Amazon Review

Double Fudge continues the embarrassing adventures of Peter Hatcher's little brother Fudge. Now aged five and back in New York he is causing 12-year-old Peter as much pain and nuisance as in the previous stories, begun with Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Narrated sensitively by Peter, this instalment covers Fudge's obsession with money (and thus, with his new rich friend Richie Potter), his horror at finding there's another Farley Drexel in the world, getting Uncle Feather to talk and the realisation by Peter that Fudge is growing up.

The presence of Harry Potter, the internet and mobile phones will appear as anachronisms to Judy Blume's first generation of fans who met the Hatchers in the 1970s and 1980s, but will obviously not be blinked at by the intended audience of today's children. Though the world in which Blume is writing may have aged since she first endeared herself to young readers, her characters and their problems remain universally appealing. Two Hatcher families, two Farley Drexels and two girl cousins mean double trouble for adolescent Peter, double sympathy from pre-teen readers and most likely double fun for younger readers. As for Fudge, he's a little confused at first if it means fun or trouble for him, but he (and we) soon find out.

Double Fudge offers one alternative look at American values--Peter's cousins don't eat candy or watch TV--but by the end reassures us that the American childhood we know from books and films is still munching its popcorn, going to grade school and being smart with its parents. Long live super double Fudge! (Ages 7-12) --Olivia Dickinson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This book was written in a way that makes it not as good as the original books. Judy Bloom has changed the way she has written in this book. It is not as funny which has disappointed me a little. On the bright side of things, it did fascinate me to find out about the new characters that the author has put in.

I'm 15 Years Old, yet I must have read this book 6, 7, maybe 8 times. It is simply hilarious:

"Fudge is back! And he's driving his big brother Peter completely mad.

Some things never change. Like Fudge - also known as Farley Drexel Hatcher. He may be nearly six, but he is still one BIG heap of trouble. Fudge has discovered that mney makes the world go round - and he wants lots of it! Whether he's printing his own Fudge bucks, playing Monopoly with a credit card or extorting enough from the tooth fairy to buy a city (which he'd call Fudgington), Fudge is determined to get more than his fair share of the green stuff.

But worse is to come. For Fudge's new obsession takes the whole family to Washington where they bump into long-lost Cousin Howie and his two dreadful daughters, the Natural Beauties. They're the most awful relatives ever. And they're coming to stay...

A delicious treat for Judy Blume fans - DOUBLE FUDGE means double the fun!"

I think the blurb hits the nail on the head. Fudge's antics are simply hilarious, and I couldn't help but laugh out loud throughout, gaining me some funny looks on the airplane or the school bus I can tell you! Now that I've gone back and read it again, I will definately be buying the rest, going back to the beginning with "Fourth Grade Nothing" and continuing on, as I just couldn't put this book down. For any child, male or female, I think they would LOVE it - an adult with a good sense of humour? Why not! I would recommend though that adult readers go into this book with an open-minded approach. It is aimed at children, so don't be expecting complex sentence structures and intertwining sub-plots. As long as you're okay with rolling from one hysterical moment to the next, BUY IT NOW!

I read Judy Blume when I was 12 and I'm delighted to say my 11 year old is now enjoying also. She loves the characters. Try the series, it will not disappoint.
