About the Book
The all-time classic cartoon Peanuts reaches out to a new audience of kids in the specially curated series of AMP! Comics for Kids.

Put me in, Coach!

Charlie Brown: POW!

The Peanuts gang is ready to play ball in this collection of baseball-themed cartoons. Some of the most popular Peanuts moments happen on the field and they're gathered here for a season full of enjoyment. As manager of the endlessly losing team, Charlie Brown soldiers on to keep his team's spirits up, while being constantly blown off the pitching mound in a clothes-exploding fashion. It doesn't help that his catcher is a musician by nature or that his shortstop is a dog. Not to mention that center-fielder Lucy can't keep her mouth shut long enough to know what's going on in the game! Put them all together and you get a game plan for laughs!

Charlie Brown: POW!

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.

My Take on the Book
This was a great collection of Peanuts comics live and in living color. I really loved reliving some of my favorite comic strips all in one place. I shared this with my eldest daughter as she had never really read any of the actual comics and she loved the collection too and now wants to read even more. This is a great book that any Peanuts lover will enjoy!
