Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is one of the funniest well written books you will ever read! Judy Bloom really makes the book seem real, so you think... is there really a Peter Hatcher with his little brother,Fudge, out there? Could all this really have happened to someone? When all the questioning goes through your head and you finish the book, you wish there was more to read and you CANNOT wait to read the next book in the series.

I remember reading this as a child and loving it. My 8 year old son has recently checked this out from the library, so I re-read it and found I still love it. My son is totally enjoying it, too! Tons of laughs!!

Living with his little brother, Fudge, makes Peter hatcher feel like a fourth Grade nothing.

Whether he's throwing a tempre tantrum in a shoe store, smearing mashed potatoes on the walls at Hamburger Heaven, or scribbling all over Peter's homework, Fudge is never far from trouble. He's a two-year-old terror who gets away with everything-and Peter's had enough.

When "Fudge" walks off with Dribble, Peter's pet turtle, it's the last straw. Peter's put up with Fudge too long. How can he get his parents to pay attention to him for a change?

My 5th grader read this and laughed and laughed out loud at it. He said it was the best book that he had ever read. I have already ordered the other books that have these characters in them...Fudge, Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great, and others.

One of Judy Blume's best, and a great book for a younger, precocious reader. The story of a fourth grader's problems with his incorrigible little brother.

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.)

The back cover reads:
Any fourth grader would agree that Peter Hatcher has a terrible problem-his little brother, Fudge. But the grown-ups in his life just can't see that there is something wrong with a two-year-old who breaks his front teeth trying to fly, decides that he is a dog, goes on a no-eat strike, and scribbles all over his brother's homework.

Peter is always asked to perform so that Fudge will be less of a terror: like standing on his head so that Fudge will laugh; opening his mouth for his mother to pop food into; or convincing Fudge that pedaling a Toddler-Bike is fun, so that hw will ride for a TV commercial.

But, Peter feels unappreciated and he is finding his brother harder and harder to take. When Fudge gets at his pet turtle, Dribble, that is the living end. What happens next, and how Peter's parents save the day, make for a mixture of hilarity and a little more understanding on everyone's part.

I requested this book/ series for my 1st Grader son (7& a half years old) bc I remembered it being one of the first books I read when I was his age which I really enjoyed. So much in fact that it helped me to fall in love with the world of books and reading. I was very pleased and impressed to see him pick it up, read a chapter (one of his daily duties/chores is to read 1 chapter a day), and then read another chapter, voluntarily, and another and another. Mission accomplished, and I am giving myself a proverbial pat on the back! :)
