Attention Shoppers

I just got a mind-boggling batch of Walter Brooks' "Freddy the Pig" books remaindered--the real deal, the lovely reproduction editions put out by Overlook. On the one hand, this makes me worry that they might be going out of print again. On the other hand - SCORE!

I also picked up The Wit and Wisdom of Freddy the Pig; since I helped create it, it seemed I should have a copy. (I selected the quotes from Freddy and Mr. Camphor, if you're interested.)

So if you're holiday shopping, keep your eyes open for this bargain on some of the funniest and coziest children's fantasy ever. Perfect for the 8-12ish age range. Also perfect for the 20-80ish range. They don't need to be read in order; Freddy the Cowboy is an excellent place to start.
