Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Written by Judy Blume • Illustrated by Roy Doty

This story is about the Hatcher brothers. They hate each other. Fudge is a brat. His big brother wants him to stop being a little baby. Fudge wrecked Peter's poster, and that made Peter mad. Fudge couldn't ride the toddle bike, so Peter had to show him how. That made Peter mad, too. Fudge ate his mom's flowers, and that made his mom mad. Fudge was always getting into trouble.

I like this book because it is funny. It made everyone in our group laugh. I really laughed when Fudge smeared potatoes all over the walls and poured peas on his head in that restaurant. My favorite part was when Fudge did that in Hamburger Heaven. He said, "Eat it or wear it!", just like when his dad did. I have a little brother who is just like Fudge. He gets after things of mine just like Fudge got into Peter's things.

I recommend "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" because it is comical. Everyone who reads it will laugh. You should buy it in stores right now. People eight to adult would like it.
