About the Book
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!

My Take on the Book
It is hard to believe that Charles Shultz , the loved creator of PEANUTS and the gang, passed away in the year 2000.He drew 17, 897 PEANUT comic strips in his career.

This particular book contains all the PEANUT characters in mostly short, 4 section, comic strips. The content reflects the time written and both adult and children will enjoy reading them.

The book would be appropriate at an independent level for middle grade readers and older. I found myself smiling and laughing as I read each section. Charles Schulz really knew how to capture everyday situations and life's ups and downs.
Enjoy this book!
