I love this book it’s great but I’d really like to see how Mouse would’ve reacted to Fudge “getting married” but this book is in general gold

Amazing book

I like how there’s always a problem in these books.one reason I don’t like is that fudge calls Peter Pete instead of peta.

Laugh out loud with my kids

I so enjoyed reading Judy Blume growing up in the 70-80"s, so I chose the Fudge series to listen to with my 8 year old daughter and 5 year old son on a 14 hour road trip. We loved this story the best in the series. Blume so expertly enters the psyche of kids. She deeply understands a child's quirky, sometimes morbid sense of humor and she is just so perfectly honest about what it feels like to be 5 or 8 or 10, that we couldn't help but laugh out loud at many points in this book- ALL 3 of us. Blume narrating the series is the icing on the proverbial cake. Truly fantastic! (Even if you have never been to Maine, this vacation-debacle story is relatable to any grown up or kid.)

First Judy Blume book I read.

Not a bad book at all. A lot of funny moments, and slice of life as well. Shame she's only written a few of them.
Normally, an author narrating his or her own book isn't well recieved, but, Judy does it quite well, the right voices, inflection and so on.
