Superfudge | [Judy Blume]

Superfudge

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.

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.

    "LOL for my 2nd grader and I"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Superfudge to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but had we done so first, I'm sure it would have been great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I personally find Peter to be thoughtful, funny and wonderfully honest. I wonder often if I was as thoughtful when I was his age.


    Which character – as performed by Judy Blume – was your favorite?

    Fudge is truly one of the funniest characters in audiobook history, and Judy Blume captures his comedic side perfectly. He's funny, even when he's not trying to be.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We listen in the car, on the way to and from school. It's fun to laugh with my 2nd grader, when stuck in traffic!


    Any additional comments?

    We also listened to "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" by Blume, and have loved them both. My son gets upset, when we have to get out of the car, and that's usually after a 45 minute ride. If that's not a good sign, not sure what is.

    "Not just Fudge"

    I remember reading these as a child so now that my son is of age to read them too I could not wait to share. I was this series by downloading the able to get him interested in the series by downloading these books if I would have relied on him just reading them he never would have got past the cover.

    "The adventures continue."

    After having Fourth Grade Nothing read to me and my class in, fittingly enough, the fourth grade, I wanted more. I was delighted to discover that there was a sequel. Superfudge lives up to what I'd come to expect from its prequel, and Ms. Blume once again does a fine job bringing this tale to life.
    The sixth grade year is not a good year for Peter Hatcher. First there was the bombshell of the impending birth of his newest sibling, Tamara AKA Tootsie Hatcher. As if that wasn't bad enough, Peter discovers soon afterward that he's going to be spending his sixth grade year far from Central Park, Jimmy Fargo, Sheila Tubman (although this last is no bad thing), and everything he's used to as the family makes a year-long move from New York to Princeton. In the course of that year he becomes involved in many adventures, from digging worms with a new friend which they sell to an old lady, to Fudge getting a Myna bird, to a brief romance? with a girl at his new school. And of course Fudge has his own adventures and misadventures, from sibling rivalry with Tootsie to a new friend who claims to be a bird expert, to getting used to a new school. All in all it's an excellent read even for me at thirty-one. Reminds me of when times were simpler.

    "Superfudge v2.0, not the original edition!"

    I was very disappointed by this audiobook...

    Listen carefully to the end credits, and you'll hear what I remembered, that this book was originally published in **1980**. Ms. Blume, unfortunately, took tremendous liberties in rewriting certain passages to update it for things that had become common place by 1992, such as compact discs (a format still in development when the book first came out) and laptop computers (a very expensive Christmas wish list item in 1992).

    Still, it is a very funny listen, and a good sequel to "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing".
