Audible Editor Reviews

First-grader Freddy Thresher is always having problems, and this time it's his homework. Everyone in his class has found a cool nocturnal animal to study for their latest project, but Freddy can't seem to pick the right creature. As usual, his attempts to solve things get him into more trouble than he bargained for. Full of science facts and great for both genders, this tale by former elementary school teacher Abby Klein will delight young listeners. Performer Fred Berman is an inspired narrator with a flair for funny voices, and a knack for dramatic pacing.

    "Series has become a Family Favorite"
    Would you listen to Ready, Freddy again? Why?

    Yes, I don't have much choice. It's my son's favorite.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Freddie, of course. Oh, and his sister. Their relationship reminds me of my little brother and me when we were kids.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favorite scene, just an overall entertaining performance.

    "My kids' favorite narrator"

    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 ;-)
