Judy Blume's 'Fudge' series available as e-books

Judy Blume's "Fudge" series has been a favorite with kids and adults alike for more than three decades, and we can only imagine the trend will continue as the five-book collection is made available as e-books.

Blume herself made the announcement on her Facebook page Thursday. "Imagine the fun Fudge would have with e-readers and other electronic devices," she writes. "On second thought, I don't even want to think about that."

The beloved author adds that she cherishes the idea of parents and kids sharing the series' adventures electronically. "Not that ebooks take the place of books between covers," she writes, "but a good story is a good story no matter the format."

"Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing," which introduced countless kids to fourth-grader Peter Hatcher and the antics of his younger brother, Fudge, turns 40 in 2012. Blume promises on her Facebook page to share more updates about Fudge's 40th anniversary.

    Fudge is 40? Good lord, now he's qualified for a Presidential run! Vote Farley Drexel Hatcher in 2012– a good name for him is "Mr. Money"!

    Fudge must have been Peter's half brother because I'm pretty sure Fudge's last name was Packer.
