Product Description

The international sensation for readers young and old, Freddy the Pig, is back! Just in time for football season, Freddy accidentally finds himself playing football with the Centerboro High School football team. Freddy manages to impress the coach, and, unlikely as it seems, ends up as a football-playing pig. Soon he finds himself worrying about the big game while still trying to help out his best friends at the Bean Farm.

"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 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.
