Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts: Pirates and Parrots

"I've always wondered why pirates carried parrots on their shoulders." Thus Linus gets things started in this original comic strip artwork by Charles M. Schulz for Peanuts dating from 1996. The artwork is dedicated to one Chris Paolini--but apparently not Chris Paolini the author, who was too young to be trading in Eisenhower autographs at the time.

Inscribed, "For Chris [Paolini] with friendship and appreciation--Charles M. Schulz"
