Review: My kids LOVE the Fudge series. We have read Tales of a Fourth Grade nothing twice in the past 2 years due to reader request. I read it for the first time when my oldest was 7 or 8, and then again recently now that he’s 10. He just really wanted to hear it again. I don’t know if it’s because my older kids can relate to the annoyance of younger siblings or just Fudge’s hysterical antics, but they can’t get enough of the Warren family.
I remember loving this book as a child too. On my last read through, my husband was laughing out loud during the birthday party scene, which set me off. I got the giggles and could barely make it through the rest of the chapter. I was wiping tears of laughter out of my eyes by the time it was over. Judy Blume really knows how to write a book that is relatable and hilarious for readers of all ages.
