The second hilarious book starring Freddy, the superhero robot!

Freddy and the New Kid Synopsis

Freddy LOVES being a robot and using his super-powers. But he’s about to meet someone who definitely DOESN’T think rocket boosters or lasers are the coolest thing on the playground. When Aoife, the new kid, turns up at school, the ULTIMATE CHALLENGE begins, to decide once and for all who is superior: humans or robots? Aoife or Freddy?

To decide the winner, they must navigate chaos in the school pool, an epic tower of terror, and even MATHS… It won’t be easy. But along the way, will Aoife and Freddy discover they have more in common than they first thought?

Fizzing with hilarity and empathy, and sublimely dynamic, Neill Cameron’s books celebrate unity, uniqueness and diversity.
