Publisher's Description

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).

Freddy the Pig, the "Renaissance Pig" (The New York Times) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in 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.
