Freddy the Magician

Our rating: ****½

Signor Zingo, the well-known magician, is traveling with Mr. Boomschmidt’s circus. Freddy thinks it’s a wonderful opportunity to learn magic. So when Presto, Signor Zingo’s rabbit, offers to teach Freddy all he knows about magic, Freddy is delighted. As he learns more about magic tricks and begins to put on small shows, he uncovers suspicious information about Signor Zingo. His suspicions are soon confirmed and with the help of his friends, Freddy determines to prove to the unsuspecting inhabitants of Centerburo that Zingo is a crook.

This is one of my favorites of the Freddy books. The showdown between Freddy and Zingo during the magic performance is very hilarious.
