Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume was the first in a series of books that focused on the lives of Peter Hatcher and his younger brother Farley “Fudge” Hatcher.  The focus of the first book is how Peter views Fudge as the favorite and most chaotic member of the Hatcher family.

Over the course of the book Fudge creates chaos by first refusing to eat, by causing chaos at a family dinner party, by breaking his front teeth at the part and finally by claiming to eat Peter’s newly acquired pet turtle, Dribble. This is found to be correct when Fudge is brought to the hospital where Dribble is removed however has died in Fudge’s stomach before he is rescued.

What does Fudge eats?

In this tale by Judy Blume,  Farley Fudge Hatcher eats the turtle which is newly bought by Peter (Fudge's brother), namely DRIBBLE. Hence this truth is first denied but it is proved when Fudge is taken to the hospital where Dribble is found dead in Fudge's stomach.
