Being different isn't always easy but it's easier if you're a bit self-assured, as a likeable seven year old girl with red hair and lots of freckles learns. Meet Helen — nicknamed Freckleface — and her one-time nemesis, Windy Pants Patrick, as they engage in everyday activities and adventures.
Typical in most ways but teased because of her freckles, 7-year-old Helen has red hair and lots of freckles unlike her family. When teased by other kids, she tries to get rid of her freckles in lots of ways but keeps her nickname instead.
Helen (a.k.a. "Freckleface") enjoys attending the early program at school and its outdoor play. Freckleface learns to overcome her fear of dodgeball and a big bully as she discovers her own strong inner resources.
Freckleface is different because of her freckles, red hair and small size; Patrick is different, too. He's large and has been dubbed Windy Pants. Can their unlikely friendship survive grade school expectations of the way boys and girls should play (or not) with each other?
