Fun read then, fun read now
Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2020
I bought this book on a special one day, remembering how much I loved the Freddy books as a child. Given all that's going on now, I wanted to read something light and fun, and Freddy fit the bill. I'm happy to say my memories were right, the book is just as fun to read now. Fairly short and easy (it is a children's book after all), the use of language in the writing is terrific. Brooks is great at giving each character a distinctive personality.
If you're looking for something deep and philosophical you are in the wrong place. If you want something fun to read, and maybe even read with your kids, you won't do better than this.
