Publisher's Description

The weather, all animals (with special emphasis on the peculiar attributes of pigs), joy and sorrow, the utility of facial features, and a world of other subjects are poetically worked over by the world’s most distinguished pig-of-letters, Freddy—the Bard of Bean Farm.

Whether he’s happy or sad Freddy is ever the poet, and his verse—both heavy and light—has created an international fuss among the less gifted pigs and poets. And if Freddy’s poetry seems a bit hammy in spots, well . . .
