"The denizens of the Bean farmyard...demonstrate what is best and worst in the human spirit not by aping humanity's foolish fads but by being sweetly themselves."--The New York Times Book Review

Freddy is Everypig -- he over sleeps, overeats, daydreams, and writes poetry. He's even a little bit lazy. And when he's scared, his tail uncurls. He is by turns a cowboy, explorer, politician, publisher, poet, magician, banker, campaign manager, pilot, detective. Whatever the situation may call for, Freddy always rises to the occasion!
