Summary of Freddy and the North Pole Summary of Freddy and the North Pole Reviews for Freddy and the North Pole An Excerpt from Freddy and the North Pole
Originally published between 1927 and 1958, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig are going on to delight a sixth generation of children. These beloved classics are available now for the first time as Overlook paperbacks: Freddy the Pig, the "Renaissance Pig" (The New York Times Book Review) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in facsimile editions of these all-American children's classics.

As you surely know, the Bean Farm animals are
great travelers. The heroic events of Freddy Goes to the North Pole begin with the establishment of Barnyard Tours, Inc., with Freddy as founder-president. Arctic adventures are famously dangerous and exciting, and this one is no exception. It is fortunate that Freddy and his entourage reach the Pole when they do, as they arrive just in time to be of service to Santa Claus himself.


"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
