Product Description

The international sensation for readers young and old, Freddy the Pig, is back! Freddy takes to the air to save Mr. Boorschmidt's Stupendous and UnexcelledCircus from the malicious comic-book tycoon, Watson P. Condiment. Soaring through the clouds may be scary for some, but for Freddy it's all in a day's work as he takes on flying enemy henchmen, skunks, rabbits, and even the U.S. Army! Once again, Walter R. Brooks has created a sparkling and heartfelt adventure story that will delight grown-ups as well as children.

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
