Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-6. When Judy Blume first started writing, she had a unique voice. Her voice hasn't changed, but there have been so many Blume imitators--good and bad--that it is a little difficult to hear her above the others. Fudge-a-Mania is a perfectly respectable first-person novel, featuring those popular brothers Peter and Fudge, with a guest appearance by Sheila Tubman, otherwise known as Sheila the Great. Here, Peter and Sheila are forced to spend the summer together when their families share a vacation house, and readers will laugh at all the problems that pop up with the two enemies in such close quarters. As always with Blume, the dialogue is bright and snappy, the plotting episodic. It's not Blume's fault that she sounds like everyone else now, but it would be nice if she'd speak up a little so we could all remember what made her special. ~--Ilene Cooper"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "There's no doubt about it--Fudge Hatcher is a sweet little guy, and fans of Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Superfudge will cheer his return. Here the five-year-old extrovert continues to annoy his older brother, narrator Peter, whose gruff demeanor hides a very big heart. Blume's latest fast-pitched, funny novel further develops the relationship between these two endearing brothers as the Hatchers and their New York City neighbors, the Tubmans, share a house in Maine for a three-week vacation. Sheila Tubman, Peter's nemesis in Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great , returns in fine form, appearing for breakfast each morning in her fuzzy pink robe and bunny slippers--just one of Sheila's many habits driving Peter crazy and inspiring numerous diverting scenes. In fact, the colorful antics of all members of the two families--as well as a handful of the locals they meet--make reading these pages a treat. Ages 8-12. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
