Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Judy Blume outdoes herself with Double Fudge. Aptly named, this book is easily twice as funny as the previous book, Fudge-a-Mania, with the introduction of the entertaining "Howies." Parents and kids will laugh at the way this book pokes fun at nouvel parenting ideas (no candy, no TV, no sleepovers), and kids will feel Peter's pain when his cousins embarrass him at school as well as at home. As always, Blume also manages to sneak in a few lessons along the way: Fudge may have a lot of fun thinking about money, but his real little heart shows when Uncle Feather is hurt. Both Peter and Fudge are believable, lovable characters, and this volume of the Fudge chronicles takes the humor to a new level.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
