Product Description

First published between 1927 and 1958, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig have delighted five generations of children and are now going on to delight a sixth generation. These beloved children’s classics are available now for the first time as Overlook paperbacks.

Freddy the Pig must summon all of his courage and detective skills when the chief suspect of a series of robberies on the Bean Farm is a legendary beast from the Big Woods.



WALTER R. BROOKS (1886--1958) is the beloved author of 26 books about Freddy the Pig. He edited 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 Newbury Awards and two Caldecott Honor Book Awards.
