Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was our most recent audiobook. I remembered reading it as a child -- appropriately when I was about in fourth grade -- and I remembered that I enjoyed it, but I had forgotten just how much I loved it.

Spyder is in the fourth grade. That, combined with my memories, made me pick it up on impulse last week. We had just finished The Castle Corona, so we were looking for a new book for the car anyway.

The book is read by the author, and she does an excellent job of giving life to the characters. While the book shows us Peter's point of view, I always think of Fudge, the younger brother, as the main character. My children were absolutely enthralled while listening to his antics.

So far we've listened to the book twice, and they are now (impatiently) awaiting Superfudge on audio.

Oh yes! I may have to go get it just to hear Judy Blume read it in her voice. Oh how I love Judy Blume!
