Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Written by Judy Blume • Illustrated by Roy Doty

This book is about a boy named Peter with a little brother named Fudge. Fudge gets into a lot of trouble. Like when Fudge thought he was a bird and he knocked out his teeth. "Peetah" thinks he's a fourth grade nothing. Fudge once put stamps all over Mr. and Mrs. Juicy-O's suitcase. Then he scribbled on Peter's poster. After he wouldn't eat his food, his dad put Fudge's food on his head, he said "EAT IT OR WEAR IT".

My favorite part was when Fudge ate Dribble, Peter's turtle. I liked it because it was really funny! I thought Fudge was a goofy character. He did crazy things. Even though he did bad things, I liked his character. The drawings in the book went along with the words really well.

I recommend this book because it was funny. All kids would like this book!
