Author(s): Judy Blume
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.
"Fans of SUPERFUDGE and FUDGE-A-MANIA will welcome the return of seventh-grader Peter Hatcher and his five-year-old brother Fudge." (Publishers Weekly)
Another great adventure for Fudge and his friends in the final instalment of Judy Blume's hilarious younger fiction series. With cover art from picture-book star Emily Gravett.
