Dear Ms. Bloom,

I have a school requirement i need to fill in which i ask a person that works in the career field i want to pursue and ask them a few questions. Its basically an interview, and i was wondering if you would mind answering a few. It would be a great honor in having such a great author accept an interview with me for my project.

Thank you for your time

Sincerely,
Joe

PS: i read your books growing up, and i still love them

Dear Judy,

My name is Faith and I have two brother's named Skyler and Kaiden. It is hard to get my things back from them sometimes. I love your books and I was so interested in them that I decided to write you. When I read "Freckle Juice", I was worried about Andrew. I hoped he didn't get really sick when he drank the recipe. I was happy that he didn't get really sick. My favorite part of the book was when Andrew warned Nicky about Sharon and her recipes. When I read "The Pain and the Great One", the brother reminded me of my younger brother. The sister reminded me of myself because she got to do stuff that her little brother couldn't do. I am getting ready to read "The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo". I wonder what it will be like. Can't wait to get started! Faith

Hello Judy,
I work at a local Middle School of several Middle Schools in this town. I came across one of your books, "Superfudge", in one of the science classrooms and I asked myself,"She's still writing books or is this book from the early 80's?"
I read your books when I was in my early/mid teens in the early 80's, when I was in private school in Central Florida. I really enjoyed reading your books when I was a little girl. I remember one day I was sitting in a bus reading one of your books on my way to a class/fieldtrip and I asked one of my teachers,"What is a wetdream?" Isn't that funny?
I wish I could go back to the 80's in Florida, reading your books, and going on weekend trips with my classmates and friends. You could write a book about me?!

Dear Judy,
I am a first-time author (of Edna In The Desert), and I am excited and humbled that someone compared me to you in a review. I can see how they might, I grew up reading your books. I never imagined, in my youth before the Internet, that I could someday come to a website where you would share your thoughts about the writing life. Your advice is great. I'm encouraged by the fact that you didn't have an agent until your third book (I don't have one!) and from what you said about rejection. This is really helpful as I begin my next book.
Thanks again for your books and for being you!

I'm from Sri Lanka. I started reading English books when I was 10 after reading your book Sheila The Great. I have almost all your books and still read them. My favorite is the Fudge series. I would be really glad if I can have an autograph from you.

Dear,Judy Blume

I think,since you have wrote four books about Fudge and one about Sheila you should write a story about Jimmy Fargo. About how he goes to Vermont to see his mother see if his parents will get back together. I love your books and that's why I want you to write a new one. I've read the whole Fudge series and I love it.

We think you write about really funny things and just wanted to say thank you for helping us enjoy our reading every day!

One last thing judy, you should make a book where Peter, fudge, tootsie, and Mr. and Mrs. Hatcher face a very, very serious ice storm (which breaks the Windows in the building and blocking people's doors, including the Hatcher's) and are snowed in for the entire month of December. Now Peter must survive a month in isolation with Fudge, something he has feared his whole life. It could be called Fudge-tastrophe (putting the word ''Fudge" in catastrophe).

dear judy blume, i love your' books. i have read all the fudge books, the pain and the great one, blubber, and i'm currently reading iggie's house. the fudge books rule by the way. i'm positive that's a familliar comment to you and your' books. fudge-a-mania is my personal favorite though. you have actually inspired me to be an author myself. one more thing, you should make sequels to ''otherwise known as sheila the great''. if peter has his book series, sheila should have her own!

Dear Mrs. Blume, I loved your books as a young girl and recently I had the pleasure of sharing one of your stories with my two young boys. We listened to your audio book, Double Fudge. My boys loved it! They have requested the whole series. What an amazing gift that you have....thank you.

Dear Judy Blume,
My Favorite book by you is Otherwise known as Sheila the great. I liked the part when Sheila's
dad said this funny thing. he said "Ah ha! I found a Sheila"! I also liked the cover of it.
The cover of the book has a dog shaking a pillow.
Your reader, Sophie

I read "Superfudge" when I was in Grade 3, and I remember laughing out loud reading it, it was such a delight for me: "How are you, Bert?"... “Well, I will tell you, my liver's turning green and my toenails are falling off.” That still cracks me up!

Thank you Judy Blume for introducing me to literature. I have been a voracious reader my entire life, and I credit those early years and your books for that, so much joy. Thank you.

Now my niece is 8 years old and I found my old copy, and purchased "Ramona Quimby", I am so happy and proud to give them to her, I hope she enjoys them as much as I did.

Thank you.

I had forgotten how important "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret" was in figuring out my own religious beliefs as a child. Then I listened to a song by Amanda Palmer, about you, and I cried. So, very belatedly: Thank you. And I hope you listen to that song too, If you haven't already. I imagine it would mean the world to Amanda.

Dear Ms. Bloom,
I was thrilled to select your name as the Great American Hero I am to portray during a special reception for third graders and our families at my elementary school. I will be preparing a speech, dressing like you, collecting props to represent you and even sharing a picture of you during my presentation. As luck would have it, I am visiting Key West next week and would love to take a picture in front of your house or even better get a picture with you - It would certainly make my presentation one of a kind - just like you. I'll be there on April 7&8, so let me know if you could help me in any way. Your friend, Maddie

Dear Judy,
I grew up reading your books, and I was very excited when my daughter started bringing home Fudge books to read. She LOVES them, and she can so relate to them. Recently, my 3rd grader was reading Superfudge. I was shocked when she brought it to me after reading the chapter "Santa Who" with all sorts of questions. I was shocked and disappointed that my daughter read this chapter in a 3rd grade reading level book. I wish you would consider taking that chapter out or rephrasing it. I skimmed through and didn't notice anything in that chapter that was extremely VITAL to the storyline. I still love your books, but I will reconsider letting my 3rd grader read them until I reread them!

How do you save a young girl from one of the most crime infested cities in the nation? You give her a book to read - one that she can love and feel through. For me that was Tales (of a 4th gd...), Are you there God... (which really walked me through puberty in a way that 2 older sisters and teasing brothers did not.
Thank you so much! Now I ready your books to my kids 9 (boy) and 11 (girl). Not because they can't, but because reading has become a beautiful family sport that allows us to laugh and snuggle and learn and love.
You were a gift from God. Thank you.

Hi Judy! Thank you for supporting me as I grew up. At 46, I decided to read Are You There God It's Me Margaret again… and I laughed and laughed at how important getting that period was to us all, only to be cursed for the rest of our years! HA! Anyway, I loved it again. Took me right back. But I would love to see you write "Are You There God It's Me Margaret and I am 56 and OMG"… I would enjoy know what happened to them all, including Grandma and Mr. Binaman (rhymes with Cinnamon!)… Thank you again. Just wanted to say hello.

Judy,
I just saw the film version of "Tiger Eyes". It was wonderful and it was great to see the characters come to life. Tiger Eyes has always been the book I go back to when a loved one has passed (unfortunately, way too many) and have bought copies for friends who have suffered a loss. I truly love your books: so hopeful and real!

Thank you,
