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 Freddy the Cowboy, Mr. Flint, the owner of a nearby dude ranch, is planning to rob the First Animal Bank and it's up to Freddy to save the day! When Freddy ruins his plans, Flint vows revenge. Together with his faithful friends, Freddy faces off against his enemy in a series of confrontations. The rivalry leads up to a dramatic shootout in the cosmetic department of the Busy Bee and a humorous fate for the troublesome Mr. Flint. The Wild West was never like this!


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
