Cartoon icon Charlie Brown and canine companion Snoopy are coming to Scotland in a new comic book adventure based on an old but recently discovered story.

The edition of the famous Peanuts cartoon series, entitled Scotland Bound, Charlie Brown, is an adaptation of a work found in the archives of creator Charles M Schulz.

The book’s cover features Charlie and friends Linus, Lucy and Schroeder, alongside Snoopy clad in tartan and playing the bagpipes, arriving in a small boat in a misty Scotland.

The storyline sees Charlie visit after falling for Scots pen-pal Morag. The book sees the gang encounter a string of familiar Scottish icons, including the Loch Ness monster. It is not known, however, if Charlie tracks down his ancestors – Scotland’s most famous Broons – in Glebe Street.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time, Schulz, who died aged 77 in 2000, launched his Peanuts comics, featuring long-suffering Charlie, in the 1950s, the series becoming hugely successful.

The new book is the latest to see an international cartoon series use Scotland as a setting, with crime-fighting reporter Tintin visiting in his adventure The Black Island, first serialised in the late 1930s.
