    I've only read Super Fudge, but Peter and Fudge are great!

    It's just too bad that Roderick Heffley has no redeeming qualities whatsoever (that I've read, at least) and is as two-dimensional as his pictorial depictions. =P

    I'm having trouble thinking of other brothers in Middle Grade fiction who haven't already made your list. I'll get back to you if any come to mind. =)

    1. They really are - I love the way Judy Blume writes about siblings.

      You're right - Rodrick is incredibly two-dimensional. I think we might get that sense because we only see him from Greg's point of view, but still, it gets old after a while.

      I'm sure there are others, but I haven't thought of any either!
