Whimsical Summer Reading: Freddy the Pig
If you're looking for ideas for reading with the kids, think of Walter Brook's remarkable porcine and poetic detective. Because of some of the word plays, parodies, and challenging and humorous vocabulary, it may be best for upper elementary school on up, but many young children may still enjoy them. These books are clearly written with a lot of heart and character.
There are 26 books in the series, and each is about 250 page or so. Often they can be found at the public library or Amazon.com. We're currently reading Freddy and the Ignormus, and just finished Freddy and the Perilous Adventure.
