Synopsis:

Freddy, the smallest and cleverest of the pigs on Bean Farm, is “a pig of many parts, a paragon of porkers” (The New York Times).

Detective, politician, ambassador to the Martians―whatever the situation requests, Freddy fits the bill. There’s never a dull moment for Freddy and the other animals on Bean Farm, who are “as fast-mouthed and sharply funny as the Marx Brothers, as aphoristic and gimlet-eyed as astute as Noel Coward, and yet always affectionate and forgiving” (The Globe and Mail).

These beloved classics―childhood favorites of Overlook publisher Peter Mayer―are available now for the first time as Overlook paperbacks, as well as in handsome hardcover editions. Freddy the Pig, the “Renaissance Pig” (The New York Times) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in facsimile editions of these all-American children’s classics.  

The Story of Freginald is another classic from Walter R. Brooks. This exciting tale is of a bear named Freginald who joins the famous Boomschmidt Circus and becomes known as the bear that recites poetry. Together with his new friend, Leo the Lion, Freginald sets off to find other unusual animal acts for the circus. The two friends are taken prisoner by a group of renegade farm animals and the entire circus must come to their rescue. A thrilling battle, a rival circus, and a strange mystery that can only be solved by Freddy the Detective all make for a rollicking tale for Freddy and Brooks fans everywhere.

About the Author: Walter R. Brooks was born in Rome, New York on January 9, 1886, and died in Roxbury, New York on August 17, 1958. Brooks attended the University of Rochester and, after graduation, worked for the American Red Cross and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. He became associate editor of Outlook in 1928 and subsequently was a staff writer for several magazines, including The New Yorker. The short stories he began writing at this time were published in The Saturday Evening Post, Atlantic Monthly, and Esquire. Brooks's short story "Ed Takes the Pledge" was the basis for the 1950s television series Mr. Ed, but his most lasting achievement is the Freddy the Pig series, which began in 1928 with To and Again (Freddy Goes to Florida). He subsequently wrote twenty-five more delightful books starring "that charming ingenious pig" (The New York Times), all of which are now available from The Overlook Press.
