Actress Moore's exuberant heroine with strawberry-red freckles and hair is back in this second outing. A bright palette and a classic cartoon feel should prove eye-catching, as Freckleface navigates the world of playground activities: “She plays four square and jump rope—good. She plays tetherball—okay.” Conjuring her inner purple monster helps her to overcome her fear of the dreaded dodgeball and make friends with a bully. Those with dodgeball-related trauma may relate, though the bully is none too scary, and Freckleface gets over her fear pretty easily. Ages 3–8. (May)
