"Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" is about Peter and his brother Fudge. They never get along! Fudge always gets in trouble. When Fudge didn't want to be in the Toddle Bike commercial, then Peter had to ride the tricycle to show Fudge how to do it. The worst thing Fudge did to Peter was eating Dribble, Peter's pet turtle. Fudge was really in trouble then.

My favorite scene in the book was when Jennie, Fudge's friend, peed on the rug. It reminded me of my niece when she peed on the step once. I laughed so hard that tears came out of my eyes. My favorite character was Peter. He was the best big brother in the whole entire world. He always looked after Fudge. The best part of this book was when Fudge jumped off the jungle gym. It was hilarious when he tried to act like a bird!

I recommend this book. It made me giggle! It was really funny. I think second and third graders can read it.
