Created by Charles Schultz, Charlie Brown is a the loser everyone loves. These titles, from our digital collections, show that he's just an average guy with ups and downs in his life.

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.

Will they never learn? Sibling rivalries. Overzealous hall monitors. Un-kicked footballs. It's the Peanuts gang you know and love, and everyone's at it again. Lucy is offering her trademark 5¢ psychiatric advice-and her customers are wondering if it's actually worth the pennies. Snoopy's dinner bowl has been thrown deep into enemy territory-and he will do anything to avoid retrieving it from the neighbor's cat. Finally, our hero must work alongside the little red-haired girl, his secret crush, for a school project…can you guess how that will turn out? You'll find old tricks and new antics in this latest collection of the world-renowned comics. 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.

Charlie Brown, Linus, Peppermint Patty and Marcie are chosen as exchange students, destined to spend two weeks in France. Of course, Snoopy and Woodstock join the French odyssey, which turns out to be a combination of mystery, intrigue and romance.
