Dear Mrs. Blume,

My third grade class just finished reading the last of the Fudge books. We have enjoyed reading the books all year long. We have laughed and laughed at Fudge's antics. We have had many great discussions about the stories throughout this school year. We are really going to miss Fudge, Peter, Tootsie, and the whole Hatcher family. Thank you for the fun times and memories.

Helloha Judy! (My catchphrase is Helloha.) My goal this Summer is to read all your books for teens. That includes, Deenie, Blubber, Forever, Fudge-a-mania, and Iggie's House. But that's not all. I am the biggest reader in my class, and I read, read, read! I already got a list of books I want to read over the Summer, and it includes 357 books already. (Whoah! Most of them are Babysitters Club. It's one of my favorite series.) I want to add more books, too!

Hi Judy!
I just want to say what a inspiration you are to all! I love your books, I have been reading them since I could read! I have not stopped there, I have read all of the age appropriate books that apply to me so far and let m tell you, I have read them all far more than once, I can recite at least 4 of your books from back to front now! Keep writing, you are an amazing women please never stop writing!

Hometown: Melbourne - Posted May 14, 2016 9:24 pm


I grew up reading your books. Tales of the fourth grade nothing and the whole series, was and still are the best booksI read as a child. I recently went and purchased them for my 9 year old son. To see him coming out of his room, with super fudge in his hand, and tears streaming down his face, as he tried to read out loud a paragraph from the book, that had him in stitches, pulled my heart strings!!! Thank you for that special moment, needless to say, he now call his younger sister "fudge"

Hometown: Austintown - Posted May 14, 2016 11:32 am


How many reviews did the book "Forever" get and what are the reviews and who are they from?
I think your a amazing writer I have read almost all of your books. You have inspired me to write books too. Just thank you Mrs.Blume for being such a amazing writer. I am a very big fan of yours. I have always wanted to meet you in person but I never have a chance to, so I say to you: Thank you and I love your books so very much.

Hi Judy, just re-discovered your books at the grand old age of 47! The first one I read was 'Are you there God, it's me Margaret' I was 10, it had such a profound effect on not only my life, but also on my friends, as we grew up in Glasgow, we passed around your many books, we grew with every book, and became young women alongside them. I often wanted to go back to those early days and read them for the first time again. The years passed by, life got in the way, as it does. Now I am a lady of leisure, living in the Middle East with my husband, proud owner of a Kindle, able to devour books once more with the vigour I had in those early days. Nothing like the smell of a book though.
Anyway just wanted to thank you for your books and how they were an integral part of my growing up, how they helped me through things I couldn't talk to my own mum about.
Hope you are well.
Thank you so much. Sandra xx

After obtaining my teaching certificate in 1980, I was a substitute teacher for about a year. Whenever I was assigned to an elementary school classroom I carried in my bag of tricks "Freckle Juice." When things got tough or I needed to capture attention - I'd pull out your book and soon had the the attention needed. I would stop reading with the promise of continuing after they finished the required class work. Never failed. Fast forward a few decades and I'm subbing again - and yes, "Freckle Juice" is still in my bag of tricks. Thanks.

Ms. Blume,
You are a great author,
If you could please write another book like the previous books, Are you there god? It's me Margret. And Deenie, and Just as long as we're together. You are my favorite author. Thanks for choosing to do what you do.

Abby PS Please recommend me some of your books.

Hometown: Evansville - Posted May 4, 2016 2:28 pm


Dear Ms. Blume,
Hi I read an article today where you said ""I'm done with long novels. This book ('Unlikely Event') took five years and I am 78, so it's a good one to go out on. But I'm not saying I won't do something smaller, shorter, that doesn't take so long. I have a little idea"

I wanted to ask if the idea that you have is for another fudge book? I Hope it is I would love to read another fudge book. Thank you so much.

As a board member of the Staten Island Reading Association, I would be thrilled if we could be fortunate enough to have Ms. Blume for our Annual Author's dinner. Please respond favorably. I have my fingers crossed.

