Description-

  • Fudge is back and he's discovered money in a big way. He's making his own "Fudge Bucks," dressing as a miser for Halloween and thumbing through catalogs before bed, choosing birthday and Christmas presents years in advance - much to the embarrassment of his family, especially older brother Peter, who's just starting 7th grade. But things begin to change when the Hatchers discover their long-lost relatives, The Howie Hatchers of Honolulu, Hawaii - not exactly your everyday family. With new cousins, Flora and Fauna, and 4 year old Farley Drexel - yes, that's right, another Farley Drexel! - the stage is set for a wild and wacky beginning to a new school year.

Excerpts-

  • From the cover Chapter 1

    The Miser

    When my brother Fudge was five, he discovered money in a big way. "Hey, Pete," he said one night as
    I was getting out of the shower. "How much would
    it cost to buy New York?"

    "The city or the state?" I asked, as if it were a serious question.

    "Which is bigger?"

    "The state, but all the good stuff is in the city." People who don't live in the city might disagree, but I'm a city kind of guy.

    "We live in the city, right?" Fudge said. He was sitting on the open toilet seat in his pajamas.

    "You're not doing anything, are you?" I asked as I toweled myself dry.

    "What do you mean, Pete?"

    "I mean you're sitting on the toilet, and you haven't pulled down your pj's."

    He swung his feet and started laughing. "Don't worry, Pete. Only Tootsie still poops in her pants." Tootsie is our little sister. She'll be two in February.

    Fudge watched as I combed my wet hair. "Are you going someplace?" he asked.

    "Yeah, to bed." I got into clean boxers and pulled a T-shirt over my head.

    "Then how come you're getting dressed?"

    "I'm not getting dressed. Starting tonight, this is what I wear instead of pajamas. And how come you're still up?"

    "I can't go to sleep until you tell me, Pete."

    "Tell you what?"

    "How much it would cost to buy New York City."

    "Well, the Dutch paid about twenty-four dollars for it back in the sixteen hundreds."

    "Twenty-four dollars?" His eyes opened wide. "That's all?"

    "Yeah, it was a real bargain. But don't get your hopes up. That's not what it would cost today, even if it were for sale, which it's not."

    "How do you know, Pete?"

    "Believe me, I know!"

    "But how?"

    "Listen, Fudge . . . by the time you're twelve there's a lot of stuff you know, and you don't even know how you know it."

    He repeated my line. "There's a lot of stuff you know and you don't even know how you know it!" Then he laughed like crazy. "That's a tongue twister, Pete."

    "No, that's just the truth, Fudge."

    The next day he was at it again. In the elevator he asked Sheila Tubman, "How much money do you have, Sheila?"

    "That's not a polite question, Fudgie," she told him. "Nice people don't talk about their money, especially in these times." Sheila gave me a look like it was my fault my brother has no manners. I hope she's not in my class this year. I hope that every year, and every year she's there, like some kind of itch you can't get rid of, no matter how hard you scratch.

    "I'm nice," Fudge said, "and I like to talk about money. You want to know how much I have?"

    "No," Sheila told him. "It's nobody's business but yours."

    He told her anyway. I knew he would. "I have fourteen dollars and seventy-four cents. I mise my money every night before I go to sleep."

    "You mise your money?" Sheila asked. Then she shook her head at me like it's my fault he thinks mise is a word.

    Henry, who runs the elevator in our building, laughed. "Nothing like having a miser in the family."

    "You don't have to be a miser, Fudge," Sheila said. "If you like counting money so much, you can work
    at a bank when you grow up."

    "Yeah," Fudge said. "I can work at a bank and mise my money all day long."

    Sheila sighed. "He doesn't get it," she said to me.

    "He's only Þve," I reminded her.

    "Almost six," he reminded me. Then he tugged Sheila's arm. "Hey, Sheila . . . you know how much the Dude paid for New York City?"

    "The Dude?" Sheila asked. "Is this some kind of joke?"

    "Not the Dude," I told Fudge. "The Dutch."

    "His name was Peter Minuit,"...

About the Author-

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine The pleasure is doubled in Judy Blume's DOUBLE FUDGE. Not only do the escapades of Farley Hatcher, the incorrigible youngster of several previous Blume novels, continue, but the author herself is the narrator. The Hatcher parents, seventh-grader Peter, young Tootsie, Uncle Feather, Turtle, Grandma, and friend Jimmy continue to have their outlook on the world challenged by Fudge, who is now a kindergartener. Fudge's current obsession is money: Where does it come from, how do you get it, and what can it buy? A trip to the mint in Washington, D.C., ever after known as Fudgington, provides the family with the discovery of the long lost Honolulu Hatchers, doubling their numbers. Who better to bring voice to her own characters than the author herself? Judy Blume knows this family intimately and adds meaning, nuance, and humor to each scene with every elongated syllable, inflected word, and pregnant pause. Her delight in this family is evident and infectious. Laugh aloud as this thoroughly modern family mirrors one's own. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine

    Fudge, arguably the most irrepressible little brother on Earth, is back, and is causing all sorts of comic trouble in this adaptation of Blume's latest book about the Hatcher family. When Fudge develops an obsession with money, his parents plan a family trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. While in Washington, D.C., the Hatchers run into some long-lost cousins, the Howie Hatchers of Honolulu. The Howie Hatchers invite themselves to New York City for a get-reacquainted visit with their relatives, and the wackiness for which Blume's tales are known ensues. All the while, Blume accurately captures seventh-grader Peter Hatcher's exasperation and embarrassment over his family with both humor and good-heartedness. Though she occasionally sounds too babyish in her portrayal of Fudge, Blume generally breezes through the Hatchers' antics with unflagging energy and a knowing sense of fun. The author has included a brief introduction describing her inspiration for the story. Simultaneous release with the Dutton hardcover.
    Ages 6-up.
