This story is the sequel to Freddy’s long and dangerous journey home. During his odyssey, Freddy, the fun-loving sea otter, will meet a variety of creatures that will be charmed by his friendly and modest nature. Their endearing friendships are mutually respected and enjoyed.
As with my stories, my primary purpose is to always include the following: family values, life-learning lessons and joyful endings. In short, my stories are uplifting and a joy to read.
Freddy is a wholesome role model with qualities of honesty, integrity, caring and humility. He knows how to be a true friend.
But like all living creatures in this world, Freddy has his lessons to learn. For one, he forgets that there is a fine line between boldness and recklessness. And each time he crosses that line, he finds himself in death-threatening encounters.
On his courageous journey, Freddy will need to find a way to escape the deadly grips of an enraged octopus, a beautiful but devious mermaid, the great white shark and Man-Humans.
Freddy is a delightful story that will bring joy and smiles for the entire family. The story reveals how to live the good life, and for those who can read between the lines, will receive a double treat. Young children, I am told, “love” my stories because they love animals.
Here’s a friendly challenge. Within the story, there are two factors that go beyond the laws of Mother Nature. See if you can find them.
