Possible Answers


1.  Make a list of phrases that describe the Peter, the main character in the book Superfudge?
Possible Answer:  the oldest Hatcher child, angry about his mom having a baby, has a best friend named Jimmy, thinks his ears are too big, doesn't want to move, has a dog for a pet, lives in New York City


2.  The author Judy Blume does not tell the reader the age of Sheila Tubman's mother.  How old do you think she is and why?
Possible Answer:  I think Sheila's mom is about thirty-six years old.  Peter talks about  Sheila's sister, Libby, being thirteen years old and that he guessed that Sheila's mom was older than his mother.  Peter's mother was thirty-four years old at the time.  And if Peter's  mom and Sheila's mom had a baby at the same age, that would mean Sheila's mom was two years older than Peter's mom.


3.  Fudge's favorite book is Arthur the Anteater.  What is your favorite book?  Why?
Possible Answer:  My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  It is my favorite because it is the first Harry Potter book.  At first I didn't like it.  I'm glad I stuck with it and finished it because then I had to read all of the other Harry Potter books.  I like them because I learn a lot about wizards and muggles.  I have also learned a lot about Hogwarts the school that Harry and his friends attend.


4.  Give reasons why you believe Jimmy Fargo and Peter are best friends.
Possible Answer:  There is one place in the book where it says that Peter tell Jimmy everything.  This is the number one reason why I think they are best friends.  That's what best friends are for.  Even when they get mad at each other, they still are friends.  Like the time Peter tells Jimmy that he will be moving to Princeton.  First Jimmy says he never wants to speak to him again.  After a while he realizes what he has done and goes back to apologize.   These are some of the reasons whey I think they are best friends.


5.  Do you think Peter likes living in New York City.  Give reasons for you answer.
Possible Answer:  I think Peter likes it in New York City because his best friend lives there.  He also goes to school there and probably is used to the area.  Another reason is his parents told him he should give his dog away if he didn't want to use the Pooper Scooper.  He decided to keep the dog, even though he didn't like the new law.  So he must have liked living there to keep his dog and pick up after him.
