Sometimes life in the Hatcher household is enough to make twelve-year-old Peter think about running away. His worst problem is still his younger brother, Fudge, who hasn\'t changed a bit since his crazy capers in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. If you ask Peter, Fudge is just an older and bigger pain.

Then Peter learns that his mom is going to have a baby and the whole family is moving to Princeton for a year. It will be bad enough starting sixth grade in a strange place and going to the same school as Fudge. But Peter can imagine something even worse. How will he ever survive if the new baby is a carbon copy of Fudge?

From The Critics
Children's Literature - Stacey King
Perhaps Blume's most loveable children's novel, Superfudge picks up from where Tails of a Fourth Grade Nothing leaves 12-year-old Peter, his 4-year-old brother Fudge, and the rest of the Hatcher family. As if Fudge hasn't caused enough problems already, now Peter's parents are planning on moving to the country for a whole year and having another baby. Will Peter have another tiny version of Fudge on his hands? The story chronicles these and other familiar growing pains for adolescents, as well as some less-than-typical issues, like the Hatchers' friendly neighbor who may or may not eat worms. Parents will love reading the Fudge stories to a captive audience, and children will laugh out loud at the hysterical reenactment of typical family situations. 2003 (orig. 1980), Puffin/Penguin, Ages 5 to 12.
