Dear Judy

Thank you for sharing in your expertise with an awesome didactic talent. I enjoy every single second of your Masterclass in writing and hope someday being able to apply your tips and tricks and not just trying. I restarted writing after 35 years of silence.

Thank you so much. Diana

I've been a huge fan since childhood, and have students now reading several of your books. One student in particular was introduced to "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret" by her mother, whose name is Margaret. I'd love to purchase an autographed copy for this amazing mother, who is sharing her love and love of literature with her daughter. How could I go about ordering such a gem?

Hello Ms. Blume. I just wanted to say thank you for all of the amazing years I've enjoyed reading your books. You made me want to read & I always loved reading about Peter & Fudge, Sheila, Margaret, Tony, & Iggie, just to name a few. You will always remain a special person in my childhood, & even now, once-in-a-while I still pick up one of those classics & enjoy all over again! Thank you for the joy of reading!

Dear Judy,

I am a sixth grader, and you are an inspiration to me. This year, I am working on a project and You are my topic. I would love to learn about your struggles and how you overcame them successfully to become an iconic writer, and how children's books were different during the time you started writing. It will be great, if I could interview you through Email, phone-call, or whatever works for you. I really hope I can interview you. Awaiting your response.
Thanks,

I remember reading your books while in elementary school. I had so much fun reading the fudge stories that, in my opinion, would easily rival the Goosebumps books. I haven't read them recently, but if I were to, I imagine they would be just as fun to read as they were back then.

Hi Judy- I'm loving your Master Class so much! You mentioned that you named your book As Long As We're Together after a line in a song-- but couldn't think of the song. I think it's from a Danny Kaye song called Laugh it Off and Upsy Daisy.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loSiJmg8xfk My daughter sang it and won a talent show in 4th grade :: )

I'm writing a fantasy novel with my adult daughter and I love hearing your take on writing characters, making them real to you, the author, so that they'll be real to readers, etc. Maybe one day you'll read our book! It's hard work, but so much fun! Thanks again for sharing your experience and enthusiasm!

Dear Judy Blume—I rhought you’d like to know that as a public school K-12 librarian in New York, I used to buy all your books for my school libraries. The sixth grade girls used to cluster around my desk, asking “Mrs.Bush, will you buy a copy of “Forever?” I told them it was in the jr. high and high school libraries.
“4rh grade nothing” was WONDERFUL for reassurance at that vulnerable age.

Did you ever read Norah Ephron’s loving tribute to the Althorp?
Best wishes, Ann Bush

Dear Judy Blume,
My name is Cassie. I loved your book Then Again, Maybe I Won’t. I loved how you portrayed the characters. My favorite character was Tony. I felt like I was living his life while reading the book. I loved how you made all of the characters special in their own way.
I loved how Victor was able to come up with an idea to make sure that Ralph had his baby. Also, when Victor was able to make money from the idea. They were able to get a new house and a maid. I did not like the maid because she was mean. Grandma wants to cook. Also, she is the one getting paid, so why is she arguing? She should be quiet and do what she is told because at the end of the month, who is paying her? I think that she should get fired.
Even though I did not like the maid, I loved the way Tony was portrayed. Tony was a kind and nice boy, but weird at times too. I learned a lesson from his stomach problem. I learned that if something is bothering you, you have to tell the person what is bothering you so the problem can be solved. From the character Tony, I also learned that not everyone is nice. Such as the boy Tony thought he was friends with Joel. He was nice around parents, but was really a mean kid. I learned from this that not everyone is nice. Sometimes, people do not show their true colors and will be nice to your parents but mean to you by yourself.
I wanted to know inspired you to write this book? Was it your own experiences that made you think of this story? Was it just your imagination? Was it a story one of your family members told you or a friend. I wanted to know because I was wondering how to write a story of my own.
I loved reading your book so much. It was so good. I could not put it down! I would really love to meet you one day. You are an inspiration for everyone in the world. You inspire people each and every day.
Sincerely,
Cassie D.

Im reading your whole series of Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing. I attend 4th grade at Riddle Brook School in Bedford.

