Superfudge
by: Judy Blume

design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Main Characters
The main characters of Superfudge are Peter Hatcher and his obnoxious brother Farley Drexel otherwise known as Fudge.
Theme/Lesson Learned
The theme of Superfudge is a quote from Peter's Dad. He stated, "Changes take some time getting used to, but in the long run they're healthy."
By: Emma Bell
Ten year old Peter is a kind and funny person who is exasperated with his little brother Fudge. Peter is annoyed by Fudge and he often wants to pull his hair out. But, most of the time he stays calm and keeps his cool. For example, one time Fudge put collector's stamps all over Tootsie (his baby sister) and hid her. Peter didn't yell at Fudge, he just told him not to do it again. Peter is also an obedient and high-spirited person. He is an obedient person because he has to pick up his dog Turtle's scat off the sidewalk when he walks him, and he never forgets. Peter is very responsible too! He baby-sits Fudge all the time! Peter is a good friend when he learns he is moving to New Jersey and tells Jimmy Fargo, his best friend, that he can use his favorite rock.
Peter
Fudge
Four year old Fudge is a silly and kind little boy who aggravates his big brother Peter. Fudge shows he is silly when he dances barefoot with his Grandma in Tootsie's bedroom! Even though Fudge is silly he is also caring. For example, he says quite frequently, "I love you mommy!" or "I love you Pee-tah!". Fudge is always very sorry when he does something to aggravate or hurt somebody. Fudge also does what he is told to do. One time his mom told him to go clean up his mess and he did it right away. Fudge is a kind, obedient, and frivolous little boy.

Peter thinks his sworn enemy for life, Shelia Tubman, is a big brat and sissy because she is afraid of Turtle and says he stinks, is gross, and is the worst dog ever. But, Peter has other things to deal with other than that pain Sheila. His brother Fudge is more than he can handle.
Fudge is Peter's worst nightmare. He bounces off the walls like a maniac and annoys Peter like I don't know what. And then it just gets worse. Peter learns that he is going to get a baby sister and he decides to run away. His Mom convinces him to stay and try out the baby. Tootsie, the baby, is born and Peter learns to handle another little pain in his life. One day Peter gets another surprise. His father is the president of an advertisement company, but he decides to take a break and start writing a book. But he doesn't want to write it in New York.
