Watch out, Junie, there's a new kid on the block! It's Freddy Thresher, a first grader who knows it's a jungle out there. A new chapter book series written by an elementary teacher who's seen it all!
Freddy Thresher has a problem: a really, really, big problem. He never has anything cool to bring for show-and-tell. This week, his best friend, Robbie, has brought the most amazing artifact to share: a real alligator head. How will Freddy come up with anything as cool as that? Good news! Later that day, he finds something very unusual and exciting. If only he can get it to school without his mom, "The Neat Freak," finding out, Freddy will be the King of Show-and-Tell!
"I have a problem. A really, really big problem. I never have anything cool to bring for show-and-tell!" Poor Freddie Fields! He's already shown his first-grade class everything from his treasure box, and today his best friend Robbie has brought in the coolest artifact from the Natural History Museum. How will Freddie ever beat that? Fortunately, that night Freddie rescues a baby bird who's fallen out of its nest. If only he can get the little bird to school without his mom and his teacher, Mrs. Wushy, noticing, he'll be the King of Show and Tell!
