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.

Format: Paperback
This book is hilariously funny, but cruel to kids who believe in Santa Claus. I was devastated the first time I read it, when I was about 9 or 10, because of that part. Then I read it again two years later and loved it. Please make sure your child already "doesn't believe" in Santa before letting him/her read it--it's a terrible way to find out "the truth." Other than that, a great book, especially the parts with Uncle Feather and where Fudge asks "Is this a catastrophe?" and the principal replies, "No, Fudge, but I'm sure you'll try harder next time."

Format: Paperback
I picked up this one simply because it had a cute cartoon cover. A short while later, I was totally relating to the story, particularly the parts where the Hatcher kids react to major changes in their lives.

The eldest child, Peter, is trying to lead a normal life, but this is being severely hampered by the presence of his uncontrollable younger brother Farley Drexel, better known as Fudge, and his parents, who insist on making big, life-changing decisions without consulting him first.

Although light and funny, it casually throws in some revelations that you may not be ready to explain, like where babies come from, and the existence of Santa Claus. It also skims the surface of the trauma of moving to a new city away from your friends, having a new baby in the family, and having your parents switch their traditional parental roles.

These issues are skillfully woven into a funny context, but the book can be interpreted at a much deeper level than it first appears.

Format: Paperback
At age 9 I enjoyed this book but didn't like it as much asTales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing. For one thing, there were no pictureslike the previous book. Another thing, I felt like the Fudge series lost some of it's innocense with one of Peter's friends saying blankety-blank (they didn't actually print it out but hinted it) in front of Fudge and his pals. Peter's pal should have known better. I wouldn't recommend this book to really young readers for that reason, and it may be upsetting for some kids because of the fact that Blume gives the impression that there's no Santa. Now when I read it, I wasn't upset because I already knew. But I think it'd upset some children, and I thought it was sad that Fudge lost his childlike innocense by not believing in Santa anymore. So parents, I highly advise you to proof-read this book before handing it over to your kids, as with any questionable material.

Format: Paperback
There's no question that Judy Blume is one of the most celebrated children's authors of all time. But when it comes to the book Superfudge, there IS the question of whether or not it's fair of Blume to dismantle one of the most memorable childhood traditions in a book targeted to young children ("ages 7 and up" on the back jacket).

As a parent of four kids under 8 years old, I can't help feeling somewhat betrayed by an author - even one as beloved as Blume - who would take it upon him or herself to completely cut down the Santa myth without any hint of subtlety or margin of error. For a children's author, this is a very severe stance to take and one that is most certainly intentional. In all my years of teaching and reading children's books, I have come across only one other author who took the same divisive position (Judy Delton's "A Pee Wee Scout Christmas") and the reason there are so few is this: most children's authors respect the wide diversity in the ages, circumstances, and beliefs of their young audiences. Even in books targeted to much older children, authors still take care to discuss topics like Santa in very "cloudy" terms (Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is a good example) and that cloudiness is an act of simple courtesy, not only for young kids who are reading books at a higher reading level, but also for parents who trust that children's authors will treat ANY bordeline age issue with some level of subtlety.

Realistic parents would never expect children's authors to avoid controversial subjects altogether, just as they would never expect to keep their children's belief in Santa alive forever.

Format: Paperback
My daughter is in the first grade and is an excellent reader. She has literally inhaled this series of books. One of my daughter's favorite bedtime rituals is for her to read one chapter of the book to me each night. I was absolutely floored (and completely unprepared) for the revelation regarding the issue of Santa not being real along with the storyline of the main character having "busted" his parents one Christmas when he was three. My daughter is six and still firmly believes in Santa. I had to do some fast talking (and quick thinking). I think my daughter's OK but I'm absolutely traumatized!! We started reading this series upon the recommendation of her Kindergarten teacher after I expressed concern about the frequent use of slang in the Junie B. series. Junie B. is not looking so bad right now . . .
