Once again, Ready Freddy Thresher has "a problem - a really, really big problem". In his ninth adventure, Freddy scrimps and saves his allowance so that he might buy a fossilized, megalodon shark’s tooth. Performer Fred Berman - a veteran voice of Ready Freddy audiobooks - again proves himself a stunningly versatile voice actor. Berman captures the warmhearted, exuberant imagination of first grader Freddy, struck with wonder at the sight of a prehistoric dinosaur fossil. Freddy’s snappy exchanges with brainless school bullies and an annoying big sister are lent an air of authenticity by Berman, ensuring that grade-school listeners will relate to the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of Freddy’s daily life.

Fred Berman is among the best narrators for children's stories. My kids have listened to the six Ready Freddy stories over and over for more than my fingers and toes can count. They probably have memorized all the books already. Fred Berman is a genius in sound art. My kids keep asking me when Fred Berman is going to read more Ready Freddy stories? I hope the new ones are coming out soon. Fred Berman, we love you ;-)
