Book review of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
In the beginning of Chapter 1 starts with Peter winning a turtle at Jimmie Farco’s birthday party. Peter names the turtle Dribble. He surprises his mom with the turtle. She does not like turtles because of their smell. Peter is nine and in fourth grade. He lives in New York City. We learn Peter has a problem with his younger brother Fudge.
In Chapter 2 Peter finds out that the president of the Juicy-O company are coming to New York. Peter’s dad invited them to stay in their apartment. Peter discovers that Fudge is going to have his sleep in his room. Peter’s mom is missing flowers they don’t know where the flowers are. They found out that Fudge ate the flowers. Peter also tastes a rose petal. He tried to chew it up but he could not, it tasted awful. He spit it out into the trash can. Mr and Mrs Yarby arrived and then fudge and Peter each get a present. Fudge ruins the dinner party by scaring mrs yarby twice. Mr and Mrs Yarby leave and Peters dad’s loses the Juicy-O account with Mr and Mrs Yarby.
Then in Chapter 3 Fudge stops eating. To make Fudge eat, Peter’s mom made Peter stand on his head so Fudge would laugh and his mom stuffed potato in his mouth. Then Peter says he won’t stand on his head anymore. Fudge acts like a dog and so his mom feeds him under the table. Fudge keeps refusing to eat, when he doesn’t eat his cereal his Dad says “eat it or wear it”. Peter’s dad takes Fudge to the washroom and dumps it on his head. After that Fudge started to eat, and his favourite expression was eat it or wear it.
And in Chapter 4 they go to the park and find Sheila on their favorite rock. Sheila is left watching1 Fudge while Peter’s mom goes home. Fudge pretends he is a bird and jumps off the jungle gym and then he gets hurt. Peter’s mom blames Peter and gets mad at him. Then Peter goes to his room mad and plays with his turtle. In the morning Peter’s mom apologizes.
I would give it 5 stars because it is crazy. Funny and weird things happen all the time. It sounds a bit like my life story with my sister. Maybe she is not as bad as Fudge.
I would recommend because it is a good book for people that like funny stories.
◊Fudge-a crazy annoying brother
◊Peter-a smart 9 year old kid
◊peters mom-a person that is always
◊sheila-a dumb ape-like kid
my opinion of the story is that it is a good story because it has a lot of funny and weird things happening on every page.
I think this is book is best suited for 7-11 year olds because the story links to those age groups.
I think that Fudge will dump Peter food on Peter’s head.
