Charlie Brown and Friends
What began in the funny pages in 1950 has developed into an enduring classic. Whether you're a fussbudget like Lucy, philosopher like Linus, Flying Ace like Snoopy, or a lovable loser like Charlie Brown, there is something to touch your heart or make you laugh in "Peanuts."
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. Second in 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 theaters in 2015 "
