Author(s): Charles M. Schulz
Charles Schulz's Peanuts is one of the most timeless and beloved comic strips ever. Now AMP! helps carry on that legacy with new collections of Peanuts classics focused around topics sure to resonate with middle-grade readers. Kicking off the series is Charlie Brown and Friends. Whether it's the curious relationship between a bird, Woodstock, and a dog, Snoopy, or the never-ending crush that Peppermint Patty has on Charlie Brown, the gang's interactions are what make Peanuts resonate with kids. First published in 1950, the classic Peanuts strip now appears in more than 2,200 newspapers in 75 countries in 25 languages. Phrases such as "security blanket" and "good grief," which originated in the Peanuts world, are now part of the global vernacular, and images of Charles Schulz's classic characters- Charlie Brown kicking the football, Lucy leaning over Schroeder's piano-are now universally recognized. Together these books will introduce a new generation of kids to the lovable cast in time for the new animated Peanuts movie, which hits theatres in 2015!
"...a beautiful collection...will bring a smile to the face of those who have never read a Peanuts comic before in their life or those who are re-discovering it after being separated for far too long." (L.B. Bryant, ICv2) "Every member of your family is going to love this book!" (Debbie Glade, Smart Books for Smart Kids)
Charles Schulz was both the brains and the brawn behind nearly 50 years of Peanuts comics from 1950 to his death in 2000.
