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 readers aged 8 to 12 years. Kicking off the series is Snoopy: Cowabunga! What began in the funny pages in 1950 has developed into an enduring classic. The 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 recognised. 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!
