Walter R. Brooks (1886–1958) was a staff writer for several magazines, including the New Yorker. His short stories were published in The Saturday Evening Post, Atlantic Monthly and Esquire. His story ‘Ed Takes the Pledge’ was the basis for the 1950s TV series ‘Mr Ed’, but his most lasting achievement was the 25-volume Freddy the Pig series.
