Overview

 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!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Every member of your family is going to love this book!" (Debbie Glade, Smart Books for Smart Kids)

"...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)

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
“You know what’s depressing?” questions Charlie. “What?” responds Linus. “I’ve played a lot of sports, right?” Charlie inquires. “Right,” answers Linus. “I’ve never been double-teamed!!” Charlie states. This is one of many jokes in this collection of classical strips of the Peanut gang. Lucy is still witty and playing jokes on Charlie. Linus shows his athletic skills, while Snoopy and Woodstock play a game in the water fountain. The author also includes some favorites such as Lucy giving psychiatric help to Charlie for five cents at her well-known yellow lemonade-style stand. In addition to these classic cartoons, there is an all-exclusive section with engaging facts and activities that readers and fans can complete at home or in the classroom. Whether a teacher or parent wants to make a Charlie Brown mask, an animated flipbook, Snoopy’s favorite puppy chow, or your very own Peanuts kite, this book can serve as a useful resource. With older readers, teachers can teach readers how to write reflection comics, in which students portray real-life occurrences and emotions in a four-panel comic strip. Reviewer: Erika Clark; Ages 7 to 12.
