Back Cover: He knows a lot of big words, but he doesn’t know where babies come frm. He’s never heard of a stork, but he plans to be a bird when he grows up. He’s Superfudge, otherwise known as Farley Drexel Hatcher. And, according to his older brother, Peter, the biggest pain ever invented. Among other things.
As fans of Tales of Fourth Grade Nothing already know, nothing is simple for Peter Hatcher. He is far from overjoyed at the turn the family fortunes are taking. It looks as if Peter wil be spending sixth grade far from Central Park, Sheila Tubman, Jimmy Fargo, and Henry the doorman. (He won’t miss Sheila) And it also looks as if Fudge will no longer be the baby of the family. How will Peter ever survive if his new sibling is a carbon copy of Fudge?
Mine: This is much better as an audio book (actually read by the author). I had tried reading this when I was younger, but never read the first book, so the story was hard to follow. How Fudge can bring on such troubles is humorous.
Moving from New York City to a small town where he must meet new friends and start at a new school along with this brother Fudge. He does such innocent things, but they turn in to unmanageable problems for Peter his favorite brother.
