Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Superfudge

Superfudge - Judy Blume

I loved this book as a kid, but I have to ditch this copy; it's been updated and I want my edition to be the horribly outdated one I read as a kid.  I'm certain when I read this the first time Peter did not ask Santa for an mp3 player or a laptop computer.

 

Still, most of the book is unchanged and it's less hilarious to adult me as it was to kid me but only because adult me gets what's going on as Peter's life gets turned upside down with a move and a new baby sister and a change in his father's employment status.  However, adult me still thought the part where Fudge tried to sell, give away, and finally pay someone to take, his sister was as hilarious as it was the first time I read it.

 

Superfudge is as relevant as it ever was; I hope kids continue to discover Judy Blume for years to come.
