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!

“It’s a pleasure to watch a talented author like Judy Blume consistently create books that reflect a remarkable ability for combining humor with perceptive insight into a child’s world.” (Publishers Weekly)

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!!

Busting the belief in Santa

Why in the world does Judy have to blow the Santa Claus belief???? I had no idea and my 5, 7 and 9 year olds still believe. I was so disappointed that they learned the truth in a children’s audio book and not on my timing. So disappointed.

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.

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.
