Review quote

Praise for Judy Blume and the Fudge books: "Each [Fudge book] is packed with wacky earthy disasters that are her trademark and that children love to read about . . . Judy Blume has a knack for knowing what children think about and an honest, highly amusing way of writing about it." --The New York Times "It's a pleasure to watch a talented author like Judy Blume consistently create books that reflect a remarkable ability for combining humor with perceptive insight into a child's world." --Publishers Weekly "Blume has her eye on the fine details of life, whether funny or frustrating." --Booklist "For anyone who has ever been 'burdened' by a pesky younger brother, there's fast and funny reading in this story." --Children's Digest on Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing "As usual, Blume's humor and pitch-perfect ear for sibling rivalry and family dynamics will have readers giggling with recognition.

Flap copy

Living with his little brother, Fudge, makes Peter Hatcher feel like a fourth grade nothing. Whether Fudge is throwing a temper tantrum in a shoe store, smearing smashed potatoes on walls at Hamburger Heaven, or scribbling all over Peter's homework, he's never far from trouble. He's a two-year-old terror who gets away with everything--and Peter's had enough. When Fudge walks off with Dribble, Peter's pet turtle, it's the last straw. Peter has put up with Fudge too long. How can he get his parents to pay attention to him for a change?show more
