The barnyard animals are tired of being cold in the winter. Since Farmer Bean doesn't have enough money to patch the holes in the barn or heat the chicken coop, they are migrating to Florida for the winter.

Travelling to the beat of Freddy the pig's funny songs, they meet with one adventure after another. They find gold treasure to take home to Farmer Bean in the spring. Florida is fun, except for the time when alligators try to eat them for lunch. Only Freddy's cleverness lets them escape with their lives.

Writing during the first half of the 20th century, Walter R. Brooks captured the idyllic America that disappeared with the 1950s. Fans remember him as the creator of Mr. Ed, the talking horse of television fame. His tour-de-force was his set of 26 Freddy books, all espousing the values that people still want for their children: loyalty, sharing, and forgiveness. John McDonough's delightful voice captures the humor and genius of this timeless creation. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " It was a book club book @ school and I never got to finish it, and I'm not planning on it. From what I read, it was pretty boring and weird. "

    " This was a bit of a let down after "Freddy and The Perilous Adventure" but still a great read. It was the author's first of the series, so his style was still forming, and his Freddy character had not yet emerged in all his porcine wit and charm. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellee | 1/3/2014

    " I think this is one of the first Freddy books - he's hardly in it at all. Mrs. Wiggins, the main cow character, gets more page time than Freddy. It's fun, but the later ones in the series are better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlotte | 12/29/2013

    " I grew up hearing about the amazing Freddy books from my older siblings but somehow never managed to read any myself until now! My brother Tim bought me his favourites at used bookstores on the Downtown Mall to get me started. Fun. Tried reading it with Kiera but she's a little young yet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 11/27/2013

    " My father used to read me the Freddy the Pig books when I was a kid. This was one of the best. It's like a road trip, but with talking animals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathie Hagen | 10/25/2013

    " If you're going on a road trip with (or without) children, get the audiobook version. Everyone in the car will love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 10/21/2013

    " I read many of the Freddy books in elementary school in the early 60's and passed my love for them on to my brother who also is a Freddy fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 7/23/2013

    " Another great Freddy book. This is the very first Freddy book that Brooks wrote, so he hasn't yet fine-tuned his characters or story-telling, but it's still better than most modern children's books out there. John McDonaugh does a fabulous job reading these books. I highly recommend this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Piper | 7/27/2012

    " A great read-aloud for children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wes | 5/5/2011

    " The Freddy the Pig series taught me to enjoy reading and writing in the third grade. These books are still on my bookshelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 9/30/2010

    " This is an excellent book to listen to with all of my kids in the car. It was fun and interesting for my 10-year-old as well as my 5-year-old. I even enjoyed listening to it. The narrator was the same guy as the At Home in Mitford series and his voice was enjoyable to listen to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla | 7/20/2010

    " I remembered loving this series as a kid in the 60s, so I reread it - pretty good even now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 6/8/2010

    " When I was first working in a childrens' room in a library, the Freddy books were very popular, but I never read one until years later (when I was still working in a children's room.) This is laugh-out-loud-funny, a wonderful chapter-a-night bedtime story, and just all round good fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 4/12/2010

    " This is the start to a great series of adventures of farm animals, namely Freddy, who is a pig. It is delightful and fun and would be a great chapter book to start reading to young children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 sara | 2/22/2010

    " I have silly fears, like talking animals. This book is full of them. I didn't read it as a child; rather I found it at a library book sale and was amused by the cow sunning itself on a beach. Freddy is a talking pig who walks on two legs. And I love him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larisa | 12/18/2009

    " These are my childhood books. My daad used to read me a chapter each night before I went to bed... They were origionally published in the 1950s.... this summer i plan to reread the whole series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 11/17/2009

    " This is the first book I ever read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce M. Tice | 11/9/2009

    " I am sure I am enjoying these Freddy books now, even more than when I was a kid. And, I liked them then, too. "
