Product Description

Illustrations by Kurt Wiese


The Freddy the Pig books, long considered classics of American children's literature are with each reissue by Overlook Press finding new readers. For Freddy's growing legions of fans, Bean Farm is a place of constant adventure and Freddy its lovable hero: whether he's a cowboy, explorer, politician, pilot, or detective, he is always there to save the day.

In Freddy the Pilot, Freddy takes to the air to save Mr. Boorschmidt's Stupendous and Unexcelled Circus from the evil schemes of Watson P. Condiment, the comicbook tycoon. Soaring through the clouds may be scary for some, but for Freddy it's all in a day's work as he takes on Condiment's flying henchman, a feud between the skunks and the rabbits, and even the U.S. Army!

"They are the American version of the great English classics, such as the Pooh books or 'The Wind in the Willows.'" The New York Times Book Review

"...there's a richness to the world of the Bean Farm and a strong moral code that is timeless..." Los Angeles Times

"Freddy is simply one of the greatest characters in children's literature!"School Library Journal
