FREDDY THE PIG Series
The Freddy the Pig books have long been considered classics of American children s literature and with each reissue by The Overlook Press, this wonderful pig is charming his way into the hearts of more and more readers, adults and children alike. Freddy s Bean Farm is a frolicking place and Freddy whether he s a pilot, cowboy, explorer, politician, or detective will always save the day and be sure to have fun doing it.
In Freddy Plays Football, our heroic pig-athlete borrows a football sweater that he finds unattended in the bleachers. When the coach calls him into the scrimmage, not noticing his snout and curly tail, Freddy's blocking and tackling is impressive. As it turns out, nothing in the by-laws specifically prevents pigs from enrolling at Centerboro High School, and so begins the athletic career of our remarkable pig.
