Description
Walter R. Brooks introduced Freddy the Pig in 1927 with Freddy Goes to Florida. It's winter, and the barn is cold. There's no central heating for the ducks. No quilts for the mice. The animals of Bean Farm know that Mr. Bean can't afford to fix up their barn properly for the coming winter, so Freddy and friends decide to do the next best thing: head to Florida for a vacation. On the way south with the migrating birds, Freddy, Jinx the Cat, Charles the Rooster and the other animals foil burglars, outwit a band of hungry alligators, meet the President, and even uncover buried treasure. From 1927 to 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote 26 books starring one of the great characters in American children's literature: Freddy the Pig. 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.
