Overview

Freddy and the Ignormus by Walter R. Brooks, John McDonough

From 1927 to 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote 26 books starring one of the great characters in American children's literature: Freddy the Pig. The Freddy books, widely beloved as classics and deemed the American equivalent of the Pooh stories, are a remarkable achievement in children's literature.
Since their original publication, the complete series has never been available; librarians across the country report to the Friends of Freddy, the international fan club, an ever increasing demand for their precious wellworn copies; one librarian has resorted to photocopying the books and binding them with hockey-stick tape! Overlook has begun a program to put back in print the entire Freddy series.
Freddy is Everypig -- he over sleeps, overeats, daydreams, and writes poetry. He's even a little bit lazy. And when he's scared, his tail uncurls. He is by turns a cowboy, explorer, politician, publisher, poet, magician, banker, campaign manager, pilot, detective. Whatever the situation may call for, Freddy always rises to the occasion!

When I first read Freddy and the Ignormus I thought it was funny. Now I own the book and I have read it three times. I love this book and all young readers will love this book also.
