Product Description

These beloved classics, originally published between 1927 and 1958, are available now 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 this terrific adventure, Mrs. Peppercorn reports trouble afoot in Centerboro. Luckily, Freddy and his Bean Home friends have the help of their very own dragon to catch the culprits. This is vintage Freddy and the whole ensemble cast at their charming best.

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


Walter R. Brooks (1886–1958) is the author of 26 books about Freddy the Pig. Born in upstate New York, he attended the University of Rochester before going on to work with the American Red Cross and editing for magazines, including The New Yorker. In addition to the Freddy books, Brooks created the character Mr. Ed the Talking Horse.

Kurt Wiese (1887–1974) illustrated over 300 children’s books and wrote and illustrated another 20 books. He received two Newbery Awards and two Caldecott Honor Book Awards.
