Publisher's Summary

While Freddy the pig relaxes in his best cowboy outfit and sings a song, he decides that he needs a vacation. He will ride his pony, Cy, out West. He'll see some wide-open spaces and maybe find some excitement. But before Freddy can leave, the excitement finds him first. Uncle Ben races up to the farm and asks Freddy for help. A pack of sneaky spies is trying to steal Uncle Ben's plans for building a flying saucer. Soon, Freddy is riding into one of the wildest adventures of his life, one that will require his most clever disguises!
In the Freddy the Pig books, generations of children have enjoyed the chubby but poetic detective and his animal friends on the Bean Farm.
A pig for all seasons: listen to more of Freddy the pig's adventures.

No one but John McDonough could pull this off!

Where does Freddy and the Flying Saucer Plans rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I grew up loving Mr. Brooks,Freddy the Pig series and have collected most of them. This is one of my favourite stories,as Samuel Jackson the Mole is introduced. But,come on,it has a bit of everything we love! Spies;Freddy in various disguises;Jinx the cats' humourous jabs at Freddy;Uncle Bens' inventions,to name a few. It has Walter Brooks humour at his best. The plot and sub plots are excellent;the Flying saucer Plans being pursued by spies;Samuel looking for his lost treasure;Jinx tangling with 'Grisli' and the cannibal ants;as well as Freddy riding Cy!

What did you like best about this story?

Brooks humour and the fast-paced adventure!

What does John McDonough bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

John McDonough captures all the little nuances of the characters personalities. First one I listened to I thought,this is what I knew FREDDY would sound like!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did.....Then I listened to it again the next night!

Any additional comments?

Just a tip of the hat to whoever thought to choose John McDonough to do these fabulous stories! I don't believe anyone could have done them as well as he! - Ron L.

Great book

The Freddy books are great, they deal with complex issues, yet are quite funny and engaging to kids, plus it's perfect for long trip at 3+ hours. Highly recommended
