Two is a crowd when Peter and his little brother, Fudge, are in the same room. Grown-ups think Fudge is absolutely adorable, but Peter and his pet turtle, Dribble, know the truth. From throwing temper tantrums to smearing mashed potatoes on the wall, Fudge causes mischief wherever he goes!

This book focuses on Peter who is 9 years old and the relationship he has with his younger brother Fudge. Peter is frustrated because Fudge never seems to get into trouble for all of the things he does. I think a lot of kids will be able to relate to this book, and will feel empathy for Peter. ( )

My mom recommended this book, it was one of her childhood favorites. Needless to say, I didn't agree. It bored me, and just wasn't my style. A good book, just one that is not for me. ( )

First words
I won Dribble at Jimmy Fargo's birthday party.
My father stood with Fudge in the tub and dumped a whole bowl of cereal right over his head.
She loves Fudge more than me. She doesn't even love me anymore. She doesn't even like me. Maybe I'm not her real son."
