superfudge is incredible. we're reading it aloud to grace and completely forgot about the songs that fudge sings! "M-A-I-N-E spells Maine! F-U-D-G-E spells Fudgie! P-E-T-E-R spells Pe-tah! B-E-E-R spells Whiskey!" i almost couldn't contain myself... i was laughing so hard!

Oh Judy Blume how I have missed you. I can't figure out if these stories are funnier as a kid or an adult who has children. I laughed because the stories of Fudge and all the trouble he gets into reminds me of raising two young girls who still keep me on my toes. My family and I share similar stories with the Hatcher family: my daughter chipped her front teeth when she was two, and we have had dinnertime battles where I have used the phrase, "Eat it or wear it," more times than I can remember. ...more

Recommends it for: Young Adults, Young at heart
Dogs, spiders, swimming, ghost stories, thunderstorms, eerie sounds at night, what else? Sheila Tubman fears a lot of things. These things may be trivial to most of us, but to Sheila it was a matter of life and death.

I read the book today as a light reading. It indeed was! I breezed through it in a couple of hours. I would have finished it sooner if I wasn’t laughing so hard at Sheila. Haha! This girl, her ridiculous reasoning when it comes to the things she fears and things she could not admit

Recommends it for: late elementary age to adult
We just finished Superfudge last night at "Dinner Group" (which means that Joe isn't home for dinner, so we read aloud -- don't know how we got started on that tradition, but it stuck.) We read them out of order, so this one falls somewhere in the middle of the series of Peter Hatcher, his little brother Fudge, his neighbor Sheila Tubman, dog Turtle, and now myna bird Uncle Feathers who cries out "Bonjour, Stupid," whenever possible. Judy Blume manages to create such realistic, loveable ...more

Tales of the fourth grade nothing can be used to teach about families and the influence older siblings can have on younger siblings. Chances are, there will be many of both in the classroom. I remember my second grade teacher reading all of the Fudge books aloud to us, and I remember them being a lot funnier. I was kind of disappointed. The children also did a group project in the book. That being said, you can also use it to teach about group projects.

I love Peter and Fudge! I remember having Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing read to me in school as a 2nd or 3rd grader, and I have shared them with my kids. Of course, I had to explain things like the green stamps and I pointed out that there is no way Peter would ever be allowed to "be in charge" of Fudge in Central Park in current days, but it's still a great story with a great message to kids.

I loved these books growing up! I was disappointed when I tried to find them for my children that yhe language had been "updated". I understand that it will appeal to more children this way but I like to talk to my children about what thy/we read, they get a historical petpective. I know it isn't exactly ancient history but we can teach children about old technologies and such. I feel like they can learn from it.

I remember reading this book as an elementary student. I was fascinated by this authors series books and tried to read them all. I really enjoy reading these books and have a text to self moments on how these brothers bonk heads with each other growing up, reminds me of me and my sisters. Really great read!

I loved these books they are very good. I wold recommend this book to grade 3's and up. My favorite book in this series would be super fudge because, there is always
surprises and because, fudge is so funny at home and at school. But I don't really like the
part when peter and Joanna kiss under the mistletoe.

My boys and I just finished reading them. I remembered loving them as a child and I have to say as an adult they did not disappoint. My kindergartner loved and could relate to Fudge. The first two are by far the best in the series. It was so much fun having my boys laugh out loud at the things Fudge would do. I'm so glad they enjoy and find the humor in books.

This was one of the best books I read when I was younger. I can totally relate to Peter, the main character as I have two younger siblings too. And of course this was by far the funniest novel I've ever read.

Great series by Judy Blume, Fudge books can be read in or out of order, great for early independent readers 7-10 and 10-13. Sheila the great is wonderful for girls 7-11. Fudge and fourth grade nothing great for new siblings, brothers, younger sibling adjustment.

We don't encourage our kids to read enough of the oldies but goodies. So many times we move them on to modern trends that are far past their maturity levels. I loved these books. My fourth graders loved these books and couldn't stop reading them this year. Funny!

Well, I first read Otherwise Known a Shelia the Great in I think 3rd grade. So then I read Superfudge, and I realized it had some of the same characters as Sheila the great, so I decided to read Tales of a fourth grade nothing and Fudge-a-Mania. They were funny books, I liked em.

I LOVE Judy Blume books!!! I can't even begin to tell you how hard I laugh everytime I think of the first chapter with Peter Hatcher, his brother Fudge, and the family turtle. Where would we have been without Blume's coming of age tales?!

These books are amazing. Freckle Juice is one of my favorite books of all time. Everyone should read these books at least once in their lifetime.

Fudge books were my all-time favourite in elementary school. I loved all the characters and their adventures. Very funny and just a great read for all ages! :)

How I loved the Fudge series, as it delved into the tummultuous relationship between brothers. They must learn to co-exist with each other amidst the usual social struggles of young children.

i think its awesome because that book is kind of a mystery and also that kind of reminds me when i was 3 or 2.

Okay so I can't remember when I read this last but I remember that these books were the first ones that I really read. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read them to me.

Judy Blume was a fave author of mine when I was little, so I was stoked to win this set at work last week. Fudge is so much fun!

I think these were the first books I read outside of required curriculum. Smart and controvsial, Judy Blume introduced a generation of kids to candid first person narratives.
