Endorsements

Part of the innovative Adventures of the Sea Kids Series, "Fast Freddy" tackles the issue of being different, as the new kid, Freddy Fish experiences in his first day at the sea school. Purple Freddy is ridiculed for having the head of a shark and the body of an octopus by his classmates at recess. Miss Mermaid, the teacher, notices Freddy's unhappiness and lectures her students about making fun of someone who is different. Everyone in the class is encouraged to identify with feeling different in some way. Fellow fish students begin to accept Freddy and invite him to join their Catfish Cruisers swim team. In an exciting series of races with the Barracudas, Fast Freddy takes on the race challenge with champion Marcus, of the Barracudas. A hard race ensues, but Fast Freddy perseveres and finally wins with cheers from all his teammates and schoolmates. After the celebration at the Bubble Trouble Pizza Parlor, Fast Freddy remembers to thank Jesus for making him different and special, and for all his new friends.

"Fast Freddy" is embellished with fabulous, flashy, bright rainbow pictures of Freddy and all the other fish and sea creatures, a special attraction that children will love and respond to. A quotation from Isaiah 43:5 precedes the story of Fast Freddy: "Do Not be afraid fdor I am with you."
