Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing

Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing by Judy Blume is the first book of five in the Fudge series, so if you like this, there are more!

Peter Warren Hatcher is a normal 9-year-old 4th grader, until his new little brother Farley Drexel Hatcher (known as Fudge) is old enough to walk. From eating flowers to acting in commercials, Fudge will truly bring a laugh to readers who have younger siblings. This book is funny because of the things Fudge says and does. For example, he jumps off a jungle gym ‘I believe I can fly style’ because he’s chasing “the birdies!” But when Fudge does something TRULY awful, questions arise. Can Peter forgive Fudge? Will Peter finally get a dog? And will Fudge finally be good? This is a book I read when I was small(er!) but I still “reread” it!

P.S: Feel free to comment! I’d love some feedback, or suggestions for books for me!

      Well, I’ve got an idea Michelle. At that time I also liked the Wishes series. It starts with Unicorn Wishes but there is also one called Fairy Wishes. I’ll make that my next post!

    Hi Emily! So great to see you writing about your readings. I will have to show it to Ashlinn the next time we ‘slow down.’ This is a great little book here and the next one we are doing in my Gr. 4 class 😉 I hope they enjoy it as much as you and Ashlinn (when she did it in school) did 😉 Keep up the great writing!
