R.E.A.D. for Nēnē

Double Fudge
by Judy Blume

Jacket notes: Fudge is obsessed with money. He's going to be a miser for Halloween and has made plans to buy the entire world (or at least Toys"R"Us). But life really gets crazy when Fudge and his older brother Peter run into their long-lost relatives, the Howie Hatchers. Not they have to deal with annoying twin cousins and a weird younger cousin, coincidentally named Farley Drexel Hatcher -- just like Fudge! Their names aren't the only similiarity, and before long, mini-Fudge is causing just as much trouble as Fudge always has!

Book cover for DoubleFudge

" When my brother Fudge was five, he discovered money in a big way. 'Hey, Pete,' he said one night as I was getting out of the shower. 'How much would it cost to buy New York?'"
