Publisher's Summary

It all started in 1927 when a group of animals on a farm in Upstate New York decided to travel to Florida in search of warmer weather - and faithful fans of the Freddy books have been joyously lapping up each book in the 26 book series ever since!

Why is Freddy such a popular pig? Most readers and listeners will tell you it's because he's a pig for all seasons: a detective, a pilot, a magician, an explorer, a poet, a politician...you name it, and Freddy will give it a shot!

In Freddy and the Bean Home News, Freddy's friend Mr. Dimsey, the editor of the Guardian, is ousted for publishing news of Bean Farm in the local newspaper. To ensure that those who are interested might still learn of all the goings-on, Freddy takes it upon himself to found a newspaper of his own and calls it The Bean Home News, the basis for the current Freddy fan club newsletter. But it turns out that being a newspaperman isn't quite as easy as Freddy thought it might be.

A pig for all seasons: listen to more of Freddy the pig's adventures.

Freddy and his funny newspaper. Natalie, age 11
I liked the paper because it was about friendship instead of politics. Zachary, age 7

Another Freddy Win

Freddy and Jinx are a great team and the clever stories of what they're up to with Hank and Charles and Henrietta never get old. All ages in my family love a car ride listening to the hilarious tales of things like the first animal newspaper.
