PEANUTS Children's Publishing Rights Acquired by Running Press

Running Press Book Publishers, an imprint of the Perseus Books Group, has acquired the primary PEANUTS children's publishing license from United Media (UM), the agency that syndicates and licenses PEANUTS by Charles M. Schulz. The deal with UM will initiate a novelty children's book line that will focus on the vast amount of content derived from the PEANUTS comic strip and popular television specials. Already in the works for a fall 2007 release is "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown."
