Freddy and his friends return from a riding trip through New England only to be met by a cool reception from the citizens of Centerboro. Freddy isn't too concerned about it until he receives a message in the middle of the night from his old client and friend, Mrs. Peppercorn. Terrible things have been going on-gardens raided, bicycles stolen, houses broken into, and even more alarming, threatening notes demanding protection money! When Freddy-with the help of Uncle Ben, the farm animals and their very own Dragon- face the crime wave head on- the culprits are sure to get their just rewards.

User Review  - Christina - Goodreads

Our second Freddy book. Phoenix is listening to these in audio-book format and he really enjoys them. I enjoy them too, but my attention floats in and out. I definitely recommend this older series. They are good fun. Read full review
