Description

While Freddy the pig relaxes in his best cowboy outfit and sings a song, he decides that he needs a vacation. He will ride his pony, Cy, out West. He'll see some wide-open spaces and maybe find some excitement. But before Freddy can leave, the excitement finds him first. Uncle Ben races up to the farm and asks Freddy for help. A pack of sneaky spies is trying to steal Uncle Ben's plans for building a flying saucer. Soon, Freddy is riding into one of the wildest adventures of his life, one that will require his most clever disguises! In the Freddy the Pig books, generations of children have enjoyed the chubby but poetic detective and his animal friends on the Bean Farm. Narrator John McDonough's lively voice captures Freddy's wonderful world, where everyone is invited to join in the action and the fun. Also available: Freddy the Detective, Freddy Goes to Florida, and Freddy and the Ignormus.

Professional reviews

"[Editor's note: The following is a combined review with FREDDY THE PILOT and FREDDY AND THE BASEBALL TEAM.] -- These are but three of the twenty-six works Brooks wrote between 1926 and 1955 about the "Renaissance" pig Freddy. Hailing from the Bean farm near Centerboro, New York, Freddy spends most of his time being an amateur sleuth around the neighborhood. These are works our parents and grandparents may have read, and although such things as Postal Zones and the War Department have changed, the author's imaginative plots, settings, and characters are delightful. In these three works we find such things as: Martians (who are about only three feet tall), learning to play baseball and becoming a pitcher's worst nightmare, rabbits and skunks parachuting from a plane (piloted by Freddy) using umbrellas, skunks fighting with quarterstaffs, and Freddy fending off foreign agents trying to steal flying saucer plans. McDonough's reading is sublime. Poised and confident, he reads these works at an even pace, bringing all the characters to life with his versatile and capable voice. Refreshingly fun and imaginative, these works are made especially so by McDonough's narrative skill. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
