Item description for Freddy the Cowboy (Freddy the Pig Series) by Walter R. Brooks & Kurt Wiese...
Overview Freddy the pig buys a horse and inadvertently makes an enemy of an unscrupulous cowboy with designs on the First Animals' Bank and on Freddy's life.
Publishers Description Adults, children, and reviewers have embraced the stouthearted Freddy the Pig since he and his Bean Farm chums first appeared in 1927, and the Overlook reissues of this classic series-with almost 150,000 hardcover copies sold-have brought these timeless adventures to an entirely new generation eager for a good time and a good laugh. As a recent "USA Today" feature about the Freddy phenomenon noted, the Freddy books brilliantly illustrate the cardinal virtues: "fair play and a good sense of humor." 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

Not just a children's classic! Mar 24, 2000
Freddy the Cowboy is one of the funniest books I've read! Freddy's adventures with Cal Flint, the picklefaced cowboy, and attempted riding will keep you in stitches. The farm animals each have their own personalities, some may remind you of a neighbor or brother. The rhymes are great, and you will love the Horrible Ten! Must read!
