Envious because Robbie always brings the most exciting things to school for show-and-tell, Freddy rescues a baby bird that has fallen from its nest and has to find a way to get it to school without his mother or teacher noticing.
Freddy is unhappy about playing the turkey in his first-grade Thanksgiving Day play, especially with Max bullying and teasing him, but his grandfather and principal both give him ideas for making the part fun.
In "Don't sit on my lunch", Freddy Thresher knows that Max Sellars is the biggest, meanest bully in the whole first grade. The best way to g et along with Max is to stay out of his way. In "Shark tooth tale", Freddy Thresher has found the fossilized shark tooth of his dreams, but it costs fifty dollars! He wants it more than anything in the whole world so he sets out to work hard and earn the money all on his own.
