Product Description

The 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig now to delight a sixth generation of children. These beloved classics are available for the first time as Overlook paperbacks: Freddy the Pig, the "Renaissance Pig" (The New York Times Book Review) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in facsimile editions of these all-American children's classics. In Freddy and Mr. Camphor, Freddy is in need of a change and finds an opportunity for one as a caretaker on Mr. Camphor’s houseboat. Of course, things never go as Freddy expects and a series of strange, amusing, and sometimes alarming adventures ensue.

"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
