About book: The book I am read is the 4th book of Farley Drexel Hatcher a.k.a Fudge: Double Fudge. In Chapter one, Fudge ask Peter a question about Money and he becomes obsessed with money. Then one day, Fudge asks Shelia Tubbman: Peter's sworn enemy, how much money she got. It wasn't a polite thing to say and Shelia looked at Peter to think it was his fault for telling Fudge about money. When Fudge let out a cheer of Money, Uncle Feathers: Fudge's bird, repeats what Fudge said. I'm on Chapter 2 and I'm still reading that Chapter. I wonder what will happen? During Chapter 2, Fudge, Peter's mom, Tootsie, and Peter went to buy shoes. Then, Fudge wanted to have his own bank. He named his bank: The Farley Drexel Hatcher Bank and I thougth it was creative and crazy. It was crazy because Naming a bank after yourself would be a used name for a person. I also heard in the book that Tootsie copied what Fudge said when not wanting to leave the shoe store. I thougth it was cute and adorable. I'm not quite done with chapter 2 yet. I had to read 5 pages of the book tonight. I will write another review next time. Hello, Double Fudge Readers, I am finished with chapter 2 in the book. In the end of this chapter, Peter heard that Jimmy Fargo: Peter's best friend, was moving to SoHo. Its because Jimmy's dad: Frank Fargo got a job at the Artist Loft. But, Jimmy will still see Peter in school sometimes. Peter also told Jimmy the time he moved to Princeton, New Jersey and moved back to New York. The Princeton part was from another book I read one: Super Fudge and thats where Tootsie: Peter and Fudge's little sister first appear. When Peter went back to his apartment for lunch, Fudge notice if peter felt like that a friend of his is moving. I'll let you know, Fudge was right all the time.In the end, Peter ran to his room when he was angry, Tootsie started bawling:crying and Fudge called out: " Thanks alot Pete, Everybody was happy ' til you came home." I had a friend named: William Braunlich and he moved to Conneticuit and we email each other and we can always visit each other. Well, thats it for today, See you next time for Chapter 3.

As part of UMHB's READ3307, I read "Double Fudge" by Judy Blume. This contemporary realistic fiction novel for grades 3-5 is actually the fifth in the Fudge series. It follows Peter Hatcher and his crazy family on their trip to Washington, D.C. where they meet their extended family. Peter's younger brother Farley Drexel ("Fudge") develops a borderline-obsessive interest in money in this story. This leads to a trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to learn about how money is made. Instead of Fudge losing his interest in money as his family hoped, his obsession grows even more. Soon, the family meets up with their distant cousins, the Howie Hatchers. This eclectic, slightly pretentious family irritates Peter to no end, from Howie the park ranger, to Eudora his pregnant wife, to their spoiled rotten twin girls. The worst part of this visit for Fudge, however, is the youngest in the Howie Hatchers: five-year-old Farley Drexel, who shares a name with Fudge. When the Howie Hatchers decide that they will be living with Peter's family for several weeks, chaos ensues. This book is in the contemporary realistic fiction genre because it is set in 2002, the year of publication of Double Fudge. It is set in Washington, D.C. as well as New York, where Peter and his family live. The theme of Double Fudge is family. You'll be in stitches reading Double Fudge! Its silly humor will keep you guessing and giggling. While the book is the fifth in the Fudge series, you don't have to read them in order to understand the story. Whether you're 8 or 68, you'll love this silly, heartfelt story about the importance of family... and maybe learn a thing or two about money!

Okay, after reading the Reader's Promise my son and I have been dedicating ourselves to reading for at least 15 minutes each night. It's been about 2 and a half months so far without a break. I typically read to him but we choose the books together although I limit the choices based on my trips to the used book/thrift stores. The first one down was Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library which both my 9 year old and I highly recommend (even though it echoes Willie Wonka in certain respects. Anyway my son had already read the first book in this series at school so the characters were recognizable. It was a pleasant read and as the reader it gave me plenty of performance room. I like the fact that most things in the book are not easily resolved and that for the most part the characters are treated with respect and that their idiosyncrasies are accepted rather than forced to change. My son giggled at numerous parts. So now we are starting Fudge-tastic and it is enjoyably more of the same.

The fourth book in the Fudge & Peter series, this one came out something like 7 years after Fudge-a-Mania. Now being an adult when it came out, I wasn't exactly following the childrens' books news any more, so I had no idea it had come out until years later. When I saw it in a bookstore, I bought it along with Fudge-a-Mania right away because of my cherished memories of the reading the first two books in the series many years before when I was in grade school.Reading it as an adult, I definitely had a different reaction. Not as into it. There were still some funny parts, but it wasn't the same. Obviously, because I'm not a kid any more, I'm no longer part of the target audience. I remembered the first 2 books being a lot better. Still good though, I'd still recommend it to anyone who's read the first 2.
Peter Hatcher's brother trouble Fudge, is now obsessed with money. When their family heads to Washington to teach Fudge about money, and where it comes from, they meet their dad's long lost cousins. When they invite themselves into to the Hatchers' apartment in New York, Peter's family has no choice but to host their cousins for their visit to New York for a night or two. But when one night turns to two, and two nights turn to a week, and a week turns into a month, Peter starts to wonder if they'll ever leave!I picked up this book because I was looking for something fun to read, and I remembered that this book was humorous. I finished this book because although this book wasn't as good as the other ones in the series, I still thought that the things that Fudge did were funny.I would recommend this book to Claudia. I think that she would appreciate the humor in this book, but she should probably start with the first one in the series (Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing).
