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.

Professional reviews

"Freddy the Pig gets away from the Bean Farm by house-sitting for a Mr. Camphor. Some of Mr. Camphor's belongings get pilfered, Freddy gets framed, and well, the detective pig solves everything. Written during THE War, there are several references to wartime activities and aspects of the homefront that may need some explanation by parents or grandparents. For example, the insects hold a patriotic rally that is a real jewel to hear in itself. However, someone who lived at that time could give more insight into the humor of the rally. John McDonough's reading is sublime. My children and I would find it hard to imagine someone else reading these tales and hope that he and the producer will do all of the Freddy series. We can't wait. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
