This is the 4th book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I found out about this book from an highly recommendation by Gregsamson who is also a character out of Kafka's The Transmetomographicationer. That buch is about a bug that is a man. Eww. I'm telling you I would not wanna wake up a bug. First thing is where would I poop? Second thing is feelers are creepy. Anyway, thisbuch continues on after Frudgo drops the ring into the lava of Mountain Doom and from there goes on a vacation to Maine with h ...more
This is the 3rd book of Judy Blume's moderately famous series of Fudge. Frankly I read about the series by the time I was ravaging through my Wimpy Kid box set and I took a note to read some of this series when I get a chance. So, why the 3rd book? Well, because when I happened to go to my usual place of book shopping my eyes got caught on this. As all book has a fundge in the name, I thought "What the fudge, at least I will know if others can be read or not". Now lets get to the book.

After reading this book I was rather disappointed. I assume that in the eyes of a 3rd or 4th grader it might be humorous and entertaining. However, to me it was just too dramatic and the story was so packed together and I felt like the characters never really has any time to develop. It was about a young boy and the summer trip that his family decides to go on. They travel up to Maine and share a house with their next door neighbors who have daughter that is the main character's enemy. All of th ...more

A month ago I read "Fudge-a-Mania" in English without using a dictionary. The book is my American friend's recommendation. She suggested to me that the author's books are good for me to read. It was very true. She has written a bunch of books for children. Even thought I read the only one, it was very interesting, and I really enjoyed it.

It's bit difficult for mature English learners to find some interesting books for children in English. I'd love to recommend the author's books for mature learn

In the fourth book in Judy Blume’s Fudge series, Peter and his family must share a vacation house in Maine with his archenemy, Sheila Tubman and her family. Peter must come to terms with the beginning of adolescence by dealing with Sheila and his pest of a little brother, Fudge. It starts off with his mother telling him that the family is going on a three-week vacation to Maine. She says that they will be neighbors with Sheila Tubman's family. His mom tries to ease the shock by saying Peter can ...more
This book is a story about a family vacation that went bad. Fudge has a brother named Peter and they are constantly battling just like brothers do. They find out they are going to Maine for three weeks for a family vacation but Peter's enemy is going to be living next door. Peter is not excited about the trip at all and once he get's there he finds out he is sharing a house with his enemy, Sheila Tubman. Peter also gets his first crush, Izzy and his grandmother finds love in Maine and it's to Sh ...more
Peter and his family spend three weeks in Maine with Sheila Tubman's family.

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.
This was a super quick read and cute as anything. I will absolutely read this story to my boys when they get older. A young boy and his family go to the lake for the summer. Peter ends up in a house on the lake with a girl from his class who he hates - and who he thought was at a cabin on the lake but not in the same house!
A super quick read and a fun book.
Five-year-old Fudge is already planning his marriage. He wants to marry Sheila Tubman who lives in his building. Fudge's older brother, Peter,hates the idea. He and Sheila are enemies. Since Fudge is only five there's a lot of things he doesn't know,so he's always asking questions.
These are books which I remember fondly and I enjoyed revisiting them as an adult. Although aimed at children, they were a nice easy read for me when my concentration wasnt brilliant and they managed to make me laugh

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

This book"Judy Blume Fudge-a-Mania" was an absolutely must read. It feels like when you read the book it is like you are in it and you are in his adventures. It was hard to finish the book because it was one of my favorite book. This book is an absolutely must read.

This book starts off with a kid named Pete and his crazy family go on a vacation to Maine. He finds out that his family gets to share a cabin with his enemy Sheila Tubman. My absolutely favorite part is when he swallowed a fly and he
Peter is trying to have a great summer, but it's hard to do that with Fudge and others. Peter just finds out that his vacation is going to take a twist. He decides to invite someone that is close with him so that the trip will not be so bad. When Peter finds out he lives in the same neighborhood as a baseball legend, he freaks out. Read more to find out what happens next.

I think this book is very good and simple. This book is also short, and easy to read because, the author doesn't keep on goi
Fudge-A-Mania is a good book written by the most famous Judy Blume. In this story this kid named Peter finds out that he is going on a vacation to Seattle with his family. His mom and dad ruin the great news with telling him their going with their neighbors, who Peter does not like at all. News for him just keeps on getting worse. His little brother, Fudge, thinks he is going to marry Peter’s arch enemy, Sheila Tubman (who is his neighbor). What you probably didn’t know was that Fudge was only 5 ...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
Judy Blume- Fudge-A-Mania (Dell Publishing 1991) 4.5 Stars

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.

