Mr. Boorschmidt's Stupendous and Unexcelled Circus is back in town. This time one of its attractions is really out of this world. In the big ring are six Martians and their flying saucer! But Boorschmidt doesn't stop there. He wants something even more spectacular to offer the audience, so he asks Freddy for help. Freddy knows what to do. He organizes an amazing baseball team. With the help of the other animals from Bean Farm, Freddy will teach the Martians, an elephant, an ostrich, and Mr. Boorschmidt to play ball. What will the other teams think of this strange group? The Freddy the Pig books, written between 1927 and 1955, are childhood classics that have been called the American equivalent of the Pooh series. With John McDonough's warm narrations, the Freddy books are now attracting an enthusiastic new generation of fans.
