Teen review: Nostalgia read

The Fudge Series
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great,
Superfudge, Fudge-A-Mania, Double Fudge
by Judy Blume
Children’s fiction, appropriate for all ages

Reviewed by M.S. (grade 11)

Peter Hatcher has to deal with his annoying younger brother, “Fudge,” who somehow always finds ways to get into trouble, make a mess of things, and ruin
Peter’s life.

This series was the first full book series that I ever read, and it got me to enjoy books and reading. This series made me laugh and become excited to dive into the world that lived in the next book. When rereading the series, it makes me feel like a kid again, and that I’m once again going on some crazy adventures with the characters. I highly recommend these books to everyone and would rate the series a 5.

Editor's note: Doesn't everyone have "nostalgia" books that they return to, again and again? Mine are The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and the Anne of Green Gables series. Oh, and a weird run-away-and-join-the-circus book, called A Stranger at Wildings, by Madeleine Brent. What are the books that YOU are sentimental about revisiting? Feel free to post a comment listing them!
