Product Description

The international sensation for readers young and old, Freddy the Pig, is back! Adoniram lives with his cruel aunt and uncle until a chance flood leads him to the irrepressible Freddy and Jinx the Cat. The animals convince him to stay at Bean Farm and Mr. Bean's brother even builds him a mechanical twin playmate. When Adoniram's aunt and uncle come looking for him, they mistake the clockwork twin for the real boy. A rollicking comedy of errors ensues, and it is once again up to Freddy and friends to save the day.


Praise for Freddy the Pig:

"Freddy's readers have called him a porcine prince . . . Walter R. Brook's gentle genius shines even brighter." —Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times

"At my funeral, in lieu of flowers, I'd prefer that people give money to the Friends of Freddy fan club." —Deirdre Donahue, USA Today

"Freddy is blessed with courage, wit, agility and a Sherlock Holmes-like capacity for detective work." —Newsday
