Annemarie Florian, author and bookseller ~ “Fearless Fred personifies the power of the imagination, especially for the very young. He’s back in this new adventure, now sporting pirate garb and ready to take on fresh challenges – whatever the weather. Prepare to be won over by a jaunty rhyming text and bright and breezy illustrations that together reveal the chaotic charm of the farmyard. This sequel will cement Fred’s character in readers’ hearts, as the small country kid with the big imagination.”
