"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

When Freddy's friend Mr. Dimsey is ousted for publishing news of Bean Farm in the local newspaper, the animals decide to take action and publish the first animal newspaper The Bean Home News-with Freddy as editor-in-chief, of course! But everyone's favorite pig discovers that being a newspaperman isn't as easy as it looks!

About the Author:

Walter R. Brooks was an American writer best remembered for his short stories on Mister Ed the talking horse and children's books, particularly those about Freddy the Pig and other anthropomorphic animal inhabitants of the "Bean farm" in upstate New York.

Kurt Wiese illustrated over 400 books, nineteen of which he also wrote, before his death in 1974

Review:

Praise for Freddy the Pig:

"Freddy's readers have called him a porcine prince... Walter R. Brook's gentle genius shines even brighter."--Nicholas Kristoff, 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."-- Syracuse Post Standard

"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

"[Walter Brooks'] prose was simple but elegant, without being dumbed down, and that the characters weren't plaster saints. Freddy was a bit lazy, a little vain, and not much of a house--uh, penkeeper. But the spirit of the stories was like the spirit of the Bean Farm's animals--kind, amiable, and clever."--The American Culture Blog
