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. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
