Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Written by Judy Blume • Illustrated by Roy Doty

This story is about Farley and Peter, the Hatcher brothers. They live in New York City. Farley (aka Fudge) is the brat. He always plays with his brother's turtle when he knows he's not supposed to do that. Peter doesn't like Farley. When Fudge had his party, Peter had to entertain his weird friends. Another time, Fudge ruined Peter's poster for school.

My favorite part was when Fudge ate his brother's turtle. I think it was pretty stupid to swallow an animal like it was candy or something. I like the character Fudge the best because he is so funny. When he tried to fly like a bird and then he lost his to front teeth, I laughed a lot. Fudge reminds me of my litte cousin. She's a dingbat too. She always follows me around like Fudge followed Peter.

I recommend this book because Fudge is crazy and silly. You'll be glad you read it. People eight to an adult can read it.
