Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
I have never read Judy Blume, but I am going to ask my students if they have and what they thought! Well first of all, sorry I haven't posted a book review in almost two weeks! I started going to my Kindergarten classroom three days a week and I'm super busy! I had to stay home a few days though because those nasty little kid germs got me and I'm sick. Fudge gets into all sorts of trouble! He's three years old and is ruining Peter's life. Peter always has to help his parents fix whatever Fudge's problem is.
Peter Hatcher is a fourth grader who lives in an apartment in Manhattan with his family. The family consists of his quirky stay-at-home mom, his no-nonsense but reasonable father, and a toddler brother, known as Fudge, whom Peter finds extraordinarily irritating. The plot consists of a number of mostly self-contained episodes in the life of Peter, his family, his friends, and his pet turtle Dribble. Both in tone and in the style of humor, the book is similar to the film A Christmas Story. Parents are shown as human beings with strengths and weaknesses that correspond to their sex. Mom is likewise shown as a person with unique strengths, but with occasional lapses in character or judgment.
