Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing by: Judy Blume - Realistic Fiction Primary
This is a hilarious book about the Hatcher family. Peter, who is a fourth grader, is aggravated with his little brother Farley, a.k.a. Fudge. In this novel, Fudge eats Peter's pet turtle and gets cornflakes dumped on his head! Fudge's "games" require his parents' attention so much that sometimes Peter does not feel like they care about him. Will Peter find a way to prove he is important and a member of the family? Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing is a funny and realistic book that most kids can relate to. I really enjoyed this book because I can remember my older cousins always playing pranks on me; I look back at those memories now and can laugh.
