Our customer reviews

The Freddy books should be on your bookshelf, right next to your other vintage treasures. I cannot count the times I laughed while reading this book. Freddy the pig is such an interesting creature, and he has such fascinating animal pals. He attempts to take on the job of a detective, such as Sherlock Holmes does. Sudden mysteries around Mr. Bean's farm come to Freddy, and he uses his sleuthing skills to track down the culprits of such crimes. I do so enjoy the wit of Mrs. Wiggins the cow, and then constant bantering between Charles the rooster and Henrietta the hen. Oh, and the mice, rabbits, and Jinx the cat all add sprightly drama to the story too. Children should absolutely love Freddy and his friends! Thankfully, I have the rest of the Freddy books to keep me busy, until I decide to read all of them again!show more
