The quips, homilies, bons mots, aphorisms, and pithy tidbits collected here instruct and entertain while reminding us of our favorite Freddy moments. Organized under such subjects as Friendship, Responsibility, Honesty, and Humor, they capture the unmistakable tenor of relations on Bean Farm and reinforce the values of our favorite pig. From Freddy s opinions on on not getting hung up on appearances to Mr. Camphor s take on the importance of good ideas, from Whibley the Owl s battle against preconceived notions to Henrietta the Hen s emphasis on a balance between business and pleasure, "Wit & Wisdom" brings together the entire Freddy cast in a cornucopia of the funny, the delightful, and the Forever True, drawn from all 26 of the cherished Freddy books."show more
