Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Written by Judy Blume • Illustrated by Roy Doty

"Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" is about Peter and Fudge. The Hatcher brothers were in a pretty good family. Fudge was three and Peter was nine or ten. Fudge was really a pain. He was always bothering Peter. Fudge always tried to be like Pee-tah and Peter didn't really want him to be like him.

My favorite part was when Fudge ate Peter's turtle. I liked it because everyone was laughing about it, like the people in the elevator and the hospital guys. My favorite character is Fudge. I like Fudge because he's a crazy munchkin! Fudge reminds me of my little sister. She whacks me in the back with a plastic bat to wake me up to fill up her bottle.

I recommend this book because it is a good story. It's funny and it will make you laugh. I think kids in second grade and up can read it if they are pretty good readers.
