Multiple Award-Winning book series helps to build a strong, foundational relationship with Jesus, while teaching love, and compassion for others! Fast Freddy is one of the sea kids that live in the "coralhood." Fast Freddy overcomes the ridicule of being different (half shark, half octopus) from the other kids in his new school. Once they find out he can swim fast like a shark, they ask him to join the swim team. They realize he is a great kid and are happy that he helps them win the championship for the first time. He comes from behind overcoming Marcus who is a formidable threat on team Barracudas. His octopus arms wave in victory as he crosses the finish line! Freddy receives the MVP award, but says a prayer of thanks to Jesus for being different and having new friends.

Fast Freddy was a fun story to read but also a terrific conversation starter. I love books that entertain as well as teach! We really enjoyed reading and then talking about Fast Freddy together. We talked about other ways some of the situations could have been handled by the other kids. Hopefully these are lessons that will stick. This will be a great book to read again and again!!

The characters are charming in this story. The illustrations are colorful and very appealing. The best part is the story which is a wonderful much needed story that deals with a hard topic. Looking different is tough and scary when you're a kid. My kids both enjoyed this story as did mom. I would recommend this story to every parent. Teach your kids early and talk to them about others who look or act different than they do. Renee K from Little Homeschool on the Prairie
The author and illustrator did a great job at the text and pictures. My children enjoyed it and read and reread the story. The pictures are vivid and cute. The last page reminds children to say their prayers ask Jesus into their hearts, which is ultimately the most important thing of all. Linda Galindo, Schelastic Education Center
I liked the message Fast Freddy has in treating everyone as we would want to be treated, even if they are different. I especially liked that Freddy thanks God for being different and his new friends despite that they were not very friendly to him in the beginning. I thought this to be a very important message for kids in embracing who we are, no matter if we “look different” or not. This is a colorful story with a good message that I would recommend to families who want to encourage their children to be thankful for who they are. CraftyBooksheep
This is a pretty adorable book that will help Christian parents discuss the topics of anti-bullying / accepting the differences of others with their young readers. Such a sweet story that's sure to get young readers cheering Freddy on. I was especially touched at the page that shows Freddy saying a prayer actually thanking God for making him different and unique. I also recommend picking up a copy of this book to see the jaw-dropping, stunning illustrations done by Dan Sharp. Angie Fehl
