#READ BOOK È Wiggins for President ô eBook or E-pub free

Excelente, nunca antes habia escuchado sobre este autor, o sobre esta saga de libros infantiles.Toco un tema como la politica de forma divertida, entretenida y curiosa Mostrando concepto no simples para un ni o pero que seguro lograr entender.Lo recomiendo, incluso para adultos Walter R Brooks is perhaps one of the most underappreciated writers of the 20th Century His Freddy the Pig series may have been written for children, but the ideas and themes dealt speak across age ranges Take this work, Freddy the Politician Brooks writes a political satire, in my opinion, on par with Animal Farm In fact, if this book were better known it would be effective than Orwell work Brooks is a master humorist and knows how to lampoon politics while seeming like a simple children s writer all the while His other works of political nature, Freddy and Ignormus and Freddy and Simon the Dictator are also excellent examples. #READ BOOK É Wiggins for President × It All Started In When A Group Of Animals

Dimsey, The Editor Of The Guardian, Is Ousted For Publishing News Of Bean Farm In The Local Newspaper To Ensure That Those Who Are Interested Might Still Learn Of All The Goings On, Freddy Takes It Upon Himself To Found A Newspaper Of His Own And Calls It The Bean Home News, The Basis For The Current Freddy Fan Club Newsletter It Turns Out That Being A Newspaperman Isn T Quite As Easy As Freddy Thought It Might Be, But With Typical Aplomb He Manages To Burn The Wires When Animals Decide to Take Responsibility The Bean farm animals, including the cat Jinx, the dog Georgie, the cow Mrs Wiggins, a spider couple called the Webbs, four mice called Eek, Quick, Eeny, and Cousin Augustus, and the brilliant but erratic Freddy the Pig, decide that the best way to prove to Mr Bean that they are capable of taking responsibility and running the farm so that he and Mrs Bean may vacation in Europe is to start both a bank and a republic Because they know nearly nothing about money or politics, complications quickly arise Luckily, it seems at first, they are assisted in their endeavors by John Quincy, a woodpecker blown in to their upstate New York farm on a strong wind from the nation s capital, and by his father Grover and son X John Quincy s family lives in a tree at the White House, and hence name the male children after US presidents X has to wait for a new one to be elected because all the former presidents names have been used Well versed in DC society and politics, the woodpeckers feel superior to the backwater Bean farm animals of New York State, though they decide to stay for the tender and tasty bugs in the trees there And soon enough they are scheming to take over the First Animal Bank and the First Animal Republic, or FAR Woodpeckers always have a determined look Brooks uses the campaign for FAR president to satirize American elections, including rival political parties the Bean animals Farmers Party vs the woodpeckers Equality Party , campaign speeches featuring impossible promises Grover says he ll install revolving doors in the henhouse , voter population manipulation when woodpeckers invite flocks of birds to stay in the woods around the farm during the election, Freddy and company get field mice and other small animals to stay on the farm , election prediction on the eve of the vote Freddy calculates a favorable result and writes a newspaper article celebrating his hoped for victory of Mrs Wiggins , election fraud the vote counting scene is priceless It s all entertaining and funny.Mrs Wiggins laughs off the notion that A cow s place is in the home and runs for president She fashions the FAR flag from a pair of Mr Bean s old overalls, nightshirt, and underwear, and its resemblance to the Star Spangled Banner makes me suspect Brooks of satirizing flags and patriotism Freddy, who is not very warlike, says, Personally, I can t imagine going into battle under any kind of a flag It s interesting to note that Freddy the Politician 1939 preceded Orwell s Animal Farm 1945 , especially when Grover becomes Imperial Grover, using a clockwork boy, heron and hawk bodyguards, and an obedient army of animals to start annexing neighboring farms so as to build an animal empire nested inside the USA Published two years before America would enter World War II, Brooks novel is a pacifist book, espousing ideas like, Let us give up this dream of empire and cultivate the arts of peace Mrs Wiggins would be the best president because, as she tells the animals, The thing I d like you to do best is to just go on doing the things you want to do Mrs Wiggins other virtue is her sense of humor When she disrupts Grover s demagoguery by laughing, he scolds, Laughter is a destructive element It has no place in a government But of course Brooks means precisely the opposite, because like his other Freddy books, this one celebrates the power of laughter The humor takes many forms In addition to political and cultural satire, Brooks indulges in slapstick as when Freddy jumps on a bicycle and flies off downhill while forgetting how to use the brakes , plays with language as when Jinx asks John Quincy, Are you trying to tell me you don t know where the state of New York is and the woodpecker replies, I m not trying to tell you I am telling you , parodies diaries as when a nosy neighbor records the strange happenings in the house of the town banker Mr Wheezer , and writes farcical comedies of manners as when Freddy disguises himself as an Irish woman and flirts with a snoopy detective called Jason Binks Brooks writes amusingly authoritative yet whimsical statements on animal behavior, like Spiders are very talkative, but few people know it, for they have to get almost in your ear to make themselves heard, and they don t like to do it much because they know it tickles And his dry asides are fun, as when Freddy takes a dislike to Jason Binks When a pig has a face like a pig s, it s only natural But when a man has a face like a pig s, there s something wrong somewhere Like Brooks other Freddy books, this one s comedy has a core of serious life wisdom Most brave people are like Jinx They re brave because they re afraid to act scared But he s afraid of me or he wouldn t call me names That s what people do when they re scared Maybe he can t give it to them but he s promised, and that s what counts in elections Kurt Wiese s realistic and humorous monochrome illustrations add much to the physical book, but John McDonaugh adds much to the audiobook, too His voice is husky and moist, and he appealingly reads absurd events with gravitas and serious ones with humor He does a great Grover Southern stuffed shirt , Mrs Wiggins humorous leader , Freddy multi faceted and poetic trickster , Simon sneery and schemy rat , Jinx feckless and funny cat , and so on Brooks doesn t write down to kids, using plenty of difficult and savory words like balderdash, ribald, and velocipede Indeed, I bet that kids miss much if not most of his humor When I was a boy, I read the Freddy the Pig books as interesting adventures, while now I m an adult, I read them smiling and chuckling I am glad to have recently rediscovered the Freddy books after 45 years People who like Charlotte s Web and Animal Farm and enjoy laughing would probably enjoy Freddy the Politician. I liked it It s about how the animals try to start their own nation and how it s done. Debo reconocer que el libro me llamo la atenci n por su portada, ya que nunca antes hab a o do hablar de su autor Por lo cual, debo felicitar a la editorial que se encargo de la edici n, ya que provoc que me diera curiosidad saber de qu iba Pues me he encontrado con un libro fant stico que con situaciones de las m s graciosas y curiosas, nos presenta de una forma tan simple las dificultades que conlleva hacer una Rep blica en una granja de animales. So many great characters in these Freddy books Jinx the very clever feline, Charles the pompous rooster, Henrietta the hen who keeps Charles in line, the very brave cows, etc. MCL Funny This was my first Freddy book, but it will not be my last. 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.
