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.

Great for School Review

My son's 5th grade class read this in class. Using the audio helped boost his grades. He loved the listen and out performed others this way.
