Why is Freddy such a popular pig? Most readers will tell you it’s because he’s a pig for all seasons—a detective, a pilot, a magician, an explorer, a poet, a politician … you name it, and Freddy will give it a shot!

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.
