Publisher's Description

Published over a 40 year period, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig have delighted five generations of children, and they are now going on to delight a sixth generation.

When J.J. Pomeroy, the robin, almost pulled off Freddy’s tail, thinking it was a worm, Freddy decided to transform the robin into a popinjay. This starts a series of transformations—some of which may be a big mistake.

Editorial Reviews

"Freddy’s readers have called him a porcine prince . . . Walter R. Brooks’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

"Freddy’s fame is growing—just not on his home turf. With that in mind, we suggest you find one of the books. After a few pages, guaranteed, you’ll be proud he’s our pig." —The Post-Standard (Syracuse)

"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
