Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Abigail (the Great One) and Jake (the Pain) are back. The theme for this book is traveling, whether it is as close as the local mall, showcasing the Pain's attempt to walk down the up escalator, or as far as the Florida Everglades, where the Great One tries to keep from being bitten by alligators by wearing her leather cowboy boots. An emergency room trip to get a pussy willow removed from the Pain's nose will make readers laugh out loud. The nine short stories beautifully capture the experiences of siblings who love one another but who don't always get along. Their long-suffering cat, Fluzzy, gets his own chapter at the end. Stevenson's drawings perfectly complement the tales. Blume has delivered another funny story collection about two memorable characters.—Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA

From Booklist

The Pain (little brother) and the Great One (older sister) return in a third set of adventures that takes them on the road. There’s a trip to the beach that involves boogie boards and wolf masks, a visit to the county fair and a ride on the Gravitron, and a stop at the hospital when Jacob, the Pain, sticks a pussy willow up his nose. Then Jacob goes missing at the mall, and the sibling relationship shows its true mettle. As always, Blume gets right to the heart of children’s concerns and relationships. Here, Stevenson’s line artwork adds to the fun. Grades 3-5. --Ilene Cooper --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

More About the Author

Judy Blume spent her childhood in Elizabeth, NJ, making up stories inside her head. She has spent her adult years in many places, doing the same thing, only now she writes her stories down on paper. Adults as well as children will recognize such Blume titles as: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret; Superfudge; Blubber; Just As Long As We're Together; and Forever. She has also written the best-selling novels Wifey; Smart Women; and, Summer Sisters. More than 75 million copies of her books have been sold, and her work has been translated into twenty-six languages.
She receives thousands of letters each month from readers of all ages who share their feelings and
concerns with her.
Judy received a B.S. in education from New York University in 1961, which named her a Distinguished Alumna in 1996, the same year that American Library Association honored her with the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Achievement. She has won more than ninety awards, none more important than those coming directly from her youngest readers.
She serves on the boards of the Author's Guild, currently as Vice President; the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, where she sponsors an award for contemporary fiction; and the National Coalition Against Censorship, working to protect intellectual freedom. In Spring 2002, Judy was a spokesperson for the Cheerios "A Book for Every Child" literacy campaign which benefited Reading is Fundamental, America's largest literacy organization. She is also the founder and trustee of The Kids Fund, a charitable and educational foundation.
Judy's first book in the Fudge series, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, was published in 1972. She is thrilled to be celebrating its 30th Anniversary with the publication of Double Fudge. Just as generations of fans have loved the Fudge books, generations of Judy's family have inspired them. Thirty years ago, Fudge was inspired by her son, Larry, and now Double Fudge was written at the request of her grandson, Elliot.
Judy lives on islands up and down the East Coast with her husband George Cooper. They have three grown children and one grandchild.

They are a "treasure" as all of Judy Blumes books are.
Elizabeth Clark
I bet you can't guess who got into trouble there, but if you are familiar with the Great one and the Pain, perhaps you can guess!
D. Fowler
Our 6 and 8 year old children eagerly look forward to releases of "The Pain and The Great One" cds.

My Daughter loved all of these the pain and the great one stories. Simple tales of sibling rivalry are just what the doctor ordered.

I bought this for my daughter who comes from Thailand. As she was just learning English this held her interest and other than bugging me every 5 minutes as to how to pronounce a word it was a very good learning tool. Part of a series that she devowered.
