Nine-year-old Peter has quite the difficult life all because of his little brother Fudge. Fudge is always getting into Peter’s stuff and messing up his plans. Meanwhile, Peter feels completely forgotten since everyone is always focusing on Fudge.
All the times I read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing when I was a kid, I never really picked up on just how much of a brat Fudge is and just how much his parents’ parenting skills led to his brattiness. My 11-year-old did not like the book at all, mainly because Fudge is, as my son says, a demon child. I still like the book, though. It’s pretty funny. I recommend it for kids right around Peter’s age.
