This review is from: The Freddy Anniversary Collection: Freddy Goes to Florida/Freddy Goes to the North Pole/Freddy the Detective (Freddy Books) (Hardcover)
When introducing friends and family to the greatest detective alive (Freddy) you will not want to dabble around with just “Freddy the Detective” or you will have to turn around ad go back for “Freddy Goes to Florida” and Freddy Goes to the North Pole.” This is not her order that were written in but it is better to see how Freddy thinks.
Freddy must use some of his best disguises in the investigation. As with Freddy stories there are many adult concepts that are brought up in the story and one must know where loyalty lies and be ware of deceit.
Again the best book to start with is “Freddy the Detective”; it explains how Freddy became a detective, which he uses, in subsequent adventures. After reading a book on Sherlock Holmes he decides he can be a pretty good detective and recruits friends in the process.
The stories are intriguing in them selves. However underlying the story are several real life concepts for one to work out as what's the matter with going to jail if you get fed and do not have to work? What do you do when the judge has already made up his mind before the trial? I especially like the way he browbeats the pore little rabbit during his interrogation. One forgets how intimidating it could be.
Well you will enjoy this story as Freddy must figure out what happened to a child’s toy train and what diabolical plot it is used in.
Then you will want to follow up with the other two books. As with many anniversary collection books there are additions to the book its self such as color plats of the original jacket and 84 black and white drawings.
