Blume's reading of this sequel to Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing shows the humorous side of sibling rivalry. In Peter Hatcher's tone of disbelief at the news of his mother's pregnancy, Blume accurately re-creates the melodramatic tone of a fifth-grade boy. In juxtaposition to Peter is Fudge, his four-year-old brother. Blume's carefree prattle is right on target for him. Peter's account of Fudge's antics, a constant embarrassment to his family, will keep the listener amused. Elementary school fans will enjoy Blume's comic performance of typical family situations.
