sally was fifteen she learnt that she and her sister were in fact of Aboriginal descent, from the Palku people of the Pilbara.
This experience of her hidden origins, and subsequent quest for identity, was the stimulus for her first book "My Place" published in 1987. It tells the story of her self discovery through reconnection with her Aboriginal culture and community. The book was an immediate success and has since sold over half a million copies in Australia. It has also been published in the United States, Europe and Asia.
Her second book "Wanamurraganya" was published in 1989. It is the biography of her grandfather, Jack McPhee. She has also written five books for children.
As well as writing, Sally Morgan has established an international reputation as an artist. She has works in numerous private and public collections in Australia and the United States, including the Australian National Gallery and the Dobell Foundation collection. Her work is particularly popular in the United States. Her work as an artist is excellently described and illustrated in the book Art of Sally Morgan.
She has received many awards, including from the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission. As a part of the celebration in 1993 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, her print Outback was selected by international art historians as one of 30 paintings and sculptures for reproduction on a stamp representing an article of the Declaration.
My Place remains her most influential work, not only because of its very wide popularity but also because it provided a new model for other writers, particularly those of indigenous background.
She is currently Director of the Centre for Indigenous History and Arts at The University of Western Australia.
