Back cover copy
See Fred run. . . . At least, that's what the book says. But Fred has other ideas, and the resulting battle of wills between the book and its uncooperative protagonist makes for an uproarious read aloud full of surprising twists. Best of all, the patterned text has been carefully crafted so that beginners can read it by themselves--and learn more than fifty essential sight words while they're at it!
With sight words and sight gags aplenty, this is a good choice for children learning to read. -- School Library Journal
