Publisher's Summary

Mr. Bean knows he has the smartest animals in the state of New York. He's just not sure they can care for his farm by themselves while he takes his wife on vacation. So to show how responsible they are, Freddy the pig and his friends start their own bank and their own animal republic. But a hotly contested election between a plain-spoken cow and a wily woodpecker might be more than even Freddy can handle.

It's all in the narrator!

When I was around 11-12 years of age I used to trek to my local library a couple miles away,rain or shine,or blizzard(common in Ottawa,Canada!) One day the librarian asked me,'Do you read anything else but FREDDY stories?'(I always had the max. four hard-covers allowed ready to be checked out!) They were that good then,and listening to JOHN McDONNOUGH read them now is GOLDEN! I can't think of anyone else who could have been selected for FREDDYs' adventures coming close to Mr. McDonnoughs' fantastic work! His Freddy is marvelous;his devil may care,prankster,Jinx the Cat maybe even better! From Mr. Beans' drawl,to Hank the old white horses' ponderous,low key musings,he does them all superly! They take me back to being twelve again,and Brooks' humour makes me chuckle out loud many times through a listen. They are a dream come true for Freddy fans. Highly recommended. Politian;Dragon;Spaceship;Ignormus,they are all superb,because of John McDonnough! - Ron L. PS-Can someone persuade him to do my fave:'Freddy Goes Camping',some day!?!
