Trying to figure out where he belongs, Peter Hatcher feels unloved by his parents and wants to know what he can do to get their attention and the same amount of love that they have for his little brother, Fudge. From getting to eat lamb chops when the rest of the family eats something else, to always getting his way, Fudge seems to be ruining Peter life. But, for Peter, the final nail in the coffin of not liking his little brother comes at the end of the book when Peter comes home from school one day and discovers that his turtle is gone. No, he didn't get loose and lost, Fudge ate the turtle. Is this the point that will push Peter over the edge or will his parents finally realize that he is around and turn to him in his time of grief over his turtle.

This book is not just great for a fun classroom read, but also as a teaching method on family and how sometimes just because you don't get all the attention all of time doesn't mean that you aren't noticed and that you're unloved.
