Author(s): Judy Blume
Sometimes life in the Hatcher household is enough to make twelve-year-old Peter think about running away. His worst problem is still his younger brother, Fudge, who hasn't changed a bit since his crazy capers in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. If you ask Peter, Fudge is just an older -- and bigger -- pain.
Then Peter learns that his mom is going to have a baby and the whole family is moving to Princeton for a year. It will be bad enough starting sixth grade in a strange place and going to the same school as Fudge. But Peter can imagine something even worse. How will he ever survive if the new baby is a carbon copy of Fudge?
Another brilliant adventure for Fudge and his friends in the third book in Judy Blume's hugely successful and hilarious younger fiction series. With cover art from picture-book star Emily Gravett.
Warm and funny, the five novels about family and school life are brilliantly written and a must for young readers. Expect to hear laughter! Your Cotswold Family
