recomiendo, incluso para adultos Improbably, Mr and Mrs Bean are about to depart for a six month vacation in Paris, leaving management of the farm to the animals In the farmhouse kitchen, nervously contemplating their leap into responsible adulthood, Jinx cat Robert and Georgie dogs and Eek, Quik, Eeny and Cousin Augustus mice resolve to learn about money management and political organization Raging outside if one of those storms that, in the Freddy series, always shape the fortunes of the Centerboro humans and animals John Quincy, a woodpecker from Washington, D C., is blown into the Bean kitchen Impressed by John Quincy s sophistication, Jinx, the dogs and mice ask his advice in founding an animal bank and a republic Soon, John Quincy is president of the First Animal Bank Bringing his father Grover and son X from Washington, the woodpecker forces Jinx bank treasurer and Freddy bank secretary from their positions After taking control of the bank, the woodpeckers plot to take over the First Animal Republic F.A.R Using bank money to bribe the Bean animals, John Quincy plots to make Grover president of F.A.R Through fraudulent manipulation of ballots, the woodpeckers divert votes from the rightful winner, Mrs Wiggins cow , claiming victory for Grover Seeking to force animals on neighboring farms to join F.A.R., Grover utilizes Bertram, the automaton Uncle Ben Bean built as a playmate for the Beans adopted son, Adnoniram THE CLOCKWORK TWIN With a microphone that amplifies his voice, and his prodigiously strong wooden body, Bertram, with Grover in the automaton s control chamber, acts as enforcer Grover threatens that Bertram will tear down the barns of any animals that refuse to join F.A.R Relentlessly hardworking and well organized, but devious and joylessly authoritarian, the woodpeckers are Brooks s negative example of ideal leadership With the help of animal and insect friends, including Jacob the wasp, Freddy gains control of the automaton, forcing Grover from power The Washington intruders ousted, Mr Wiggins takes her rightful place as President of F.A.R Freddy adds bank president to his long list of positions and accomplishments Before leaving for Paris, Farmer Bean says of his animals I ve always said there wasn t no animals anywhere that could beat em for goodness and kindness and smartness too But now I say there ain t any can beat em for responsibility 82 The Bean animals, once again, expell the outsiders that threaten idyllic Centerboro POLITICIAN ends with the promise that Freddy and the commonsensical Mrs Wiggins will preside over a republic whose citizens, great and small, will live lives rich in leisure, poetry, and kindness.My Overlook Press paperback includes a Foreword 2016 by Nicholas Kristof in an age of political disfunction, Kristof wishes that someone like Freddy were in the U.S Senate, standing up for the ordinary person Drawing on the talents of the smallest, most easily overlooked animals and insects , Freddy makes sure that no human or animal is wronged or exploited Kristof travels to the world s trouble spots, putting a human face on victims of oppression As an admirer of Kristof s New York Times editorials, I understand why Kristof is one of Freddy s most vocal fans FREDDY THE POLITICIAN 1939 follows THE CLOCKWORK TWIN 1937 in the Freddy series In the previous book, the childless Beans gladly adopt orphan twin brothers, Adnorniram and Byram The instinctively good, but hideously abused Adnorniram is the emotional center of CLOCKWORK In POLITICIAN, however, the boys are barely mentioned, and they disappear entirely from Brooks s subsequent Freddy books Adnorniram and Byram go the way of Ella and Everett, abused orphans that Bean animals brought back to the Bean farm from their trip to the North Pole FREDDY GOES TO THE NORTH POLE, 1930 In the imaginative world of the Bean farm, Mr and Mrs Bean are surrogate parents to their animals Mr Bean offers advice and support to animals faced with choices, while Mrs Bean cooks, sews, and nurses the sick of injured There is, apparently, no space in Brooks s imaginative world for human Bean children. Freddy the Pig and the other barnyard animals decide to start an Animal Republic and elect a president to oversee the farm while Mr Bean is away on vacation But the scheming rat Simon has a plan to upset the election, and a group of meddling woodpeckers threaten to take over the farm It s up to Freddy to come up with a plan to save the farm I love the old fashioned charm of the Freddy books It s reminiscent of Winnie the Pooh in some ways The animal characters are all interesting and funny The writing style is simple and charming.Freddy is a really hilarious character who can be silly at times, although he s so much smarter than the other animals He s dignified and ridiculous at the same time The election plot really kept me guessing, and I was delighted with the story This is by far one of the best Freddy books Even though I read this book for the first time as an adult, it was still very entertaining Freddy and Jinx are determined to demonstrate to Mr Bean that the animals are responsible enough to run the farm during his absence To do that, they start out to found a bank and a republic Then all that is jeopardized by a birdbrained visitor from DC It certainly has its light moments at every turn such as Mrs Wiggins campaigning from the back of a phaeton, Freddy sneaking into a bank s boardroom, or the fox who can t quite manage to fit into his own home However, it is also a good example of the cost of freedom, and the danger of flattery and largesse I think every child would find it entertaining, so I heartily recommend it.
