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 third in a new series by an elementary teacher who's seen it all.

Freddy Thresher has a problem: a really, really, big problem. His teacher wants the class to do reports on nocturnal animals, and everybody but Freddy has a really cool animal to study. How will Freddy find one? When his best friend, Robbie, says the two boys should have a sleepover and sneak outside at night, Freddy makes a huge mistake and ends up getting his late-night wish in a very unexpected way!

When Freddy falls out of a tree and breaks his arm, he finds inspiration for his oral report on nocturnal animals.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
As usual, Freddy Thresher is in trouble and, as usual, it's not his own fault. Well, not exactly. Freddy just wants to excel at a school assignment that all his classmates find easy, but somehow disaster is just around the corner. A good-natured chapter book for boys, ages 6 through 9.
Children's Literature
In this installment of the "Ready, Freddy!" series, Freddy is definitely not ready. His teacher, Mrs. Wushy, has assigned everyone in the class to write a report about a nocturnal animal. Freddy's friend Robbie, the brain of the classroom, is all set to write a report about his leopard gecko but Freddy can't even come up with an idea. Robbie is spending the night at Freddy's house and they decide to stay up so they can see what it's like to be nocturnal. They try to make sure Freddy's super-neat mom and pesky sister Suzie don't wreck their plans, but when Freddy and Robbie sneak outside, Freddy winds up with more problems than he ever imagined. Because Freddy's last name is Thresher, he's fascinated by thresher sharks and sharks of all kinds, so the word "fin" is hidden in every illustration in the book. The story is lighthearted and fun but when Freddy decides to report on bats, the text reads like a real classroom assignment. 2004, The Blue Sky Press/Scholastic, Ages 6 to 9.
—Carolyn Mott Ford
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2--This third installment in the series puts first-grader Freddy Thresher smack dab in a classroom quandary-how to get his schoolwork done on time. When Mrs. Wushy assigns an oral report about a nocturnal animal, the boy goes overboard with his research and ends up with a broken bone in the middle of the night. Alas, the cast on his arm isn't enough to postpone the due date, but his sister and best friend help him to pull through and complete his project. McKinley's illustrations exaggerate Freddy's predicaments and underscore the sometimes nasty personalities of his sister and a classmate. Their hostile intrusions spice up this otherwise bland but solid story.-Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Second Grade reader's and writer's workshop of Freddy Series

    My second grade class loves to hear of the adventures that Freddy will take them on. This book focused on what happens when you don't do your home assignments in a timely fashion. The children can relate to the text in many ways, the bully and the best friends along with the help from Freddy's sister bring more reality to the story. The book is great for a prompt during a writer's workshop or reader's workshop. The students love to make predictions of Freddy's next move. In this story my class predicted that he would hurt himself but they were surprised when he broke a body part!

    a mom who LOVES this series

    I bought this book for my 1st grade son through a book club at school. Thought we'd take a chance on a new series. What a find!!! My son can't wait to read them at bedtime. We recommend them to everyone we see. As an added bonus, every other page, has a picture on it and hidden somewhere in the picture is the word 'fin'. After we read the page, we try to find the word. the only down side is that only 3 books are out right now, but a 4th one is coming, days after Christmas. Buy all 3 books - you'll go through them very fast!