I look forward to reading more of your novels - keep up the good work.

My name is Lola. I am 11 years old and in 6th Grade. Your book really impacted me. I started your book on a Saturday and finished it the next day! I felt that I could really relate to your book in all sorts of ways. While reading your book, I felt like I was normal. I felt amazing while reading that book. I honestly looked up that book just to see if there was a series because of how great it was! I write to you to let you know how much I loved it!

Hello Judy! I took your masterclass and I just completed it just now. Hearing about your experience taught me as much about life as writing and books. I'm glad I had the privilege to take your class. And I will sit down and finish my book—I used to write books all the time when I was younger and I think financial problems in our family distracted me away from writing. I want to also treat people with the same compassion as you do!

We love you Judy!

All the best,

Dear Judy,

I love writing since I was 14 years old. I tried to write a book in which it mixed between what really happened in my daily life and what I wanted to be or to do. Cause I did not have any chance or opportunity to show everyone the real me, the truth me. So writing, to me, is a way to express myself.

I would love to learn more from you to make it more easier. Stories and ideas are stuck in my head and I want to write it down, but ...

I hope you can help so I want to send you this email.

I am looking forward to hear from you.

Best regards,

Hello Mrs. Judy Blume,

My name is Judy, as well.
Growing up, I peed in my pants in the 3rd grade and at school the children would tease me and call me Judy Cooty...shake your booty. To my dismay, it bothered me a great deal. However, it gave me time to get away and use my imagination as I read all of your books.

Thank you for writing. I wish I wrote to you sooner because I just lost my only sister from breast cancer. I wish you the very best.

Dear Judy Blume
I would like to say how much me and my mum loved the Fudge books. I would like you to write another Fudge book I found them really funny. I don't have any ideas though. I first read Superfudge and I enjoyed it so much it inspired me to read the other books. When I was in year2 and going into year3 Superfudge was a present from my teacher.

Andi, Catarina, Jaylee, and Tynell

Dear Ms. Blume,

We are fourth grade students in a book club and we just finished your book, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Our names are Andi, Catarina, Jaylee, and Tynell. We go to Barrett Elementary School in Arlington, Virginia. Where are you from and where do you live? We want to know more about you.
The book was funny and interesting. One really funny part was when Fudge said Eat it or wear it! It made us all laugh. It’s making us laugh right now as we write this. It was interesting because we learned that Peter’s life was difficult with Fudge. I (Catarina) can relate to that because I have brothers that bother my pet birds, just like Fudge bothered Peter’s pet, Dribble. My brothers (Jaylee) bother my dog and me A LOT. I (Andi) also have a connection because sometimes other people come to our house and bother our pet turtles. They put their heads in their habitat and it disturbs them. When my (Tynell) cat first came to our house, my dad would annoy it, so I can relate to this book, too.
We loved the book even though the end was sad. We cried a little bit and were totally shocked. Our eyes are watering right now. It made us feel happier that Peter got a dog. Fudge definitely won’t be able to eat a dog. We give this book a 10 out of 10.
A SHELFIE is basically a rating and a summary with words and emojis. The reason we call it a SHELFIE is because it’s like a ‘selfie’ because we are taking a picture with it AND because when we finished the book, it’s like we are adding it to our very own book SHELF….SHELFIE! We are including the SHELFIES that we made in our book club and we are putting them in an email to you.
We have some questions for you. Are you making another book? We are planning on reading the other books but we are hoping you make more! We were also curious if you thought about making a Tales of a FIFTH Grade Nothing as part of a series. It could start with the same characters and be about Fudge being jealous of the new dog, Turtle. What inspired you to write this book? Do you have siblings like we do?

Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you can, please, please, please write us back. We would love to hear from you!!!

Sincerely,
Andi, Catarina, Jaylee, and Tynell

We just finished listening to Fudge-a-Mania on disc. Having read the book, we knew we would like it. Your voice was the big surprise. We've listened to many books on disc including those narrated by famous actors. You are far and away the very best, so smooth and pleasant. You even gave the different characters appropriate and identifiable voices. It was a fantastic job.
