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 this terrific adventure, Freddy must keep the real set of flying saucer plans out of the hands of traitorous spies -- though he has a plan to slip them a false set and save the day, all the while disguised as an old gypsy woman. This is vintage Freddy and the whole ensemble cast at their charming best.

Review:

"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
