Publisher's Summary

He knows a lot of big words, but he doesn't know where babies come from. He's never heard of a stork, but he plans to be a bird when he grows up. He's Superfudge, otherwise known as Farley Drexel Hatcher. And, according to his older brother, Peter, the biggest pain invented. Among other things.

As fans of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing already know, nothing is simple for Peter Hatcher. He is far from overjoyed at the turn the family fortunes are taking. It looks as if Peter will be spending the sixth grade far from Central Park, Sheila Tubman, Jimmy Fargo and Henry the doorman. (He won't miss Sheila.) And it also looks as is Fudge will no longer be the baby of the family. How will Peter ever survive if his new sibling is a carbon copy of Fudge?

But as Fudge fans know, bad news for Peter generally means good news for Judy Blume's readers, in the form of a very funny story.

They won't be disappointed!

    "Careful!"

    This was a great audio book, but I caution parents of young children. There are discussions about Santa that had me scrambling to turn the volume. However, my 6 year old and my 3 year old keep asking to listen to Fudge again.

    "A great story"

    This has a hero for everyone -- mine's the ever challenged mom, my daughter loves the annoyed but earnest big brother, and of course our 4 year old loves the mischevious fudgie. After listening to this we had to read all four books in the series. Thank you Judy Blume!!

    "A very entertaining listen"

    When it comes to audio books, I tend to focus on the quality of the recording and performance, rather than on the book itself, which can simply be read. I generally dislike it when authors read their own works, as they usually don't give the same performance that actors do. When I heard a clip of Superfudge, I didn't much care for Blume's voice and narration, but I downloaded it anyway. Getting used to her as the narrator didn't take very long, and I found that she really made her book come alive in a way that only she, as the author, could have. She's a capable narrator and makes her books very enjoyable to listen to. The recording is loud and clear. I plan to download the rest of the Fudge series.

    "Plan on trying to get my money back from Audible"
    What would have made Superfudge better?

    A different narrator. Aaarrghh! I bought this quickly with a bunch of others and neglected to test the voice. It's Judly Blume and while I love her writing, I dislike her voice a lot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Judy Blume again?

    Would certainly try not to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I just found her voice very grating. Hard to describe.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Superfudge?

    I had to stop listening because my 6 year old and 3 year old do not know facts regarding how pregnancy occurs. I'm waiting for them to ask, but not bringing it up yet. Well, if you have this on for your kids, the discussion will start for you! Ugh. Had to turn it off asap.

    The problem with audiobooks is that they make stories normally read by older children accessible to younger children, and I had forgotten the parents in the story have a third child and there would be this type of discussion in the book. Just assumed it would be okay for a 6 year old.

    "Amazing!"

    This is a really great book. Judy Blume really reads it with imagination. One thing that would be funny is when Peter and Alex and fudge are joking around about worms, peter would say really getting worm-ed up instead of warmed up. Haha

    "A teardrop from my past."

    This was my favorite book when I was a child. My father would read it to me because I have trouble reading. I would make him read it over and over again. I still have the book and the binding is worn. As soon as I saw that it was available on Audible, I bought it. I started listening to Judy narrate and it was as if my father who passed away was reading it to me for the 35th time. I shed a tear of joy and the reflection of my father and how happy he would be to know that someone special is able to continue reading to his son "Superfudge". Thank you Judy Blume
