The Story of Freginald is a delightful and exciting tale about Freginald, a young bear who joins Mr. Boomschmidt's circus. His extraordinary adventures with other animals-including Leo the lion and Freddy the pig-involve a stirring battle, a weird mystery successfully solved by careful deduction, and some very comical misunderstandings between the bear and an elephant, and between a lion and a mouse. Fans and initiates, alike, will rejoice!

Illustrated by Kurt Wiese.

Praise for the Freddy the Pig Series: "Freddy's readers have called him a porcine prince...Walter R. Brooks's gentle genius shines even brighter... Brooks speaks powerfully to his young readers' moral sense without ever overtly moralizing." Adam Hochschild, "The New York Times" "Funny, beautifully written gems." Nicholas Kristof, "The New York Times" "At my funeral, in lieu of flowers, I'd prefer that people give money to the Friends of Freddy fan club." Deirdre Donahue, "USA Today" "Freddy is blessed with courage, wit, agility and a Sherlock Holmes-like capacity for detective work." "Newsday" "My very, very favourite book series as a child...It is that dual perspective of nostalgia for rural life and sophisticated urbanity that makes Brooks's wry, perceptive and affectionately humorous narrative voice so inviting and entertaining, and as fresh as ever for readers of all ages." Sherie Posesorski, "The Globe and Mail""
