Inhaltsangabe: Here, together for the first time, are the first three Freddy books that Walter Brooks wrote, in a single volume, in the order in which they first appeared. Freddy Goes to Florida (first published as To and Again), alongside Freddy Goes to the North Pole ( More To and Again), followed by the unforgettable Freddy the Detective-each lavishly illustrated by Kurt Wiese. These are Walter Brooks's first forays into the world of Freddy and his Bean Farm, to which he would return over and over again during the next three decades to create a total of twenty-six Freddy books. With a foil-stamped jacket and color plates of the original jacket and endpaper art, The Freddy Anniversary Collection is the perfect thing for fans and initiates alike: a great starter package, and a great collector's edition.
Über den Autor: Walter R. Brooks was born in Rome, New York, on January 9, 1886, and died in Roxbury, New York, on August 17, 1958. Brooks attended the University of Rochester and, after graduation, worked for the American Red Cross and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. He became associate editor of Outlook in 1928 and then a staff writer for several magazines, including The New Yorker. The short stories he wrote during this time were published in The Saturday Evening Post, The Atlantic Monthly, and Esquire. Brooks's short story "Ed Takes the Pledge" was the basis for the 1960s television series Mr. Ed, but his most lasting achievement is the Freddy the Pig series, which began in 1927 with To and Again ( Freddy Goes to Florida). He subsequently wrote twenty-five more delightful books starring Freddy, "that charming ingenious pig" ( The New York Times).
