Product Description

Illustrations by Kurt Wiese


Freddy the Pig, the "Renaissance Pig" (The New York Times Book Review) of Bean Farm, is back to delight legions of fans of all ages in facsimile editions of these all-American children's classics

Freddy the Detective really brings our star player into his own. Freddy, well-read pig that he is, hatches the idea to be a detective while reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. And just in time, too. All over Mr. Bean's farm mysterious things are happening -- train cars disappear, a rabbit loses his way, a band of thieves are found hiding in the woods--and Freddy becomes so busy being a detective that he even has to take on Mrs. Wiggins the cow as his Partner. But Freddy's true test comes when he must prove that Jinx the cat was framed for murder -- the ultimate challenge for our dashing hero, Freddy.
