My nine year old daughter, Imagineer, has read SuperFudge, by Judy Blume, at least three times in the past six months. We’re at the point now where she is always reading a new book while at the same time, we still see the bookmark moving in her SuperFudge book on the side table near her bed.
I’ll find her at the kitchen table eating breakfast while reading SuperFudge. She will also walk around the house carrying and reading her book. When we get in the car, she will bring her book to read as we’re driving. She loves how funny the interactions between Peter and Fudge are, and I think she can relate, since she has a high energy little brother as well. 🙂
Needless to say, this has to be one of her favorites, due to the repeat reads. Its actually my hardbound copy from when I was in elementary school. My third grade handwriting is on the front where I wrote my name. 🙂
I sat down with Imagineer to hear her thoughts about this very special book today.
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A. This book is about a boy named Peter and his little brother, Fudge, or Farley Drexel Hatcher. And they move to Princeton for a year and his sister Tootsie is born and a lot of things change. Like Peter goes to a new school and Fudge goes to Kindergarten.
Q. Describe the main character
A. The main character is Peter Hatcher. He is a I think a 10-11 year old who is in sixth grade and has a little brother, Fudge. Peter has a pet dog named Turtle. Peter is nice and he has friends named Jimmy Fargo and Alex Santo.
Q. What is your most favorite scene in the book?
A. My favorite scene in the book is when Fudge, Peter, and Alex eat worm cookies. They are chocolate chip cookies that instead of flour, they have worms in them. Fudge is about to eat it, then decides he does not want to eat a worm cookie, but then he does. The cookies are made by Ms. Muldour.
Q. Would you recommend this book to your friends?
A. YES!! Because it is funny and its funny and its funny.
Imagineer LOVES this book, and this just warms my heart, since I used to LOVE this book as well. She told me after the interview that I can interview her again soon after she reads it again.
