Five on Friday: August 25th Edition

1. What book or books were special to you in your childhood?
Too many to mention! Anything written by Shel Silverstein. The Ramona books. The Judy Bloom books (Fudge and all)

2. What was particularly special or memorable about those books?
Their humor and the characters.

3. Have you re-read any of them as an adult?
No, but I found out Judy Bloom wrote 2 more Fudge books after SuperFudge. I do want to read them.

4. If so, were the books as good as you remembered them?
Like I said, haven’t re-read any yet.

5. What do you think about movies being made out of children’s classics (like the Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of The Rings, etc.)?
I see nothing wrong with it. I loved the Narnia movie. The LOTR were good, but not something I have ever felt the need to rewatch.

Superfudge was an awesome book!! My 7 year old bought a 3-pack of Judy Blume books from a school book fair. It had Superfudge, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, and Fudge-A-Mania. I love them!! He of course thinks it’s “weird” that I read Superfudge when I was his age, This from the kid who has asked me if we had color tv when I was a kid?!!?! LOL!!
