       Additional Information  
      When the Centerboro High School football coach mistakes Freddy for a player and sends him out on the field, not even the school board can find anything in the rule book about keeping pigs from playing football-as long as they go to school. While Freddy's going to class, trouble's brewing on the Bean farm. Mrs. Bean's long-lost brother, Aaron Doty, has returned home to claim his inheritance-an inheritance that will bankrupt the farm. Freddy will need all the help he can get from his partners in detecting, Jinx the cat and Mrs. Wiggins the cow, if he's going to find out what Doty's really up to, pass Arithmetic, and still make it to the big game.
