Most reviewers prefer the early to middle books in the Freddy series, but this isn't one of later ones to pass up.
At this point, author Brooks was in poor health. Obviously thinking he might not be able to finish another, he "wraps the series up", finally disposing of two villains, and telling what happens to Freddy years later. (Long after the series actually ended.)
Many of the best characters are back, and the reader is left wondering for a good long time how it is that Freddy would EVER crown his old enemy, Simon the rat.
Wiese's illustration detail seems to vary depending on how intersted he is in the book -- he's obviously interested in this one. Wiki has plot summary and publication history.

Freddy is a favorite of mine. Much like E.B. White, Walter R. Brooks knew how to develop interesting characters and to tell marvelous stories without talking down to readers, so as kids we enjoyed and learned and as adults we enjoy. The Kurt Wiese illustrations are first rate. T

Not just for children, this book does more than regale us with the usual cliches about the evils of dictatorship - it uncovers the darkness in each heart that psychologically paves the way for dictatorship. This book doesn't just poke fun, it cuts deep.
