I just read Fudge-A-Mania, the third book (first is Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and then SuperFudge) about Peter Hatcher, his unique little brother Fudge, and the rest of his family (mom, dad, baby sister Tootsie, and Fudge’s crazy bird Uncle Feather). The Hatchers live in New York City, in the same building as Peter’s nemesis, Sheila Tubman (from Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great).
The Hatcher family decides to go on vacation for the summer and they rent out a huge house in Maine. The house is so big that they get some friends to rent it out with them…and it turns out that they are sharing the house with the Tubmans! Peter and Sheila are not too glad about that.
Things get even worse for Peter and Sheila when Peter’s grandmother meets Sheila’s grandfather. They fall in love and get married right there at the summer house. And now Peter and Sheila are sort of related, but they promise each other that they will still hate each other.
Some other fun things happen. Fudge meets a new friend, Peter meets one of his baseball heroes, and Tootsie gives Jimmy Fargo’s dad (who is an important and famous artist) some ideas for his new art.
I liked this book. Fudge is pretty funny, and the parts where Peter and Sheila argue were funny, too.
