Publisher's Summary

Blubber is a good name for her, the note from Wendy says about Linda. Jill crumples it up and leaves it on the corner of her desk. She doesn't want to think about Linda or her dumb report on the whale just now. Jill wants to think about Halloween.

But Robby grabs the note, and before Linda stops talking it has gone halfway around the room.

That's where it all starts. There's something about Linda that makes a lot of kids in her fifth-grade class want to see how far they can go, but nobody, least of all Jill, expects the fun to end where it does.

Narration is awful

I loved Judy Blume books as a child and am glad they are available on Audible. Unfortunately, the narrator for this book is one of the worst I've heard. I recommend buying the book and skipping the audio version of Blubber.

Refreshing and Helpful

This book opened the door for the Bullying talk with my granddaughter.
I wanted to know if she has experienced anything like this; not only in respect to being on the receiving end but also as the Bully.
I remember how quickly a joke or prank can be turned into something hurtful and demeaning and with a little bit of encouragement from your peers can be the deciding factor as to whether or not the senior stops.
Great Book!

Tells About Kids And There Action's

I loved this book because it taught me that some kids act this way and don't realize that it hurts others like when my child was bullied for 3 to 4 years she didn't want to go to school or do anything so we moved and went farther away from that school so thank you for writing this book it showed me what to say and what to do thank you!
