Publisher's Summary

"Money, money, money...I love money, money, money" is Fudge's new theme song. He's drawing dollar signs for breakfast, thumbing through catalogs at bedtime, and making enough "Fudge Bucks" so he can buy the whole world (or at least Toys "R" Us). Fudge's latest obsession is driving his brother, Peter, crazy!

But life really spins out of control when Peter and his family meet their long-lost relatives, the Howie Hatchers of Honolulu, Hawaii. Not only does Peter have to deal with the Natural Beauties, his annoying twin cousins who burst into song at the drop of a hat, but also their weird little brother. When Fudge discovers he's not the only Farley Drexel Hatcher in the world, look out!

Can Peter handle seventh grade plus a double dose of Fudge? Fasten your seat belt because, as millions of Jude Blume fans know, it's going to be a wild ride!

Good family entertainment

My seven year old has listened to this several times and continues to ask for it. It's a welcome change from the usual kid-approved radio shows.

Perfect for Elementary Kids

What made the experience of listening to Double Fudge the most enjoyable?

We all listened to this on a cross-country road trip. The kids were mesmerized and it was a trip down memory lane for the adults.

What about Judy Blume’s performance did you like?

Very dramatic.

Any additional comments?

Good choice!

A fun read.

I was a fan of the Fudge books when I was in grade school, but I never knew there was a fourth installment until recently. When I discovered Audible had it I decided to use one of my last set of credits to buy it.
Double Fodge opens with Farley Drexel Hatcher, better known as Fudge, asking how much it would cost to buy New York. This question is just the first sign of a major obsession with money and all things connected to it. As time goes by the rest of the family begins to grow concerned about Fudge's unhealthy obsession, but they're at a loss for how to teach Fudge the truth about money. Finally Peter and Fudge's dad agrees to a suggestion from the boys' grandma to take Fudge to Washington D.C. to tour the Bureau of Engraving and Printing where money is printed. Far from curing Fudge's obsession this trip has just the opposite effect, ee causing him to go so far as to declare his intention to buy Washington, now renamed Fudgington. A sideeffect of the trip is the unexpected reunion with a family of long lost relatives, the Honolulu Hatchers. This family of five includes Warren Hatcher's cousin Howie, accompanied b his wife Udora, their twin daughters Flora and Fauna and their three-year-old son Farle Drexel also nicknamedFudge. This, of course, creates no small amount of friction between the two small boys.
Things only become more chaotic when the Honolulu Hatchers, who didn't exactly endear themselves to Peter and his family, suddenly invite themselves to stay in the family's small apartment. This of course leads to a whole series of mishaps as the two Farley Drexels try to coexist and Peter and his parents try to cope with the rather uptight nature of their newly-discovered relations. Will everyone survive the visit with their sanity intact? You'll have to listen on to find out.

My daughter and I love to listen to this every night before bed and we love all of the sudden urge series we need to still read tale of the Fourth Grade Nothing which is when fudge and Peter were introduced and I do believe that's probably the best one.

Most amazing book ever I can't even explain 😄

This book is very entertaining because when mini eats fudges tooth and then cousin Howie thinks mini is joking around but then he realizes that mini is not joking. And also the code name song is incredibly. Hysterically funny. You should definitely listen to this book. Another great part is when they go to see the green stuff. EzraH 7 Charlottesville Virginia
