Freddy the detective reading level
Freddy the Detective by Walter R. BrooksReading this book hot on the tail of Tolstoy and the Purple Chair was just a confirmation of the magical pleasure that can be found in books. One minute, I can be sitting with Nina Sankovitch in her smelly purple chair, thinking deep thoughts about the meaning of life and the things that give it substance, and the next I can be snooping around Mr. Beans farmyard with Freddy, Jinx the Cat and Mrs. Wiggins the cow, taking down Simon and his evil gang of rats and foiling burglars that knit their own mufflers! I may never have kids of my own to share these stories with, as my dad shared them with me, but Ill certainly be reading them to my nephews and nieces, as soon as they come along! Walter Brooks was a master of childrens fiction and the Freddy books could certainly be called great literature, as I came to define it based on Sankovitchs book, for they hold gems of truth about life and humanity, hidden beneath humor, adorable characters and entertaining plots!
