Farley Drexel Hatcher is back, but nobody better call him that! He may be five, but he’s still just Fudge in Judy Blume’s Fudge-a-mania. This time, Fudge tries his big brother’s patience by announcing his upcoming marriage to Peter’s nemesis Sheila Tubman. Making matters worse, Peter’s parents agree to spend three weeks in Maine with Sheila and her family. To ease the pain, Peter invites his friend Jimmy Fargo, explaining that it won’t be so bad since Sheila’s family will stay in a different house. But after a ten-hour car ride with Uncle Feather the Myna Bird, Turtle the dog, five-year-old Fudge, and baby sister Tootsie, the Hatcher family arrives in Maine only to discover that the houses are actually attached, connected through a door in the wall. Oh, and Sheila, who hates dogs, has a new puppy. Before Peter can overcome his shock, Turtle runs off and gets sprayed by a skunk. The two families are in for a long vacation, but no one is going anywhere until after the wedding! Blume’s recognizable characters and universal childhood themes make reading Fudge-a-mania a genuine treat for tweens.
