Fred is not pleased to be in hospital--with a broken arm and two broken legs he can't even look out the window and watch the snow fall. When his grandmother Jackie comes to visit, he tells her what has happened, beginning with how he and and his dear cat Rick went to visit their friend William in the village of Whippy Corners.
Whippy Corners is world-famous for its giant pumpkins, and William's dad has grown the biggest of the all--a pumpkin as big as a car. Soon Fred finds himself riding inside the enormous vegetable in the Halloween Parade, when an unexpected encounter with a big limousine brings disaster. In the end, though, Jackie arrives to make things right.
Fred's Halloween Adventure is a hilarious and touching story of childhood misadventure, and of the power of family to heal all wounds.

"... Makes for a rambunctious read." (Canadian Review of Materials)
"These "First Novels" must be one of the most difficult genres to write. To fit all the necessary elements into this 62 page format demands a unique skill. Then the translation from French, with its idiosyncrasies, into English with its quirks makes these stories a marvel. the plots are refreshingly unique and offer early readers a variety as they develop their solo reading confidence."
