Product Description

The Freddy the Pig books have long been considered classics of American children's literature and with each reissue by The Overlook Press, this wonderful pig is charming his way into the hearts of more and more readers, adults and children alike. In Freddy Rides Again, a new family has moved into the neighborhood, complete with a rude son, a timid cat with a secret name, and a foxhunter father, who takes no notice of the damaged vegetables he and his hunter friends leave in their wake. It's up to Freddy and his trusty steed Cy to find a way for everyone to live together in peace. In Freddy Rides Again, Walter Brooks once again gives us an exciting high-stakes showdown between the brave Freddy and a formidable foe.

"Freddy's readers have called him a porcine prince . . . Walter R. Brooks'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
