Freddy the Politician

Our rating: ***½

The Beans are going on a trip to Europe, so the farm animals decide to form a republic and elect a president who can run things in the Beans’ absence. It seems like a good idea, but a couple of newcomers to the farm are scheming to be elected and seize control — not only of the Bean farm, but of the surrounding farms as well. And when Simon and his gang of rats are discovered to be in on the plot, things do not bode well for the election. The Bean animals must stick together and solve this problem.

This is one of the earlier Freddy books, so some of the characters aren’t developed as much as they are later in the series. Nevertheless, I found this a quite enjoyable read. Sadly, though, this book is hard to find now-a-days.
