Item description for Freddy Rides Again by Walter R. Brooks & Kurt Wiese...

Freddy the Pig and his Bean Farm friends return for two more fabulous adventures in this much loved series. Illustrations.

Publishers Description
Adults, children, and reviewers are falling in love again with Walter Brooks's talking pig and his barnyard friends who live on Bean Farm in upstate New York. The Freddy the Pig books have long been considered classics of American children's literature and with each reissue by The Overlook Press, this wonderful pig is charming his way into the hearts of more and more readers. Freddy's Bean Farm is a frolicking place and Freddy-whether he's a pilot, cowboy, explorer, politician, or detective-will always save the day and be sure to have fun doing it.
In "Freddy Rides Again," Freddy-the porcine idol of people everywhere who love to laugh-gets it all started when he mixes it up with Mr. Elihu P. Margarine, a wealthy foxhunter who does not care a fig for the damaged vegetables he and his hunters leave in their wake. In the background, Henrietta the rooster chastises her husband Charles, "A fine mess you've got yourself into You know where you'll end up, don't you? On a platter with a lot of dumplings, that's where " With the help of Cy, the steed who taught Freddy to ride, Freddy rids the countryside of several menaces, including a rattlesnake and Elihu Margarine-making even Henrietta happy. It all makes for a stirring saga of a remarkably colorful pig and his steadfast barnyard compatriots.

Reviews - What do customers think about Freddy Rides Again?

Freddy's back!  Oct 16, 2006
Freddy is back in the his saddle on his horse, Cy. Some rich folks have moved in next door tothe Beans and they are creating a huge ruckus. It's Freddy's job to get them in their place. This is an extremely creative series.
Cowpig OK; Goatcat better  Jul 15, 2002
"Freddy the Cowboy" is one of the best titles in the series, with a reasonably tight plot and the thoroughly delightful origin story of the Horrible Ten, so it is not surprising that it was followed up immediately by this sequel.

Unfortunately, "Freddy Rides Again" is weaker than "Freddy the Cowboy" (or "Destry Rides Again"). Elihu Margarine is snobbish and arrogant, but not quite villainous enough; the animals' campaign against him veers on the obnoxious. The most memorable image is Jinx, in his little cowboy outfit, riding his faithful steed, Bill the Goat; if only the story made more use of him!

One more note: When Freddy is talking Western Badman Speak, the word "greaser" pops up, apparently in its racial sense; in questionable taste in the fifties, and you may want to smooth over it today! Yoicks!
