In this sequel, Freddie has shoes that give him super speed. It's hard to be a superhero and a regular kid at the same time, especially when your shoes give you even more power! Freddie needs an on/off switch for his super speed, so Mr. Vaslov, who created the shows, decides to invent a remote control, but he gets more than he planned. When his young neighbor's ball goes missing, Freddie uses his new powers to find it . . . and Mr. Vaslov!"[T]here's plenty of action as Freddie twice rescues his neighbor's ball, makes excuses to avoid running so his shoes won't smoke and gets stuck in a tree before performing a heroic rescue. Freddie's Hispanic heritage shows in descriptions of food and references to his deceased abuela, both worked in naturally. . . . Boys who are able early readers will particularly appreciate this series." —Kirkus ReviewsJacqueline Jules is the author of numerous books for children, including Duck for Turkey Day.
