There are times when life with his brother Farley Drexel 'Fudge' Hatcher makes 12-year-old Peter Hatcher feel like running away. If you ask Peter, 4-year-old Fudge is just a bigger pain in the neck than he ever has been before. Peter and Fudge are told by their parents Anne and Warren that Anne is pregnant. Peter reacts with anger, because he's afraid that the new baby will turn out to be another Fudge. Whoa! If it turns out that way, How's Peter gonna survive? As if that thought is not enough, after baby Tamara Roxanne 'Tootsie' Hatcher is born, Anne and Warren announce that the Hatchers will sublet their apartment and move to Princeton, New Jersey for a year to see what it¿s like to live away from New York City, and Warren will be taking a one year leave of absence from the advertising agency to write a book while the Hatchers are in Princeton. It's bad enough that Peter will be starting sixth grade in an unfamiliar place, but then Anne infuriates Peter by telling Peter that Fudge will be starting Kindergarten in the same school that Peter will be going to, and Peter adamantly refuses to go to the same school as Fudge, but Peter is not given a choice in the matter. Under these circumstances, Peter thinks he'll absolutely hate spending a year in Princeton. Almost two weeks after the move to Princeton, Peter befriends Alex Santo, who lives across the street and is in Peter's sixth grade class. For Peter, that takes away some of the pain of the situation. Peter's best friend Jimmy Fargo, whose parents Anita and Frank are now divorced, also regularly visits Peter in Princeton, and at school, Fudge can't get along with his snobby teacher, Mrs. Hildebrandt, so Fudge is transferred to kindly Ms. Ziff's kindergarten classroom, where Fudge befriends a Jewish boy named Daniel Manheim. Princeton is also the setting for many of Tootsie's firsts. When it comes time to decide whether to go back to their apartment in New York or stay in Princeton, what will the Hatchers decide? The answer to that question is in this book, and I won't spoil it for you. Unlike Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Superfudge has a story line that takes up all 12 chapters, and it's a longer book than Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was. Superfudge is still a pretty funny book, and it's a good book for all ages. The Fudge series is known for showing the funny side of sibling rivalry.

Fun story but not for younger readers...makes many references to how babies are made and spells out the truth about Santa Claus for those not in the know. Surprising because this didn't happen in Fudge-o-mania....little kids could be upset.

This book is perfect for 9 year olds. All 9 year olds must read this book. Humorous yet serious. The characters are lovable. But this book is not perfect for all. I suggest that only younger-ish kids should read this book. dCoonster Signing Off

Fudge is the little brother we all wish we had just so he could drive us insane. Judy Blume has done it again with her precisely realistic tribute to children all over. Remember when you were a kid and how little things seemed soo dramatic and you thought life as you know it was over? This book covers everyday life as seen from a third grader and how he dealt with his unusual little brother. Juicy-O anyone?

I read these books when I was a young girl, so I was thrilled to share them with my daughters. Towards the end of the book I was disappointed to find out that Judy Blume does not believe in Santa. Just last week I had to explain the birds and the bees, that was enough for me in one week. Believing in santa is magical, a feeling I will always know. If anyone out there is reading this review and wondering "Is santa really real"? My answer to you is "yes". Some people have lost that magic, don't let them steal it from you. Judy Blume is a wonderful author, I hope she finds a way to believe again.

This story was about Peter's brother Fudge and the new baby in the family, Super Fudge. This family was kind of weird, but very funny! Super Fudge is a great book and it will keep you reading all day or night.

I really enjoyed reading this book agian. I am now 24 years old and had to choose a book for My Childrens Lit class and I remeber that this book was one of my favorite books back in elementary school. To reread the book was enjoyable because I was still able to rember parts of the book, it brought back lots mof memories. I am glad to read what other people have to say about this book is exciting because I agree with the majority of the people

This book took place mostly in Princeton. The characters are Peter,Fugde, Peter's friend and his mom and dad. I think this book was exciting because lots of fun things happen like when Peter's mom has a baby. The problem in this book is that Peter hates Fudge which is his little brother. Peter's mom has a baby who's name is Tootsie. Peter gets mad and thinks that the baby is going turn out like Fudge so he says he's going to run away. I would reccomend this book to anyone who likes exciting stories!

I think this book was exciting because it's funny and has great characters. I recommend this book to anyone who is in to funny books. A couple things I learned about the characters in this book is that Peter hates his little brother Fudge. This book mostly takes place in Priceton. The problem is that their mom has a baby, and Peter doesn't want her too. He meets new friends there. This book would be very exciting for anyone.

Superfudge is one of the best books I have read. It is just as good as Tales of the Fourth grade nothing.

This book would make a great gift for an older child. 'Superfudge' is the sequel to 'Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing,' another classic children's story. Twelve-year-old Peter Hatcher and his family are moving to Princeton for a year. Peter and his brother Fudge don't always get along. Their mother is going to have a baby soon, adding more uncertainty to their lives. Will the baby be like Fudge? What could be worse for Peter?

Kids, especially with younger brothers and sisters will relate to the problems Peter faces. The story moves quickly, keeping the reader's attention, and is filled with humor. The reader will definitely appreciate Blume's talent for writing a good tale.

As a children's book author, I highly recommend 'Superfudge.'
