Reading Challenges

My Kind of Mystery Reading Challenge 2017 February - January 2017-8



Art of Freddy: 02/04/16

Art of Freddy by Walter R. Brooks

Art of Freddy by Walter R. Brooks was published in 2002 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the first Freddy the Pig book. The series grew to have twenty-five stories with Freddy and the other animals from Bean Farm.

As a kid I grew up with Freddy the Detective, book three in the series. It wasn't until my adulthood that I realized there were others too. I've since read Freddy Goes to Florida and Freddy Goes to the North Pole. I also own Freddy and the Baseball Team from Mars (book 22).

Freddy the Pilot looking like Porco Roso

Freddy's stories involve him and the other animals doing anthropomorphic things, even dressing the part sometimes. Freddy has a number of costumes, sometimes even wearing disguises to do his detecting work. There's one book, Freddy the Pilot that is visually very similar to Studio Ghibli's Porco Roso.
