Peter Hatcher’s younger brother, Fudge has developed an obsession for money. This worries the family so Grandmother suggests a trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the Bureau of Printing and Engraving as a cure. While the family is touring, they run into long-lost cousin Howie Hatcher and his family from Honolulu. Cousin Howie introduces them to his twin daughters Flora and Fauna and his son who is named Farley Drexel Hatcher - just like Fudge! When the Howie Hatcher family decides to extend their vacation and visit their New York relatives, the visit creates many funny and embarrassing moments for all.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2004-2005)
