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.
