About

This is the true story about Fred, a 12 year old dog who lives with an older person.  She winds up needing to find a good home for him and he goes from tacitly 'stealing' her chicken pot pies and spitting out the peas to moving in with a wonderful family of vegans, who help teach him how to love his peas.  This charming story has a photo of Fred, along with a ReciPea that Fred loves - and enjoys  watching his human family eat (and now he hopes a PEA will roll onto the floor because he loves his peas and doesn't hate them anymore).  This will help many who also hate peas to learn to love their peas, and, hopefully, other vegetables. Written by award winning artist Paula Weiner, whose work has been displayed in the Andy Warhol Museum, the Hoyt Institute, the Monmouth Museum, the Lexington Art League and illustrated by fellow member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Tiffany Whitfield, this book has helped teach children to not only love their peas but count the peas in the book and learn the names of various animals at the same time.  Fred was generously filmed on location at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts by filmmaker M.R. Day (Junior vs. the helicopter, among other classics).  Despite his utter cool factor, he did not act like a diva by demanding  the removal of any green m&m's.  Well, that and they now remind him of peas!

    Fred Level - really, could there be any level more generous? If you met Fred, you'd know that his generosity exceeds his looks and cuteness (i know, sounds impossible, right?) You will get all of the above incentives, of course, but this is serious, so to show you the author's extreme gratifude, you will be receive one silkscreen by renowned artist Anita Kushner (the author's mother) - This valuable piece of art is the author's way of thanking you via her mother, who allowed the author to become the vegetarian and ultimate vegan she became (Ms. Kushner was included in Who's Who in American Art twice, and is in permanent collections in museums and many corporate collections in the world). You will also be included as a character in the coloring book! So you will be officially an innaugural friend of Fred's beyond helping to spread his story! He really can't thank you enough! Of course, also get a book!
