Freddy the Detective by Walter R. Brooks
One of my favorite characters as a child, Freddy is a pig who lives on a farm in upstate New York. This is one of the titles in the series about Freddy. He and his fellow animals have the ability to speak with humans. Freddy is always getting into one predicament after another. In this book, Freddy’s best friend, Jinx the cat, is accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Freddy and the other farm animals investigate to prove Jinx’s innocence. These books are fun and light-hearted, and stress the values of friendship and loyalty.
