Amazon.com Review

Passed on from babysitters to their young charges, from big sisters to little brothers, and from parents to children, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and its cousins (Superfudge, Fudge-a-mania, and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great) have entertained children since they first appeared in the early 1970s. The books follow Peter Hatcher, his little brother Fudgie, baby sister Tootsie, their neighbor Sheila Tubman, various pets, and minor characters through New York City and on treks to suburbs and camps.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is the first of these entertaining yarns. Peter, because he's the oldest, must deal with Fudgie's disgusting cuteness, his constant meddling with Peter's stuff, and other grave offenses, one of which is almost too much to bear. All these incidents are presented with the unfailing ear and big-hearted humor of the masterful Judy Blume. Though some of her books for older kids have aroused controversy, the Hatcher brothers and their adventures remain above the fray, where they belong. (Peter's in fourth grade, so the book is suitable for kids ages 8 and older.) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Judy Blume has often shocked the delicate sensibilities of stuffy parents worldwide with her straightforward tell-it-like-it-is young adult books containing sexual situations. When I was a kid though, Judy Blume meant only one thing. "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". One of my favorite books, written incredibly well, it captured perfectly what it means to be a kid with a little sibling. This book was a revelation. Nowhere else had I encountered an early reader story that wasn't afraid to say that little sibs can be annoying brats. There are roughly five bazillion books out there written specifically to coax older children into befriending their younger siblings. Far fewer are the books that recognize the difficulties these elder kids have to deal with when they're forced to abandon their personal privacy and sanity for the sake of a little brother or sister. The one book that really spoke to me about this (and was really funny as well) was Judy Blume's 1972 creation. And it reads as perfectly today as it did some thirty odd years ago.

There was Peter. And then there was Fudge. Peter Hatcher is nine years old and has the awful job of dealing with almost-three-year-old Fudgie at all times. Fudge is what a polite person might call a lively child. To Peter, however, Fudge is a holy terror. If he's not sticking green food stamps to full suitcases or refusing to eat until Peter stands on his head, he's leaping from large rocks (to fly) and throwing tantrums in shoe stores. Peter is understandably jealous of the amount of attention Fudge attracts but at least he has his pet turtle Dribble to comfort him. Each chapter in this book is a small story about the daily interactions and adventures of the Hatcher boys.

I read this book when I was in fourth or fifth grade. Now I'm 26, but I still remember this little gem well. Peter Warren Hatcher has many problems, but his biggest one is his little brother, whom everyone calls "Fudge" Everyone likes Fudge, because he's the cute one, but when Fudge becomes a little monster, everyone looks to Peter to solve the problems.
Mr. and Mrs. Juicy-O meet Fudge and love him, but when he shoves Peter's turtle in their faces, Peter's dad loses the account. Mr. Toddle-Bike thinks Fudge is just right for a commercial, but Fudge won't ride the bike until Peter does. When Fudge eats Peter's turtle, Dribble, Fudge gets all the attention, and Peter just loses his pet. In every "Tale" Peter plays the role of the good son.
Judy Blume knows her audience well. People this age have to deal with the fact that they are no longer cute, but they are still treated like they know nothing by most adults. I could identify with Peter when I was 10, and I can relate to him still now.
Parents, buy this book for your kids. Kids, read this book. It's funny, touching, and will stay in your head for the rest of your lives.

The Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is about a boy who has some hectic times with his brother. The setting was like any old ordinary town. The main character was Peter, an ordinary fourth grader. I really like Peter's brother Fudge. My favorite part is when Fudge eats a turtle. It's really funny. The thing that I think Peter learned was patience. I liked Peter the main character because he is an ordinary fourth grader like me. I would recommed this book to a friend to explain why your litte brother or sister do the things theydo.If you like this book you may also enjoy some other books by Judy Blume such as Fudge-A-Maina.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is a great book, which many children can relate to. It is about a little boy named Peter, who is in the fourth grade, and his little brother Fudge, who is only three years old. Fudge is very bad and pulls off many disastrous and embarrassing stunts, but to everyone else he is just an angel. He is always messing up Peter's stuff, but all everyone else is worried about is poor, little Fudge. Peter feels as if no one cares about him and that he is just a fourth grade nothing. Many children are put in this situation when they have younger siblings. By reading this book, children can see that they are still loved and that being older isn't always a bad thing.
This book is really an excellent and fun book. I remember having it read to me when I was in elementary school and loving it then. Now I reread it for a college class and still think that it is great. This is a book that children will definitely enjoy and if any adults want to read a children's book, they will certainly have a few good laughs as well!

TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE NOTHING
By Natalie
Watch out! Here comes an out of this world
Two-year-old. If you read Tales of a Fourth
Grade Nothing you�ll see how much of a hazel
Fudge can be and his brother Peter�s had enough.
You�ll laugh until you cry with this hilarious book
And many others like Superfudge and Fudge-a-Mainia
By Judy Blume illustrated by Roy Doty.
The beginning starts with Peter getting a new turtle named Dribble and Fudge is just fascinated by it. In fact, you�d think it would be better if Peter had just said no to the turtle. Well, Fudge goes through many experiences with or without Peter�s turtle. Whether he�s scribbling all over Peter�s homework or throwing a temper tantrum in the shoe store Fudge can be a blast.
Some of the characteristics that Fudge has are annoying and troublesome. I know because in the book Fudge lost his two front teeth. Can you guess how that happened? And Peter, I�d say some of the characteristics about him are generous and polite. I know because when Peter�s dad made an egg omelet with a dozen eggs and Peter tried it all he said was "tastes great dad".
This realistic fiction book reminds me of Junie B. Jones. They just want to be the center of attention. Fudge also reminds me of my little sister their never far from trouble. I think this book is one of the funniest books I�ve ever read and I recommend this book because when you read it you�ll see that with Fudge anything can happen.
