by | Read by John McDonough

Children Ages 6+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1939

One can hardly imagine a better narrator than John McDonough. He has a rich, rumbly, big old bear of a voice, perfect for a children's read-aloud. The Freddy books are a natural for this natural storyteller. Freddy the pig is only one of the talking animals having adventures on the Beans' farm. This time around the Beans are headed to Europe on vacation, leaving the animals in charge. But are the smartest animals in New York state up to the task of electing a president of the First Animal Republic? Written in the 1930s, this series has been popular with generations of readers. Very funny and perfect for listening and laughing. FREDDY THE DETECTIVE and FREDDY GOES TO THE NORTH POLE are also available from Recorded Books. D.G.
