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, Peanuts has something to touch your heart or make you laugh.

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. 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 memorable.

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.

This collection manages to be both classic and current at the same time with ease. Humor shines through as always in Schulz's comics. Schulz manages to convey so much of life experiences with these few boxes of drawn up characters and a couple of lines of dialog (monologues as well!). Watching Snoopy fight with that neighboring cat and Peppermint Patty at obedience school as well as every other included comic strip will not fail to make you smile. And if you want to make a paper helicopter at the end of it all, well, you can do that as well with the instructions included in this book. A color republication of an earlier edition, this book is the perfect pick-me-upper for all those times you need a, well, pick-me-up! I enjoyed every bit of it, as did the kids. We all have been enjoying reading the Peanuts comic strips in our Sunday newspaper for as long as I can remember, and this book provides all that enjoyment in one cool collection - some familiar and many new as well. There are also so many life lessons imparted through these pages that make me say ' I need to do this ', like the one where Snoopy tries to get to the park and his monologue inspires me to get out and do more (sadly,  in my case, I often listen to my feet :)) And that snarky, quirky sense of humor that totally appeals to me: Rating: A Reading Level: 7 - 12 years Reread Level: A Thank you to NetGalley for a digital RC of the book. The opinions are fully mine(ours!) and totally overdue in this case :)

First off I’d like to thank Netgalley, the author and of course the publisher, for allowing me to read this book in exchange for my honest review. I grew up loving the Peanuts Gang, I read their comic strips religiously, had their coloring books, and watched all the specials on T.V. When I became a parent I introduced them to my children, I mean how could you not love the gang. My favorite has always been Snoopy, always has and always will. In this collection of the peanuts there are colored comic strips, which just bring back so many memories for me. There were two characters not in the book, Pig Pen and Franklin. I know they weren’t in every comic strip, but they were however in all the television special. The kids all still look the same in the strip, but they do seem to of grown-up some. Peppermint Patty is still very much an abrasive character, and when I say abrasive I do say it with love. Linus still carries his blanket, I can’t blame him, and I still love all my blankets. Peppermint Patty does seem to have the spotlight in most of the book, and I’m ok with it, I really wouldn’t mind more books to come and put a different character in the fore front. I adore the fact this has came out for a new generation to love.

I grew up with the Peanuts gang. I read the comics and knew all of the TV specials by heart. I loved ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ and watched ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ every year. I have a Peanuts book with black and white comics that I read to death as a kid. While its pages are yellow with age, they’re thankfully all intact. I know I’ll never part with it. One of the first stuffed toys I ever received was Snoopy and I have photos of me sitting holding it before I was a year old. I still have that Snoopy, although he kind of doesn’t have a nose anymore. It wasn’t me! Oh, who am I kidding? I’m sure it was me. It’s not like I have any siblings to blame. I even completed a cross stitch as an adult of Lucy sitting at her psychiatry booth, which is as cute and funny as it sounds. So, that was a long winded way of saying that it basically feels like the Peanuts gang grew up down the road from me, so reading I’m Not Your Sweet Babboo! felt like I was catching up with my childhood friends. I knew a lot of the stories already so they felt like the gang and I were reminiscing about the good ol’ days. I was also excited to find some comic strips I’d never encountered before (I guess I wasn’t home those days and they had adventures without me). “If life were a camera, I’d have the lens cap on.” - Charlie Brown Charles M. Schulz created such a wonderful cast of characters. There are just so many smiles in this book. Peppermint Patty is excited that she doesn’t have to go to school anymore because she’s just graduated. Snoopy is her attorney when the public school wants evidence of her graduation. She has graduated - from dog obedience training. Peppermint Patty and Marcie learn how competitive golf can be when they become caddies at the Country Club. Marcie calls Peppermint Patty ‘sir’ all of the time, as usual. Snoopy and Woodstock have some talks with ‘World War II’, the mean cat next door, who doesn’t talk so much as bowl Snoopy over ever chance it gets. Snoopy also meets the beagle of his dreams, plans his wedding and invites his brother Spike to be his best man. Charlie Brown waits by the mailbox for Valentines, chats to the kite-eating tree and learns why you can’t trust 3’s. Sally welcomes the new school building, Schroeder plays the piano and Lucy fawns over him, and naturally, Linus and his blanket hang out. I would have liked Franklin and Pig-Pen to show up but I’m sure they’ll make appearances in other collections. “No, ma’am, I wasn’t daydreaming … I was conceptualising!” - Peppermint Patty I adored this book, particularly the comic strips that were new to me. Having mostly read black and white Peanuts comics I loved that this collection was in colour. Because these kids were a significant part of my childhood, nostalgia will always play a huge role in how I look at any of the characters but from my point of view Mr Schulz’s characters have stood the test of time. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for this wonderful trip down memory lane.

Time with the Peanuts gang is always welcome. Charles Schulz is wry and funny. A book that readers of all ages can enjoy, whether you read these with nostalgia or are new to his comic strip. A classic!
