Publisher Description

Freddy the Pig needs a break. As Editor of the Bean Home News and President of the First Animal Bank, he has no time for himself anymore. As Freddy says, "I sometimes think I was much happier when I was just a humble, unpolished pig." So when rich Mr. Camphor wants a summer caretaker, Freddy trots right over to apply. Soon, he's sunning himself on a houseboat, writing a bit of poetry, and even dabbling with his paint set. But Freddy's life of ease quickly comes to an end when Simon and the rest of his rat family show up in Mr. Camphor's attic, followed by a visit from a familiar man with a black moustache and his dirty-faced boy. From Freddy Goes to Florida to Freddy and the Ignormus, Walter R. Brooks' Freddy adventures are delighting a whole new generation of readers with John McDonough's charming narration.

About the Author

Walter Rollin Brooks (1886–1958) was an American writer best remembered for his short stories and children’s books, particularly those about Freddy the Pig and other anthropomorphic animal inhabitants of the “Bean farm” in upstate New York. Brooks was born in Rome, New York, attended college at the University of Rochester, and worked in advertising and at magazines before focusing full-time on his books. In 1937 he published a series of short stories featuring a talking horse and his drunken owner which was the basis for a 1960s television comedy series Mister Ed.
