Description

Freddy takes to the air to save Mr. Boorschmidt's Stupendous and Unexcelled Circus from the malicious comic-book tycoon, Watson P. Condiment. Soaring through the clouds may be scary for some, but for Freddy it's all in a day's work as he takes on flying enemy henchmen, skunks, rabbits, and even the U.S. Army! Once again, Walter R. Brooks has created a sparkling and heartfelt adventure story that will delight grown-ups as well as children.show more
