Children Ages 8+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1956

In a world in which animals and humans talk to one another, Freddy the Pig is the consummate diplomat, navigating both worlds smoothly and keeping the peace. When Simon the Rat incites the animals to rise up against the humans and sets himself up as dictator, Freddy must use his wit and save the day. This story has enough sheer silliness, clever wordplay, suspense, and insight into human foibles to keep children and adults entertained. Sensitive to every nuance, John McDonough is a pleasure to listen to. Without rushing, he moves the story along. Bringing each type of animal to life with the right voice, he captures the silliness as well as the more sophisticated levels of insight.
