Praise for Judy Blume and the Fudge books:
“Each [Fudge book] is packed with wacky earthy disasters that are her trademark and that children love to read about . . . Judy Blume has a knack for knowing what children think about and an honest, highly amusing way of writing about it.” —The New York Times
“It’s a pleasure to watch a talented author like Judy Blume consistently create books that reflect a
remarkable ability for combining humor with perceptive insight into a child’s world.” —Publishers Weekly

reading in this story.” —Children’s Digest on Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

ちなみに、Judy Blume（著者）のFudge books（“Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing”に始まるシリーズ）の主役Peter君がちょい役としても登場しており、Fudgeファンの方には外伝として読んでもおもしろいかもしれません。
As much as I love the entire "Fudge" series, I wish that Judy would have written more books from Sheia Tubman's perspective. In the books written from Peter Hatcher's perspective, Sheila is portrayed as a snooty, annoying twit living near the Hatchers. She has no real identity in these books beyond Peter's antagonizer. However, in 'Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great,' she is a normal preteen girl who fights with her older sister and faces her very real fears of swimming and sleeping alone at night. She isn't the jerk that Peter Hatcher makes her out to be; she's just like any other girl you'd meet in junior high.
One thing that I truly appreciated with this book is that instead of focusing on relationships with younger siblings, this book speaks to those of us (including myself) who are the youngest. Sheila's fighs with her older sister Libby are almost identical to the ones I used to have with my own older sister at that age. I couldn't help but smile at the obvious sibling rivalry that peppered this novel. Some things never change!
Sheila Tubman is afraid of dogs, spiders,￼ scary noises, swimming, and monsters and ghosts in the middle of the night. When her parents take her and her older sister Libby to Tarrytown for the summer Sheila has to face her fears. Lucky for Sheila she has some good friends to help her on the way, including a new best friend named Mouse.
This book is timeless. It is one of my favorites.
