Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume

syndetics-lcTales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume. Peter Hatcher has a two-and-a-half-year-old little brother named Fudge who is a one kid wrecking crew.  This little kid is constantly causing trouble for Peter in one way or another: Fudge scribbles all over his poster project for school, throws a fit in a restaurant and smears mashed potatoes on the wall, tries to fly at the playground while Peter is supposed to be watching him and breaks out his front teeth, and refuses to eat unless he can pretend he’s a dog and eat with his plate on the floor.  Peter wishes they could just trade Fudge in for a real Cocker Spaniel. Worst of all, Fudge gets all the attention and almost NEVER even gets in trouble for anything he does!  Luckily Peter has his best friend Jimmy and his cool pet turtle Dribble.  But Fudge goes way too far when he messes with Dribble the turtle—I don’t want to give away the ending, but Fudge ends up in the hospital! If you have a little brother or sister, you will definitely be able to relate to Peter’s story—but anybody who likes funny stories will love this book.
