"Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" is about the Hatcher brothers, Peter and Fudge. Fudge acts stupid a lot. One time he jumped off the monkey bars and knocked out his two front teeth. Another time, he smeared mashed potatoes on the wall in a restaurant. Then he put stamps all over Mr. and Mrs.Yarby's suitcase. Peter felt embarrassed by him all the time.

I like the character Fudge the best because he did silly things like when he jumped off the monkey bars and knocked his two front teeth out. He is funny. I felt anxious to read the book. It made me laugh just like I thought it would. This book reminds me of my cousin when she jumped off her bunkbed and knocked her two front teeth out like Fudge. She also went to the bathroom in her pants like Fudge's friend, Jennie.

I recommend this story because it's hilarious! Fourth grade to college-age kids could read this story.
