Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing
by Judy Blume
Reviewed by “Twisted King” (Grade 4)
Do you have a weird brother? Peter does. In Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing it all starts out when Peter wins a turtle. Then Mr. and Mrs. Juicy-O came to Peter’s house for one night. Peter’s little brother Farley Drexal Hatcher, otherwise known as Fudge, puts stamps on Mr. Juicy-O’s suitcase. Mr. Juicy-O is Peter’s dad’s boss. Unfortunately, Peter’s dad lost his account. But when Fudge ate Dribble, Peter’s turtle, things get worse. You are going to have to find out!
In the book some characters are believable, some are not. Fudge is not a believable character because he ate flowers and cut his own hair with scissors. Kids his age don’t do that. Peter’s mom is one of the believable characters because she worries about her babies just like real mothers do. But unfortunately Peter’s mom does NOT care about Peter.
I would recommend this book because it is funny and entertaining too. I think kids who are Judy Blume fans would like the book. I would rate Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing 10 stars out of 10 because it reminds me of my little sister doing stuff wrong, like messing around in the house. Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing is a book you wouldn’t want to put down!
