Overview

Watch out, Junie B., there's a new kid on the block! It's Freddy Thresher, a 1st grader who knows it's a jungle out there. Here's the fourth in a new series by an elementary teacher who's seen it all. "I have a problem. A really, really, big problem. I want to try out for the peewee hockey team, but so does Max . . ." Bullies are a problem in school, and Max Sellars is the worst one yet. In addition to hassling Freddy, Max also challenges him for the open spot on the peewee hockey team. Freddy's close friend Jessie is a star hockey player, and she secretly teaches him some rules and tricks. In a warm and funny ending, Max and Freddy make peace with one another, and--in a surprising twist--end up becoming teammates.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
First-grader Freddy Thresher has never been particularly interested in playing sports. However, when his best friend, Jessie, comes to school wearing a Hammerhead jersey from her peewee hockey team, Freddy gets interested really fast! After all, sharks are his favorite thing in the world, and that's a pretty cool jersey. Freddy sure would like to have one. Unfortunately, so would Max Sellars, the first grade's biggest bully. But there's only one spot left on the team! Try-outs are Saturday, and Jessie has promised to help Freddy get into shape by then. The stakes are high. If Freddy can't beat Max on the ice, it might be more than just his lunch that gets smashed! Abby Klein's quick-paced book presents a realistic look at school and family life. The finale of this fourth book in the "Ready, Freddy!" series is a little too neat and easy, but the book is enjoyable nevertheless. This should be a good conversation-starter for parents or teachers who want to talk to children about bullying. 2005, Blue Sky/Scholastic, Ages 7 to 10.
