This is one of Judy Blume's "fudge" series books.
This realistic fiction novel depicts the adventures and woes of the Hatchers. Peter and Fudge get a new baby sister. The family moves houses and cities. The book depicts the first year of the third child, Tootsie, and her affect on the Hatchers. Judy Blume is a talented and well-known author who gets her young audience; young readers love her novels.

Superfudge is a silly novel that any student will enjoy reading. The main character Peter goes through some family struggles as well as funny situations. Some topics may be considered a little mature, so fourth or fifth grade is probably most appropriate to start reading this book.

Summary: Peter's parents shock him with the news that they are going to have another baby. Peter is so angry at first because of how his little brother, Fudge, turned out. He keeps saying "you're having ANOTHER Fudge?" Not only are they having another baby but they are also moving to New Jersey so Peter's dad can pursue his writing career. Luckily, once Tootsie, the new baby, is born she proves to be not as bad as Fudge and Peter actually likes her. Fudge, however, is jealous that Tootsie is getting all the attention at first. He does things to Tootsie because of this. The families year in New Jersey is almost over and the Peter and a friend go on a picnic. Fudge wants to go but Peter won't let him so Fudge and his friend come up with their own plan. They ride bikes down the highway to a bakery without telling anyone. This makes everyone very upset with Fudge and even Peter is concerned about finding his little brother. Finally, Tootsie speaks her first works "Nu York."

Argument: This book was another great one by Blume! I think the message from Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing are still there, about an older sibling and little sibling conflict. Having your parents tell you they are having a baby is something that many children of this age have to deal with and the fear of that sibling being the same as the sibling they already have just adds to that stress. Moving is another thing that many children have to deal with. I think this book could definitely be security for those children, reminding them that lots of people go through having a new sibling and moving to a new place and that it does get easier. In addition to that, this book is very entertaining because of the actions Fudge does. Fudge continues to get himself in trouble providing humor throughout the whole book. ( )

This book is a continuation of Judy Bloom's "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". Just when Peter got used to having one sibling , surprise! Mom is pregnant again, and the whole family is moving to Princeton for the year. We follow Peter, Fudge, new sister Tootsie and the rest of the family through their new life in New Jersey. This book is good to read in class because a lot of kids can relate to Peter and his life. Judy Blume has a remarkable way of telling stories from a child's point of view in a very humorous way. There are a lot of good conversation starters here. Such as how to deal with new siblings, how to deal with moving to a new school. My favorite is the lesson that running away from your problems doesn't help

Peter just thought it was hard having an annoying little brother...wait until he has an annoying little brother, a new baby sister, and the family moves out of the city!

Ridiculous that I have never read this book before now. Happy I finally have. ( )

Book description
Nothing is simple for twelve-year-old Peter Hatcher. And nothing drives him up the wall quicker than the off-the-wall antics of his little brother, Farley Drexel Hatcher - otherwise known as Fudge. Calling his new kindergarten teacher 'Rat Face' or wanting to be a bird when he grows up - Fudge hasn't changed a bit since his escapades in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. According to Peter, Fudge is still the biggest pain ever invented.

And now, as if Fudge weren't trouble enough, there's a new baby on the way and the family is moving to Princeton for a year. Can Peter survive a year away from Sheila Tubman, Jimmy Fargo, and his favorite rock in Central Park? Could anyone survive having the irrepressible Fudge as a brother and a schoolmate? Maybe Superman could - but then, Superman never met Fudge!
