Three Words: Hilarious, Sprout-tastic and Entertaining

Mini Review: This book had me smiling and laughing the entire time. Freddy lives with Grandad and survives mainly on a strange diet of sprouts. His parents are sprout farmers in Outer Castonga- or are they?

One of the funniest aspects of this book is that, as the reader, we are fully aware of what is happening around Freddy. His parents are actually spies and there are certain characters in and around him who are there to either protect him or use him to find secrets.

Freddy, in his innocence, accidentally foils plots around every twist and turn! This was grabbed by both my children when it arrived and has been passed around the whole family, all of us chuckling and thankful we only eat minimal amounts of sprouts!
