Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great is a children's novel by Judy Blume, first published in 1972. It's the second book in the Fudge Series. The book centers on Sheila Tubman, a ten-year-old girl who masks her insecurities with a much more self-assured, confident persona. In truth, she suffers from fears ranging from arachnophobia (fear of spiders and other arachnids), cynophobia (fear of dogs), and aquaphobia (fear of water).

Mouse, Russ Bindel, and Sam Sweeney agree. The four of us haven't switched activities yet, even though we are supposed to try something new every week. Denise says by the end of the summer we should. each have a really good bowl to take home with us. My mother is not as happy about pottery as I am. This is because I come home covered with clay every day. It even gets in my hair and ears. The only bad things about pottery are I have to put up with a lot of shampoos and Mom is always chasing me with the QTips. Russ Bindel's mother runs the camp office.

I remembered liking this book as a kid, so I got it for my daughter, since it's the 2nd book in the Fudge series (after Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing, which she'd just read). She liked it. I found myself reading it while waiting for her at swim practice, and re-appreciating the way that Judy Blume gets in the mind of kids, telling you with humor what they are thinking without telling you outright. I'd forgotten how masterful she is, and why I loved her books so as a kid. This book reminded me. Sheila acting as if Peter's dog is disgusting and shouldn't be in the elevator (because she's afraid of dogs), telling her friend her mother won't let her go swimming (because she can't swim-- as is immediately apparent when her mother mortifies her by telling her it's time for her swim lesson) . . . It all takes you back to that time in your life. Blume is the queen.

I grew up in the 70's and 80's reading Judy Blume so I wanted to introduce my kids to her books. I have noticed some slight changes in this kindle version. There weren't cd's to listen to when I read this story as a child but it's in this book. There also isn't a copy machine at the summer camp. Why are already published books changed for new generations? I want my kids to know what it was like when I grew up without all this technology. Please don't change books! It doesn't deter from this great book though, my kids loved it!

Read this book as a child and now I got the pleasure of reading it with my child who enjoyed it just as much.

I just bought this book on Kindle and re-read it fojr the first time since I was about ten. I forgot how much I liked it. This book is adorable, but also very real. Blume always does such a great job at pulling you into the intimate personal lives of all of her characters-- and this novel is no exception.

As much as I love the entire "Fudge" series, I wish that Judy would have written more books from Sheia Tubman's perspective. In the books written from Peter Hatcher's perspective, Sheila is portrayed as a snooty, annoying twit living near the Hatchers. She has no real identity in these books beyond Peter's antagonizer. However, in 'Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great,' she is a normal preteen girl who fights with her older sister and faces her very real fears of swimming and sleeping alone at night. She isn't the jerk that Peter Hatcher makes her out to be; she's just like any other girl you'd meet in junior high.

One thing that I truly appreciated with this book is that instead of focusing on relationships with younger siblings, this book speaks to those of us (including myself) who are the youngest. Sheila's fighs with her older sister Libby are almost identical to the ones I used to have with my own older sister at that age. I couldn't help but smile at the obvious sibling rivalry that peppered this novel. Some things never change!

I bought this book because we loved Tales of Fourth Grade Nothing so much. I am actually reading this to my son who really likes it even though it is about a girl.

I'm reading the Fudge series to my son at night, and I just finished reading Sheila the great to him. First, let me say this book is great. It diggs deep into a character, sheila, from the first book(tales of a forth grade nothing), and gives you a lot of insight about her. I enjoyed the change of scenery from NYC to Tarrytown, which is a great change of pace. I enjoyed reading about her family and the cast of characters that fill the book. Honestly everything about the book is great.

Here's the ONE thing about it though,

No Hatchers, No Peter No Fudge. Now I'm not saying that I was falsly led to believe that they would be in this book, What I am saying is that I missed them. This is a book in the Fudge series where Fudge isn't found one page, not one. It's a great book for sure, but if you enjoy reading about Peter and Fudge, skip this one.

I have always enjoyed this book ever since I read it for the first time when I was a little kid, and I still enjoy it now reading it as an adult.

Sheila Tubman is afraid of dogs, spiders, scary noises, swimming, and monsters and ghosts in the middle of the night. When her parents take her and her older sister Libby to Tarrytown for the summer Sheila has to face her fears. Lucky for Sheila she has some good friends to help her on the way, including a new best friend named Mouse.

This book is timeless. It is one of my favorites.

I read these books as a child and was so excited to find them for my daughter who is 9. Yay!
