Genre: Middle grade lit
Synopsis: Freddy the pig is tired of living in a small barn during the winters. But his friend the rooster suggests migrating to the south just like the flying birds do, so he and a couple friends decide to take off and soak up some rays while the winter comes to the north. Along their way, they make some friends, some enemies, some money, and even ore–and that’s just before they hit Florida!
Review: This was such an entertaining book. Apparently this series was super popular back in the day (and back in my childhood–Tori, I’m looking at you!), so I was truly surprised I didn’t hear of it sooner than I did. This was a fun little romp along the east coast, and it was great watching Freddy and his pals meet the president, outwit some crocodiles, and find some gold. This is one of the few books from the past that has actually….aged really well. So, kudos to you, Freddy!
