Product Description

Originally published between 1927 and 1958, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig are now going on to delight a sixth generation of children. These beloved classics 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, Freddy must keep the real set of flying saucer plans out of the hands of traitorous spies -- though he has a plan to slip them a false set and save the day, all the while disguised as an old gypsy woman. 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
