Feedback from Evigshed (Sylvie)
Fred discovered that Julie’s parents wish to adopt a kid. Then, he also wants to be adopted … but he falls upon a family … a little bit special. The story is very funny (see hilarious, trust me). It is really worth a watch. If you need a laugh, this is the perfect solution to find the smile again. I love this type of humor. Honestly, if you don’t laugh, you are weird.. Anyway, we are looking forward to follow the next Fred’s adventures.. Fred as a cartoon, it works. It is well done . Spread the word.
