Meet the Cast
Although Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great features many of the same characters as the series, it does not fit exactly in the continuity of it because, as a spin-off , it only focuses on Peter's classmate who later becomes his marital cousin , Sheila Tubman. Originally, the book featured illustrations by Roy Doty , but all post reprints of it have omitted the pictures. The story focuses on a nine-year-old boy named Peter Warren Hatcher and his relationship with his two-and-a-half-year-old brother, Farley Drexel "Fudge" Hatcher. Farley hates the sound of his legal name, and prefers Fudge for any and all occasions. Peter becomes frustrated with Fudge because he often disturbs Dribble, Peter's pet turtle , which Peter won at his best friend Jimmy Fargo's birthday party. Furthermore, Fudge throws nonstop temper tantrums, goes through a finicky phase of abstaining from eating altogether, and emulates Peter's behavior, throwing tantrums if it is prohibited. Nevertheless, their parents dote on Fudge, to Peter's anger.
