"John McDonough engages listeners from the very beginning of this gentle story of Freddy the pig and his friends. Freddy is a poet whose good nature leads him to the aid of his many pals, including a robin in need of glasses, a boy in need of new clothes, and wildcat cubs in need of an education. McDonough treats the animal and human voices with equal depth and care, giving each character his or her own identity. McDonough brings this classic story to life for all listeners, those who remember the original publication in 1945 and those first discovering Freddy and his friends. W.V.S.
