Product Description

Published over a 40 year period, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig have delighted five generations of children, they are now going on to delight a sixth generation.
This beloved children’s classic is available now as paperback:

Freddy and the Space Ship -- The lovable characters from Bean Farm took off for Mars in Benjamin Bean’s fabulous space ship but Mrs. Peppercorn’s fiddling with the controls knocked them off their course and landed them in a far more strange place than they had prepared for.



Walter R. Brooks (1886–1958) is the beloved author of 26 books about Freddy the Pig. Born in upstate New York, he attended the University of Rochester before going 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 Mister Ed the talking horse.



Praise for Freddy the Pig:


“Freddy’s readers have called him a porcine prince…Walter R. Brook’s gentle genius shines even brighter.” --Nicholas Kristoff, 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


“Freddy’s fame is growing – just not on his home turf. With that in mind, we suggest you find one of the books. After a few pages, guaranteed, you’ll be proud he’s our pig.” --Syracuse Post Standard


“The American version of the great English classics such as the Pooh books or The Wind in the Willows.” --The New York Times Book Review
