Publishing her first novel in 1969, Blume is credited as one of the first authors to write YA novels about topics that some still consider to be taboo. According to Blume, "I wanted to be honest. And I felt that no adult had been honest with me. We didn't have the information we should have had." Blume has received praise for addressing the common, but often unspoken worries of her fans from masturbation and menstruation to teen sex , birth control , and death

Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing
TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE NOTHING is a children\'s novel written by American author Judy Blume and published in 1972 . It is the first in the Fudge series and was followed by Superfudge , Fudge-a-Mania , and most recently by Double Fudge . Although Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great features many of the same characters as the series, it does not fit exactly in the continuity of it because it only focuses on Peter's classmate (who later becomes his stepcousin), Sheila Tubman . Originally, the book featured illustrations by Roy Doty , but all post 2002 reprints of it have omitted the pictures. The story focuses on a nine-year-old boy named Peter Warren Hatcher and his relationship with his two-and-a-half-year-old brother, Farley Drexel "Fudge" Hatcher . Farley hates the sound of his legal name, and prefers Fudge for any and all occasions

China Painting
CHINA PAINTING, or PORCELAIN PAINTING, is the decoration of glazed porcelain objects such as plates, bowls, vases or statues. The body of the object may be hard-paste porcelain , developed in China in the 7th or 8th century, or soft-paste porcelain (often bone china ), developed in 18th-century Europe. The broader term CERAMIC PAINTING includes painted decoration on lead-glazed earthenware such as creamware or tin-glazed pottery such as maiolica or faience . Typically the body is first fired in a kiln to convert it into a hard porous bisque . Underglaze decoration may then be applied, followed by glaze, which is fired so it bonds to the body. The glazed porcelain may then be painted with overglaze decoration and fired again to bond the paint with the glaze
