Publisher Description

Freddy is certainly an extraordinary pig by all accounts. Although he spends his time oversleeping and overeating just like a normal pig, he also finds the time to daydream, enterprise, and even write poetry! Always full of new ideas, he proposes that the animals of Bean Farm start a tour company.

Promoting himself to president of Barnyard Tours, Inc., Freddy arranges an expedition to the frigid Arctic. Freddy, Jinx the cat, Eeny the mouse, Robert the dog, Charles the Rooster and a host of other animals travel all the way to the North Pole. Unfortunately, their plans freeze as they encounter a pack of polar problems—but at least they get to visit Santa Claus!

Between 1926 and 1958, Walter R. Brooks wrote twenty-six books on the adventures of Freddy the Pig. Considered to be one of the greatest characters in American children’s literature, Freddy still enjoys enormous popularity today, and his timeless tales are considered to be the American equivalents of the Pooh stories.

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.
