The Return of Freddy
He busted a tooth,
He's a silly old bonehead, and that is the truth
Freddy the pig,
He talks very big,
But all that he's good for's to guzzle and swig
Freddy the fat,
He's never learned that
It takes forty-nine pigs to equal one rat.
Needless to say the story culminates with Freddy's redemption, but I don't want to give away more than that.
The illustrations for the Freddy books by Kurt Wiese are fabulous, by the way. Overlook Press has published a great collection of many of the illustrations called The Art of Freddy that I also highly recommend. You can learn more from the Friends of Freddy website about these charming books. I think I'll be reading them to my niece and nephew this holiday season.