Superfudge is a children's novel by Judy Blume, published in 1980. It is the sequel to Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. The story is about five year old Fudge whose family has given him an increased vocabulary, and also due to that fact, knows where babies come from, and plans to be a bird when he grows up. According to his older brother, Peter, Fudge is the biggest pain ever invented, but is loved all the same. Peter dislikes his life and thinks about running away from home. His mother, Anne, i

I thought this book was just about Fudge because of the title called 'Fudge - A - Mania'! The book was actually about living with Sheila Tubman and her family up in Maine.
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
I first read this book in the 2nd or 3rd grade. I liked it so much I begged my parents to buy it for me and they did. That is saying something, because back then we didn't have a lot of money for extras.
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

My seven-year-old granddaughter sleeps over every other weekend or so. When she does, for the past several months, we have been reading this book together before she goes to sleep at night. I believe that if I asked her, she would definitely give the book 5 stars. But because she does not yet have a Good Reads account yet, and I do, I'll give it 3 stars.
She has this ability that she seemingly shares with many other children: the ability to read, watch or do something over and over. And over. Sh

Letter to Fudge (creative response)

Dear Fudge,
I know how you feel when you get some other sibling's.I was the second child like you and I know it rock's to be the person getting all the attention but unfortanly we both have a sibling that got born and now all the attention is going bye bye to us and all the attention goes to the new born baby.Having another siblings can be annoying I see because the way you act to Toostie I now how you feel I'm gettting annoyed with baby's!!!.Dont you just hate
Despite the fact that Judy Blume is one of those legendary children's authors I managed to bypass her totally as a child.

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
Sorry, I didn't realize my mistake until like the middle of reading Double Fudge. Since when did Fudge-a-Mania come before Double Fudge? I have know clue, because my childlike mind when I was eight or nine read this after Double Fudge and ALWAYS thought this was the first book. Seriously. That's how it sat on my bookshelf for like a year now. However, now I know, and if I decide to read it again, everything will be okay because I read the series right. (Please don't mention the fact that I haven ...more

Judy Blume created this awesome book called Fudge-A-Mania. In this book Farley Drexel Hatcher "Fudge" the 5 year old hurricane, wants to marry Sheila Tuban, his brother's sworn enemy. Now the problem is that the Tubmans & the Hatchers will be living in the same house for their vacations. Imagine, a huge disaster. Plus Peter's best friend Jimmy Fargo, who also strongly dislikes Shelia will be there too thats not so good. Peter meets many new people who he didn't expect, a disaster. This book ...more

Fudge-a-Mania is another of the Fudge books by Judy Blume. What I love about these books is the fact that they are so relatable to kids. The problems that they face are all problems that kids would be facing in real life. As an adult it is almost comical to read the problems that the characters are trying to get through because they are so foreign and hard to imagine with our current circumstances. Once again Fudge is a pain to his older brother Peter, but this time he has a girl to worry about! ...more

This book is called Fudge - A - Mania. I think this is a great book. I think this is a great book because it is funny. For example his little five year old brother is funny and bad. And it is written by New Yorks time best selling author Judy Blume. And his little brother is a little trouble maker. So this is my opinion on this story.
Megan Mccormick
i remember reading this book when i began to read chapter books and Judy Blume was one of my favorites. the book fudge a mania made me laugh and as i read it again i realized how easy this book is to read and i feel it would be a good starting book into chapter books four young boys and girls.
It was good. It helped me understand the character Fudge a little better and it helped me see the bond between Peter and Sheila and Fudge and the bond with the two families. I think it tells how two people who hate each other get to know each other better by sharing a house for three weeks.
This is what I would characterize as light reading. Another book about the misadventures of the Hatcher family with five year old Fudge and his teen-aged brother Pete as the main stars. Told from Peter Hatcher’s perspective who is quite upset that he and his family have to share the kitchen, bathroom and living room with Sheila Tubman and her family while on a summer trip to Maine. Sheila and Peter are the same age and both hate each other. While on vacation, Peter develops a crush on the part t ...more
