Have you ever had a brother that always gets all the attention? Well, that?s what happened to Peter. One day, Peter was at a birthday party and he and his friends were playing games and Peter won. He got a turtle. When he got home, he named it Dribble. His little brother Fudge found out about it and went to Peter?s room and looked at Dribble. He thought of eating Dribble. To him, Dribble looked like a snack. If you want to know if Fudge eats Dribble, read this book.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing reminds me of my brother because he always gets attention and my sisters and I don?t. My favorite part was when Fudge jumped off the jungle gym and was acting like a bird because he thought he could fly. I like this book because it?s funny when Fudge eats Peter?s turtle. These are just the two examples that Peter has to put up with Fudge his brother.

I recommend this book because it?s funny when Fudge eats a turtle because he?s hungry. If you have a brother who always gets attention you will like this book.
