Kids say (1 ):

Julianne Moore's storytelling is inspiring and hilarious (especially when read aloud), and her character Freckleface Strawberry is as cute and indomitable as ever. The story of Freckleface Strawberry and Windy Pants Patrick will sound very familiar to most people, kids and adults alike, especially if they've ever played dodgeball.

The expressive brush and digital illustrations of LeUyen Pham again are the perfect complement to Moore's playful narrative that teaches a gentle lesson. Those who liked the first Freckleface book are sure to love this second adventure, and will look forward to hearing more of this brave little character.
