In Freddy the Cowboy, Freddy buys a pony, learns to ride, and winds up in a tussle with the rascaliest varmint in Centerboro. It seems Mr. Flint, owner of the dude ranch, is plotting to rob the First Animal Bank where the animals keep their valuables. And from there on in Freddy and Flint develop a mutual dislike for one another-so much so that Flint lets it be known he will shoot Freddy on sight! With the aid of a brave mouse, the Horrible Ten, and the Bean Farm gang-not to mention Cy, his trusty mount-Freddy shoots it out with Flint in the aisles of the cosmetics department of the Busy Bee. The Wild West was never like this!
Freddy the pig buys a horse and inadvertently makes an enemy of a vicious, unscrupulous cowboy with designs on the First Animals' Bank and on Freddy's life.

This one along with Freddy Goes Camping are two of Walter Brooks BEST! The addition of Cy, Freddys' western pony who appears in other great stories is a wonderful dimension to Freddys' adventures. Cal Flint is one of Brooks most detestable villians. Freddys western ' drawl ' and his unique way of enlisting the Bean mice Eek,Quik,Eeny and Cousin Augustus to help him,all add up to non-stop action,excitement and adventure! A treasure!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
