Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Freddie, Hector and Tish are the best of friends. They are each different. They share a love of exploring. Their favorite place to explore is the Carrie Lee. The maiden on the front one day begins to tell them stories of when she sailed the great sea. She tells them about a special treasure on board the ship. It is a gold framed mirror. The three friends swim inside and take a look at themselves. Freddie realizes he is different and believes this is a bad thing. The maiden sends them to find the great Flounder Detective. When they see him, Freddie realizes he looks just like him and that it is okay to be different and to have different talents. Once again the author has done a great job of letting children know that it is a good thing to be different. There is nothing to be ashamed of in our differences.
As a mom, grandma, children's choir director and a longtime writer and artist, I love this book! The positive message is one that kids of all ages should receive every day, and the watercolor images are very sweet.
