Description
Freddy the Pig is not terribly surprised when he reads that six little creatures "captured" by Herbert Garble are claimed to be Martians. He doesn't believe it for a minute—Garble is well known to the Bean Farm animals as a cheat and a scoundrel. But when Freddy reads that Garble's Martians will be part of Boomschmidt's Stupendous & Unexcelled Circus, Freddy becomes genuinely alarmed for his friend Mr. Boomschmidt. He sets out immediately to expose Garble's hoax, aided by Jinx the Cat, the Horrible Ten, and also a band of real Martians, who show up in the nick of time. From 1927 to 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote 26 books starring Freddy the Pig, one of the great characters in American children's literature. Freddy is Everypig—he oversleeps, overeats, daydreams, and writes poetry. He's even a little bit lazy, and when he's scared, his tail uncurls. Yet when there's trouble among the animals on Bean Farm, Freddy always rises to the occasion, and is by turns a cowboy, explorer, politician, publisher, poet, magician, banker, campaign manager, pilot, and ace detective. Long out of print, the Freddy series was reintroduced in 2001, with Kurt Wiese's original ink drawings, to the delight of readers 7 to 11 and listeners of all ages.
