Summary
"The adventures of Freddy the Pig and his barnyard friends were launched with great fanfare in 1927, and to this day the children's book series continues to delight hundreds of thousands of readers around the world. Who created this famous pig? It was none other than Walter R. Brooks, who shared Freddy's love of travel and adventure, sparkling wit and intelligence, and wonderful way with words. Brooks ranks among the great heroes of classic American children's literature." "Michael Cart combines archival research, firsthand accounts from Brooks's personal files, and interviews with Brooks's late wife to present the first complete biography of the man behind the pig. Much of the series, we learn, sprang from Brooks's idyllic childhood in turn-of-the-century upstate New York amongst a colorful cast of family and friends." "In this biography, illustrated throughout with old family photos, Cart reveals the personal history that informed Brooks's work and offers commentary on each of the timeless Freddy titles. Talking Animals and Others is a long-awaited homage to the gentle genius of this great American author and to the pig who lives on in the hearts of devoted readers everywhere."--BOOK JACKET
