There was an awful lot of arguing and name-calling among the children in this book. I know that happens in real life, but it got on my nerves. I think Judy Blume sometimes relies on that sort of humor too much.
Despite the title, this is definitely Peter's story. He gets his first crush on a girl and so on.
A super quick read and a fun book.
I enjoyed the fudge books a LOT when I first read them, and still found them enjoyable when I read them again recently. They are humorous yet believable and can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
These books would be ideal for children making the transition to reading chapter books a ...more

I have read the Fudge series so much that I probably know each book off by heart. It starts off by Fudge telling his older brother Pete he is getting married…. There are three problems with this; Fudge is only 5, he is supposedly marrying Pete’s arch nemesis, the ‘queen of cooties’ herself, disgusting Sheila Tubman and, he hasn’t actually asked Sheila yet. Then they set off on a10 hour car drive to Maine for a family holiday with a noisy bird, a barking do ...more
This is another classic from my childhood. Fudge-A-Mania is part of the Fudge series, which I love. In this novel, Fudge plans to marry Sheila Tubman, Peter’s worst enemy. Just when he thinks that things couldn’t get any worse, his parents announce their plans to go on holidays with the Tubman’s for three weeks. How will Peter manage to live through the summer?
This book had me laughing in so many places, making it a very enjoyable read. ...more

My favourite part of this book was when you found out what The Queen of COOTIES meant, I thought it was funny when Fudge said he was going to get married with Sheila Tubman and my other favourite bit in this book was chapter 9 ( Dizzy from Izzy ) because my nick name is Izzy and when Peter met her ( Izzy the librarian assistan ...more
Anyway, my point is, I really liked this book as a kid, and so I decided to revisit it as an adult to see if it's just as funny as I remembered. I have to say, it definately still held a good deal of entertainment value for me. Yes, it is put in extremely simple and concise terms, as it's target ...more

I happened upon this book in the library and decided to give it a whirl.
It is either a book for the younger but enthusiatic reader or a tween looking for an easy read. For the younger reader it is a little long
maybe a result of the fact that it was written in 1970s when children had less TV and no computer games to distract them!
The characters of both adults and children are f ...more
