Director’s Notes:

In Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Peter Hatcher has three things: an assignment, a turtle, and Fudge, his little brother.
The assignment is a difficult one in which Peter must write about the most important thing that happened to him during the year. 
As Peter remembers the significant events in his life, he also realizes that Fudge is at the centre of them all - and not in a good way. 
At times it seems to Peter that Fudge has been placed on this earth simply to annoy him and make his life difficult. 
Anyone who has a sibling will admit they have asked themselves “what were my parents thinking?!?”. 
As we journey through the year with Peter, we laugh at Fudge’s antics as Peter struggles to find his place in the family and accept his little brother. 
Peter learns that sibling relationships can outlast picture dictionaries, shoes, dentists, fame, and turtles. 
They flourish in a thousand incarnations of closeness and distance, warmth, loyalty and distrust. 
We discover, through Peter and Fudge, that brothers really are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and
cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way.
