Freddy Stories

Foreword Review — Spring 2012

A simply illustrated graphic novel about the everyday occurrences in a unique little girl’s life: Freddy hides from the guests at her birthday party, is mistaken for a boy, and likes to play in the dirt. She lives with her mom and her dog, Frank; is self-sufficient; and is drawn to other kids who don’t easily fit in. In Freddy’s world, borrowing flour from her uncle leads to shaking her bootie and tasting beer. Antihero Freddy encourages her readers to value what is special about themselves. Unspectacularly wonderful. Ages nine to thirteen.
