FREDDY THE PIG Series
The Freddy books have been selected by four book clubs, the audio and film rights sold. Viva Freddy!
Adults, children, and reviewers have embraced the stouthearted Freddy the Pig over the years, and the Overlook reissues of this classic series, with nearly 150,000 hardcovers sold, have brought Freddy to a new generation eager for timeless adventures and a good laugh. As a recent USA Today feature about the Freddy phenomenon noted, the Freddy books brilliantly illustrate the cardinal virtues: fair play and a good sense of humor.
In Freddy Goes Camping, Mr. Camphor s aunts, Minerva and Elmira, were staying with him, much to his disgust. There s two kinds of aunts, he said. There s the regular kind, and then there s the other kind. Mine are the other kind. He enlists Freddy s aid in an attempt to rid his house of the ladies, with the result that Freddy and his chums become entangled with some extremely unfriendly ghosts in an abandoned summer hotel. Freddy camps out, goes canoeing and tosses flapjacks like a pro when he s not mixing it up with the eerie Mr. Eha.
