Peter will be trapped with Fudge and Sheila for three whole weeks!
About the Author
JUDY BLUME spent her childhood in Elizabeth, New Jersey, making up stories inside her head. She spent her adult years doing the same thing in many places, only now she writes her stories down on paper. Her numerous books have won many awards, including the National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.
The character of Fudge first appeared in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Judy says: " Back then, Fudge was inspired by my son, Larry. This time around, my grandson was the inspiration. I promised him if I ever got another idea I'd write a Fudge book. I feel really lucky that just when I least expected it, an idea came to me. I was eating pancakes at that time and started making notes for the book an hour later. Hmmm.. maybe I should eat more pancakes!"
