"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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
