Description

That clever pig returns a hero of the gridiron in Freddy Plays Football. And so what if it's all a fluke? Freddy was the best blocker and tackler the Centerboro High School football team had ever seen. In fact, he was so good on the field the Centerboro school board found itself hard put to find anything in the by-laws about preventing a pig from enrolling as a student. Between worrying about the big game against Tushville and the Bean family's troubles with the odious Aaron Doty, the stellar pig has his trotters full!show more
