Warnings had been printed in the Bean Home News and the Centerboro Guardian, but nobody paid much attention to them. An animal revolt? Preposterous! said the Beans and all the other humans.

But it's true - and the outrages begin: cars are stopped and overturned all over the county, farmers starting out to do their morning chores are driven back into the house, and the cows refuse to come in at milking time. In Centerboro, cats are insolent to their mistresses and horses go out of their way to insult people on the street. Simon the rat is determined to turn the farm into a dictatorship and Mr. Camphor has been persuaded (much against his better judgment) to run for governor of New York State. Herb Garble shows up, Jinx defects to the enemy (or does he?), and Freddy - that inimitable pig! - goes to work as the political boss of Otesaraga County.

Freddy and Simon the Dictator is classic Brooks, in which the master of barnyard hilarity has a lot of fun satirizing politics and - especially - politicians. Download and start listening now!

    " We have listened to the ENTIRE series. The narrator is FANTASTIC!! While some are a bit better than others, there isn't one we didn't LOVE. One of the all time classic series in children's literature - I CAN'T believe I had never heard of them before! "
