"Superfudge" appeals to young readers because it deals with genuine family situations. Eleven-year-old Peter and his younger brother Fudge find out a new baby is on the way. After the baby arrives, Fudge plays tricks on her, such as covering her with postage stamps and hiding her. The family temporarily relocates from New York to Princeton, N.J., and the boys are forced to make new friends and attend a new school. Fudge copes by displaying uncontrollable behavior, adopting a myna bird and running away from home. It's a funny fast-paced adventure full of lessons on family life, sibling rivalry, coping with new situations and the consequences of poor decisions.
