  • To me, this book is in the top 3 or 4 books of the 25-volume Freddy series. Florida and Detective are also in that group. The plot, the personalities, and the battle scenario are all superbly crafted. I read all of the series that I could get my hands on at the public library as a child of the late 50s. I read them and tape recorded many of them for my son, who pretty well wore out the tapes (no iPods, iPhones, or portable DVD players in those days). I read the full series, in order, end-to-end to my young daughter, who is the same age as my grandson. They were all simultaneously in print only once -- a brief run by Overland Press. The full availability now in electronic form is a huge blessing.

    I have a tendency to avoid reviewing these books because I don't feel I can take time to do them justice. They are absolutely superb children's literature. They are very engaging, effectively combining humor, intrigue, and action. They offer sound life-lessons and are terrific vocabulary builders. If you're just learning about the series, I suggest you Google "Friends of Freddy the Pig." That may help you understand how much they have meant to so many people.

  • Freddy the pig is a series I think everyone should read. They are interesting to the end and I am collecting them for my children. Can't recommend them enough.

  • Terrific. We bought and read aloud the entire collection!

  • The Freddy books are hard to beat when it comes to fun,silly reading for all ages 9 to 99. This is good, wholesome pass time for all.

  • A story of bravery as usual full of humor.

  • These "Freddy" books are a tremendous advantage in that they speak to children and not down to them. Wonderfully written and carry a last vestige of traditional American standards for morality and values not seen in childrens books anymore. Was very happy to find so many of the series through Amazon.

  • What does it mean to be brave? When Freddy and the rest of the talking animals on Mr. Bean's farm are terrorized by the unknown, evil being in the Big Woods known only as the Ignormus, they learn that being brave isn't a lack of fear. Bravery is facing your fears and standing up to them, refusing to run away from a fight or from the possibility of terrible consequences. Bravery is standing up to your enemies, whether you've seen their face or have only imagined it in your worst nightmare. Bravery is being able to sing a song about yourself as you creep through the deep, dark woods, alone and about to confront your unknown enemy. Though they initially quail at the thought of facing the Ignormus, Freddy and his friends eventually find the courage to go into battle and save the peaceful life they know on Mr. Bean's farm.

    Like this one, all of the books in Walter Brooks' Freddy series are delightful, full of vibrant characters, amusing adventures and not-so-subtle lessons on life. Freddy is a charming hero and one who is certainly not without his faults. His foibles make him all the more "human" and provided the author with abundant material to teach young readers the importance of such things as courage, honesty, loyalty and more. I highly recommend all of the Freddy books to young and old readers alike!

  • Published between 1927 and 1958, the 26 books in the "Freddy the Pig" series are perhaps the most consistently well written children's book series of the 20th century. By turns, Freddy is a detective, a poet, a pilot, a "Pied Piper," a football player--you get the idea. His barnyard friends are fully fleshed and memorable. Ignormus is one of the best Freddys and really keeps kids reading. Freddy has to put on his detective hat and find out who is terrorizing the animals in the "big woods"--and why. If you have kids from 5 to 14, they'll love these books. Brooks was apparently the first children's writer to write in the vernacular and use "slang" -- that dreaded word! -- and he's just as funny today as he ever was. ALSO: If you read the books and love 'em, find the Friends of Freddy website and chatroom - we'd love to meet you. AND we're having a convention in October in upstate New York (the big woods) that you can attend. But most important --read the books, especially to your kids.
