"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 3-5 Graeber deals with a normal and recurrent childhood theme: a child's desire to have a pet and the parental skepticism that goes along with it. She also portrays some of the responsibilities pet ownership demands in this story of nine-year-old Chad, whose wish for a puppy is curtailed when his mother finds out that she is going to have twins. All ends well, though, as Chad proves that he can care for Fudge, and he also learns that he has to make some sacrifices of his own in the process. Characters are real, the action moves quickly, and the story line will interest children. While Chad may be more understanding than most children, his responses and solutions are believable. Sporadic full-page pencil drawing, although somewhat stiff, break up the large-print text. Both the appealing cover and the topic will attract young readers.
