Dear Melvin,
We need your help. Someone has been sending us threatening letters. We don't know who it is. Please come to our concert tonight, just in case.
Sincerely,
Fred of The Grateful Fred

Someone is out to get the Grateful Fred, Melvin Beederman's all-time favorite rock-and-roll band. Can he and his partner-in-uncrime, Candace, find out who it is before it's too late? Or will Joe the Okay Guy turn into Joe the Bad Guy and put an end to the Grateful Fred once and for all?

In this third installment of the Melvin Beederman series, only the narrator knows for sure!

Praise For The Grateful Fred (Melvin Beederman, Superhero #3)

“A fun, flighty caper. Slyly sprinkled with borrowings from superhero tales and packed with kid-pleasing yucks, this copiously and comically illustrated tale is sufficiently full of baloney to fly.” —Publishers Weekly

“Trine's fast-paced, humorous new series will capture the hearts of bright new readers.” —Jody Fickes Shapiro, Adventures for Kids, Ventura, CA (from summer 2006 Booksense Children's Picks)

“Trine and Montijo have given readers an appealing superhero and his trusty assistant. These delightfully entertaining adventure stories are a must-have for most libraries.” —School Library Journal
