Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
written by Judy Blume
reviewed by Chris the King (Grade: 4 Age: 9)
Do you have a weird brother? Peter does. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is about when Peter wins a turtle. Then Peter’s brother Fudge ate one of his mom’s flowers. Next, the Yarbys come and Peter’s dad gets fired from their company. Finally, Fudge eats Peter’s turtle Dribble. Find out what happens to Fudge after eating Dribble?
Most characters are not believable, but a few are. Peter is believable because he never did anything weird. Fudge is not realistic because no kid would swallow a flower. Their Dad is not that believable because no adult would pour cereal on top of their kid. Their mom is not believable because she doesn’t care about Peter and most mothers do care.
I would rate Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing a 10 out of 10 because every minute of it got better and better. I recommend this book to everybody who likes chapter books that are age 9-13. I also recommend this book to the kids who are the youngest in their family so they can live what Fudge lives. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is a book you will never forget.
