Living with his little brother, Fudge, makes Peter Hatcher feel like a fourth grade nothing.
Whether Fudge is throwing a temper tantrum in a shoe store, smearing smashed potatoes on walls at Hamburger Heaven, or scribbling all over Peter's homework, he's never far from trouble. He's a two-year-old terror who gets away with everything and Peter's had enough.
When Fudge walks off with Dribble, Peter's pet turtle, it's the last straw. Peter has put up with Fudge too long. How can he get his parents to pay attention to him for a change?"

Review: Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (Fudge #1)

User Review  - Goodreads

McKay got into this one more than I thought he would. Fudge was his favorite character, and he thought the things he said and did were funny. By nature of being the oldest, I think he related on the level of having younger brothers, albeit not near as dastardly, that mess up his stuff. Read full review
