'With that he tied a blindfold around Santa's eyes and pushed him forward with a continual poking from the point of his sword.' Pirate Freddie had a rough life growing up on his father's pirate ship.

But when Pirate Freddie Meets Santa Claus and takes Santa prisoner on his ship, things might just turn around.

Originally published between 1927 and 1958, the 26 classic books about Freddy the Pig are going on to delight a sixth generation of children. Freddy the Pig, the “Renaissance Pig” (The New York Times Book Review) of Bean Farm, is back to thrill his fans of all ages in these all-American children’s classics. As you surely know, the Bean Farm animals are great travelers. The heroic events of Freddy Goes to the North Pole begin with the establishment of Barnyard Tours, Inc., with Freddy as founder-president. Arctic adventures are famously dangerous and exciting, and this one is no exception. It is fortunate that Freddy and his entourage reach the Pole when they do, as they arrive just in time to be of service to Santa Claus himself.

From its earliest appearance in the 1890s, the newspaper comic strip has told the story of America, from the Irish ghetto of the Yellow Kid to flappers, war heroes, hippies, and today's office drones and soccer moms. American Newspaper Comics is the first comprehensive, authoritative reference work to document this fascinating history, listing over 7,000 different comic strip and cartoon features from American newspapers. While previous books have typically concentrated on the most popular comic strips and panel cartoon series, American Newspaper Comics is designed to be all-inclusive, providing detailed information on important but previously overlooked artists and features. The result of more than twenty years of meticulous research, American Newspaper Comics provides the most complete picture to date of the evolution of newspaper cartoon features and corrects misinformation that has circulated for years in other references. American Newspaper Comics offers a wealth of information, including the start and end dates of features, their format, frequency, creators, and distribution companies. The book also includes handy cross-indexes and a guide to book-length compilations of newspaper cartoons and comics. In addition, the book includes a CD with samples of more than 2,000 cartoon features, including some that may be new to even the most ardent fan or collector.
