Imagineer loves Judy Blume’s Fudge books.
So, its no surprise that Double Fudge ranks at the top of her favorite stories.
She has read this one a handful of times in the past few months. Its on her kindle and serves as her “go to” book, when she is in between books.
She thought it was silly that we had not posted a review yet on one of her favorite stories. And, I agreed, so we sat down today for a short interview.
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A. This book is about a boy named Fudge, and his older brother Peter. Fudge gets interested in money and money becomes his whole life. Fudge and Peter’s parents get worried and then his Grandma says that they should go to Washington D.C. and show Fudge where money comes from and Peter’s Dad agrees and says it might even help Fudge understand about money.
Q. Describe the main character
A. The main character is probably Peter who is in seventh grade and his brother, Fudge, who is in mixed group, which is an accelerated program, that let kids who have either done kindergarten or are smart enough for 1st grade, but not old enough.
Q. What is your most favorite scene in the book?
A. My favorite scene in the book would be when Peter’s friend’s Dad, Mr. Fargo, who is an artist, has an art show and puts Peter’s little sister, Tootsie, on his shoulders and says, “Here is the star of my show, the one, the only Tootsie Pie!” I like this scene because I like imagining Mr. Fargo with Tootsie on his shoulders and saying “the one, the only, Tootsie Pie.”
Q. Would you recommend this book to your friends?
A. Yes. I would recommend this book because it is funny and it is a book you can read over and over, again.
