When I was around 11-12 years of age I used to trek to my local library a couple miles away,rain or shine,or blizzard(common in Ottawa,Canada!) One day the librarian asked me,'Do you read anything else but FREDDY stories?'(I always had the max. four hard-covers allowed ready to be checked out!) They were that good then,and listening to JOHN McDONNOUGH read them now is GOLDEN! I can't think of anyone else who could have been selected for FREDDYs' adventures coming close to Mr. McDonnoughs' fantastic work! His Freddy is marvelous;his devil may care,prankster,Jinx the Cat maybe even better! From Mr. Beans' drawl,to Hank the old white horses' ponderous,low key musings,he does them all superly! They take me back to being twelve again,and Brooks' humour makes me chuckle out loud many times through a listen. They are a dream come true for Freddy fans. Highly recommended. Politian;Dragon;Spaceship;Ignormus,they are all superb,because of John McDonnough! - Ron L. PS-Can someone persuade him to do my fave:'Freddy Goes Camping',some day!?!
I'm 70 and have loved the Freddy books since childhood. they can be appreciated as great children's books and as social commentary for adults. Narrator does well.
My 12-year-old son says this is the most interesting Freddy book and the only one funnier is the one about the North Pole.
