My son just finished the entire set, and he loved them. The many adventures of Fudge set him laughing, and he related to the tales of being a big brother. I had no idea he would enjoy these so much, but he did, and it was really fun reading them together. Oddly enough, he never once commented about any changes from the original versions.
There are a few things in the books that might be issues for some, like a chapter that gives away that Santa Claus isn't real, and a fair bit of name-calling ("stupid"). However, these are easy to skip over, unless you feel doing so would ruin the story.
Tales Of A Fourth Frade Nothing
Otherwise Known As Sheila The Great
Each book is a precious artifact, a treasure of written perfection, and each character lives on and on, always larger than life (it's hardly ever like this - how many books do you read where not even one single character is interesting?); this applies not just to the main protagonists Peter and Farley Drexel "Fudge" Hatcher either, as you really find yourself caring about long-lost cousin Howie (or "the Howies" as his whole family is called - this includes another Farley Drexel Hatcher, in this case nicknamed "Mini", and the twin girls Flora and Fauna), about newborn Tootsie, even about the hapless mynah bird Uncle Feather (great name). Oh Lord yeah!!
The first two books are not really about Fudge at all, and are the more serious ones. The first one focuses on Peter Hatcher, about his problems dealing with his little three-year-old brother and eventually the fate of his pet turtle (an infamous episode in children's literature if there ever was one), while the second book opens the lid on the complex life of Sheila The Great, who's not as confident as her blustery character would lead you to believe. The later three books are mainly about Fudge and are highly episodic, lacking Blume's characteristic take on the hard issues of childhood that can be found in her other books (and which appear in mild forms in the first two in this series); these books show Fudge between the ages of five and six.Read more ›
