Freddy and the Men from Mars is another delightful book in the Freddy and the Pig series. In this installment, Freddy and Uncle Ben are getting the spaceship ready for another attempt to fly to Mars when they hear that Martians have landed on earth. They have joined up with Mr Boomschmidt's circus through Mr. Garble. They all know that you can never trust Mr. Garble and he's undoubtedly up to no good. Freddy sets out to solve the mystery of just who are the Martians and what is Mr. Garble up to
Six martians have joined the local circus side show, and crowds are coming from miles around to view them, but is all as it seems? Hilarious and adorable story! Hooray for Freddy and his friends. This is the 3rd book in the series that I've read, and they are irresistible.

Freddy jumps into the detective role to find the missing Martian and strengthen his rep as a detective.This book is a children's book in some ways but the vocabulary is extensive and hilarious. Walter R. Brooks is one of the funniest authors I've ever read, along with Lemony Snicket and Eliz...
The Freddy the Pig books are what got me reading more than comic books. This is a particularly good one, and I'll let it stand for the whole series.
I liked it. It's about how this Mr. Garble makes his own fake martians and then real martians come down to see what people thought were real martians and what happens.
The whole Freddy series recommended.

I have to admit to never having understood these books, and I'm not even sure which ones I read. Maybe I should try them again, but I'm not sure I'd understand them any better even now.
