Meet Freddy the Pig! Duckworth is delighted to be introducing UK readers to the American great, sure to melt the hearts of a new audience. With over one million copies sold worldwide, Freddy the Pig finally arrives to the UK in April 2016!    

Freddy is ‘the smallest and cleverest’ of the pigs on Bean Farm in rural upstate New York. So when trouble strikes, first with a toy train disappearing, then Prinny the Dog’s dinner going missing and Egbert the Rabbit vanishing, Freddy has an idea. Inspired by reading Sherlock Holmes, he decides to set up a detective agency in the barn, along with his partner Mrs. Wiggins the Cow. But when Freddy’s best friend Jinx the Cat is framed for a dastardly deed, all of Freddy’s detecting skills are put to the test.
