Double Fudge is a 2002 children’s novel by Judy Blume and the fifth and final in the Fudge series. The Hatcher family goes to Washington, D. Fudge finds out that his cousin is also named Farley Drexel Hatcher. His interest in money is a common theme throughout the story.
In this latest installment of the series, Fudge is still five years old and takes up an obsessive and greedy love for money and after some talking with his family, they decide to take him to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, D. That plan doesn’t work, and instead they meet up with their long-lost cousins, the Howie Hatchers. There is Howie, a park ranger who resides in Hawaii and is traveling the country, his pregnant wife, Eudora, their perfect, slightly overindulged twin daughters, Flora and Fauna, who are sometimes nicknamed the “Natural Beauties” and the “Heavenly Hatchers,” and last but not least, three-year-old Farley Drexel Hatcher, which is also Fudge’s real name. Peter dubs him “Mini” and the nickname sticks.
Peter’s family is taken aback when the Howie Hatchers invite themselves to move in with Peter’s family for weeks in their Upper West Side apartment. Near the end of the story, in a semi-homage to the ending of the first novel, Mini swallows Fudge’s baby tooth that just fell out, making him furious at him because he was planning to get a dollar for it from the tooth fairy.
After the Howie Hatchers leave with Mini to go to the hospital, Fudge throws a temper tantrum over what Mini did, saying he hated him. Then Peter tells Fudge that he felt the same way when Fudge swallowed Peter’s pet turtle, Dribble, in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
