7 Genre: Realistic Fiction Realistic fiction is untrue, but it could actually happen in real life. In some books, some events, people, and places may even be real.Realistic fiction seems like real life with characters because they deal with real life problems. The action can happen no matter what, and it usually takes place in the present.The situations are true or could be, but the characters are made up. Realistic Fiction may include "real people" characters who have actually lived.
8 RecommendationsThis is a book that would be well suited for kids with younger siblings because they can probably relate to Peter's difficulties with Fudge.We really enjoyed reading this book. It was good and fun to read. It was really funny too. We think any fourth grader would like it because it is about a fourth grader like us!We also like how it is written like a fourth grader.
