    " How is it I'd never heard of Freddy the Pig? This is our first but certainly not our last Freddy book. I picked this up on a whim at a Strand sidewalk sale in NYC and it turns out I'd found a treasure. So funny and definitely accessible 80 years after its publication. "

    " My mother got my children hooked on this series from her childhood by reading them the first 2 books (The first is "Freddy Goes to Florida"). They have humor that ranges from slapstick, which the kids love, to sophisticated satire, which is completely over their heads. Being written so long ago, these books are not exactly socially progressive, but the kids have been loving them. "
