I remember having a couple teachers in elementary school who were crazy about Judy Blume. And I'm pretty sure I even read a couple of her books. Recently I thought I'd give her another try. I was pleased with this one, although like the Lois Lowry books, I found myself getting a little antsy. There's only so much "little kid behavior" that you can smile at. After a few CDs of it you're starting to ache for characters that behave rationally and use four-syllable words. Still, Judy Blume did a great job of reading this one on CD and had me laughing quite a bit. Fudge swallowing Dribble did seem a little far-fetched, though...do you know how small a three-year old esophagus is? That must have been one tiny turtle. I hope the rest of these books have more of a linear plot, or I think the Judy Blume comeback will be short-lived.
