Book Description

4 Nov 2011
Sally J. Freedman loves making up stories – stories in which she is always the star of her own lavish film spectaculars. But when her close-knit family is separated because of her brother's illness, even Sally's daydreams are not enough to comfort her. With her beloved father left behind in New Jersey, a winter in the Florida sunshine seems gloomy, and the cramped and dingy flat can't compare with her comfortable home, or her new classmates with her old friends. Worst of all it is 1947 and Sally is convinced that Adolf Hitler is alive and living in Miami Beach . . .

More About the Author

Judy Blume spent her childhood in Elizabeth, NJ, making up stories inside her head. She has spent her adult years in many places, doing the same thing, only now she writes her stories down on paper. Adults as well as children will recognize such Blume titles as: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret; Superfudge; Blubber; Just As Long As We're Together; and Forever. She has also written the best-selling novels Wifey; Smart Women; and, Summer Sisters. More than 75 million copies of her books have been sold, and her work has been translated into twenty-six languages.

She receives thousands of letters each month from readers of all ages who share their feelings and

concerns with her.

Judy received a B.S. in education from New York University in 1961, which named her a Distinguished Alumna in 1996, the same year that American Library Association honored her with the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Achievement. She has won more than ninety awards, none more important than those coming directly from her youngest readers.

She serves on the boards of the Author's Guild, currently as Vice President; the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, where she sponsors an award for contemporary fiction; and the National Coalition Against Censorship, working to protect intellectual freedom. In Spring 2002, Judy was a spokesperson for the Cheerios "A Book for Every Child" literacy campaign which benefited Reading is Fundamental, America's largest literacy organization. She is also the founder and trustee of The Kids Fund, a charitable and educational foundation.

Judy's first book in the Fudge series, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, was published in 1972. She is thrilled to be celebrating its 30th Anniversary with the publication of Double Fudge. Just as generations of fans have loved the Fudge books, generations of Judy's family have inspired them. Thirty years ago, Fudge was inspired by her son, Larry, and now Double Fudge was written at the request of her grandson, Elliot.

Judy lives on islands up and down the East Coast with her husband George Cooper. They have three grown children and one grandchild.

Format:Paperback
Judy Blume wrote this book whilst drawing on her own childhood experiences, and the result is a very touching and funny read. I was ten when I first read it and I love the character of Sally and the adventures she has when her family re-locates to Florida. It was my 'joint-favourite' Judy Blume book alongside 'Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret?' (although for entirely different reasons- Sally amused me, whilst Margaret was extremely educational when it came to periods and bras).
After re-reading 'Sally J' recently, I was finally able to enjoy the more adult humour of the book, specifically of Sally's misunderstandings of adult situations. As a ten year old, I was just as baffled as Sally.
This is precisely why Blume's books will go down in history as great children's fiction. She knows how kids think, and she doesn't patronize or belittle them.
I love this book- I love Sally's wild imagination as she panics that Hitler may be masquerading as an elderly Jewish man in her building, I love her confusion at the phrase 'Love, and other indoor sports' when snooping at her babysitter's letters, but most of all I love Judy Blume's unfailing knack of understanding. She just, you know, gets it.
