6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Katie’s entry. Thanks, Katie!
Double Fudge Judy Blume Dutton Children’s Books pg.213 Brothers Peter and Fudge went to Washington D.C. for spring break. As soon as they got there they went on a tour, mostly about money. Fudge wanted everything in the gift shop. Fudge loved money so much; he made his own money, Fudge Bucks’. The main character in Double Fudge is Peter. Peter’s friend, Jimmy Fargo, moved to SoHo because his father was an artist. Jimmy takes they subway to school every day. About every week Jimmy goes to Peters or Peter goes to Jimmy’s. Peter lives in an apartment, and Jimmy lives in a condo. They have been best friends for a long time. They also have another friend that lives in the apartments, Sheila. Jimmy used to live in the apartments but he doesn’t any more. While they were in Washington, there grandma, there little sister Tootsie, Fudge’s bird, and Peter’s dog were at home. In the gift shop Fudge saw a man staring at their dad. Fudge pointed him out for his dad. Then he walked over and said, “Tubby, is that you?” From saying that he knew it was his long last cousin, cousin Howie. Cousin Howie and their dad had a talk went some places and just hung out. He had two daughters Peters age, Flora and Fauna; he also had a son a little younger then Fudge, Farley. They deiced that they would come down to New York were Peter’s family lived. When they got back, a few days later they went to Jimmy’s dads art show. When they got back Howie and his family were outside waiting for them to get back. They stayed at Peter’s family’s apartment for a couple weeks. Then they got to stay at their neighbor’s apartment till December, while they were out of town. WILL THEY STAY IN NEW YORK WITH THEIR COUSINS OR NOT? I would recommend this book for sixth graders because there are a few things the younger grades won’t understand, and it would be too easy for higher grades.
