The Freddy the Pig Series
by Walter R. Brooks (Author) Kurt Wiese (Illustrator)
Freddy the Pig can seem the most unheroic of heroes: he oversleeps, daydreams, eats too much and, when not suffering from writer's block, writes flowery poetry for all occasions. His tail uncurls when he gets scared. Although lazy, he accomplishes a lot, because "when a lazy person once really gets started doing things, it's easier to keep on than it is to stop."
But Freddy the Pig is a pig for all seasons - a detective, a pilot, a magician, an explorer, a poet, a politician - you name it! Along with his farm friends - including Jinx the cat and Charles the rooster - on Bean Farm in Upstate New York, Freddy's adventures show ingenuity and endeavour; a good time and a good laugh.
This classic series features the brilliant Freddy and illustrates the cardinal virtues: "fair play and a good sense of humor."
