Peter, the fourth grade nothing, is beyond exasperated with his three-year-old brother Fudge. Whenever Fudge acts up, he is called on to help, to cajole, or even to take the blame. My son found Fudge's antics very funny - there was a description of a birthday party filled with equally Fudge-like toddlers that he particularly enjoyed - but he also empathised with Peter, having a naughty little brother of his own.
Judy Blume's streak of psychological realism runs through this, even under a lively children's story for 8+ years. Peter regularly steps in to reflect that he is being treated unjustly in comparison to Fudge, because he is the "good son", and not little and cute, and will stand on his head in the kitchen to encourage Fudge to eat, and not snap back when his mother blames him for Fudge falling off a climbing frame and knocking out his front teeth. Eventually though, Fudge's naughtiness becomes focused on Peter's pet turtle Dribble.... and that is going too far.
