Watch out, Junie, there's a new kid on the block! It's Freddy Thresher, a first grader who knows it's a jungle out there. A new chapter book series written by an elementary teacher who's seen it all! Freddy Thresher has a problem: a really, really, big problem. He never has anything cool to bring for show-and-tell. This week, his best friend, Robbie, has brought the most amazing artifact to share: a real alligator head. How will Freddy come up with anything as cool as that? Good news! Later that day, he finds something very unusual and exciting. If only he can get it to school without his mom, "The Neat Freak," finding out, Freddy will be the King of Show-and-Tell!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Freddy is the appealing child at the center of the "Ready, Freddy" series and in this chapter book, he is determined to bring something cool to share for show-and-tell. An after-school visit to Freddy's tree house results in the discovery of a baby bird with a broken wing. Freddy cares for the bird and brings it to class and becomes the King of Show-and-Tell. Within this simple storyline are many reasons for the success of the book. Credible, first-grade classmates surround Freddy, such as fussy Chloe, bully Max and sidekick Robbie. The dialogue is plentiful and carries the story smoothly. The story's tension comes from Freddy keeping the bird hidden from his mother all weekend. The black and white line drawings all contain a hidden word for readers to find. "Fun Pages" follow the story and provide information and activities appropriate to young readers. Bring Freddy to primary grade students and he will promote interest in reading. 2004, The Blue Sky Press/Scholastic Inc, Ages 6 to 9.