Hometown: Chester, Pa. - Posted May 3, 2016 4:24 pm


Hello there Ms. Judy Blume. How are you? Well, I must say it has been several years since I last picked up one of your books. However, I never forgot you or them. The last one I recall reading was probably one of your most famous: Are "You There God? Its Me Again Margaret." I remember this book all to well. I especially remember reading the scene where Margaret and her friends were having a sleep over. They were all gathered together and began talking about their breast and wanting to wear bras. So then begins the crazy exercise, chant, "We must, we must, we must increase breast!" Hilarious. Then the boys walk past the room down the hall and began mimicking the girls.
This book Ms. Blume, was the very thing that made me more inquisitive about puberty and and a woman's changing body. I as a hound lady at that time had no idea what a "period" was. I went to ask my mom about and she, being old school refused to discuss it at that time. It wasn't until years later well into adult good I can look back and finally make the connection.
Also,s. Blumenthal I want to say thank you for your inspiration and entertainment over the years. I as a child rarely went outside to play whenever I had one of your books in my hand. I was consumed with living in the book and placing myself right there with Margaret. Ms. Blume you wouldn't believe I would become so engrossed in your books I literally couldn't hear my own mother talking to me. To this day she talks about how she I would scream on the top of her lungs to come and do the dishes. However, I couldn't hear her as I was upstairs in my room or somewhere behind a locked door locked reading! It became so bad Ms. Blume, that my mother took me to get my hearing tested because she thought something was seriously wrong! However, the doctor said I was perfectly find and could hear great! To be swept away like that into a world authors create is amazing! I can only hope to write like that someday.

Now that I am studying to become a teacher, I can't stress enough how important it is for children to read and be read to. It's sad how in today's society lots of children aren't ready to or don't enjoy reading. I just think it's because they haven't found the right book for them yet! However, I am so glad I have found the right books for me years ago. Your name and works are at the top of the list.
Thank you Judy Blume so much for taking so much time and energy to ensure that kids like me always had an escape from a boring, humdrum of a childhood.
Glad to see you writing again. Will start reading your books soon. Take care!

I have to share a real "QUIRK". You story begins in Dec. 1951....THE MONTH I MET MY HUSBAND
and ended in Feb.1987....THE MONTH HE DIED. and I was born and married in New Jersey.
The songs.....the TV shows....Paper Mill....etc.
It was like living that life again. Thanks so much

Hometown: Hayward, WI - Posted May 3, 2016 12:37 pm


I just finished your Summer Sisters and wanted to tell you that I had read a book remarkably similar a few weeks ago. Your book was published first, but Kristin Hannah's Firefly Lane from 2008 has a plot line very close: two girls growing up together, some dysfunctional families, one ends up marrying the other's boyfriend, one travels alot, one dies at the end. There's even a chapter titled Dancing Queen. Nothing prose-wise is lifted, and I know books can have similar plots, but I thought you might want to know. I'm a retired English teacher, and my students always loved your books! Fran

Dear Ms. Blume,
We love your book Superfudge! Our favorite and funniest part was when Fudge said, "M-a-i-n-e spells Maine, F-u-d-g-e spells Fudgie, and P-e-t-e-r spells Pee-tah and B-E-E-R spells Whiskey! We laughed so hard at this part and told our other classmates about it. We a have couple of questions for you. Why did you make Fudgie so rotten? Was there really worms in the worm cookies? How did you come up with this amazing book? Last but not least, How did you come up with what Uncle Feather said? Please email us back. We will be excited to hear from you.

Thank you so much!

Marian The Librarian

I call myself a 'writer' because I love the process more than anything in my life. I was going through some files today and found a page I had torn out and saved from a W/D's, NEW FAMILY, 6/28/88, page 140, by Bill Wylie. In large red letters it said at the top of the page, "A Conversation with JUDY BLUME . I hadn't read it in years. So many similarities between us. The main one being 3 children so close in age, 27, 22 and 20 (mine at the time). I managed to stop on my second marriage, however. I read that article again today ( 4/23/16) and, again, enjoyed every moment of it. Now I'm writing again, telling the tragic, amazing and triumphant story of my captivating childhood - from devastation to rising above the fray. I have dined with a queen and with some major stars (Liz Taylor) and traveled the world. Now it's time to finish what I started. Just wanted to say 'Thanks' for the new found
inspiration. And, congrats' on your amazing success.
With warm regards, Marian

Dear Judy, I just finished reading, In the Unlikely Event and LOVED IT!!! This book is our book club selection for this coming September. Our library has an adult book group that has met monthly for the last 15 years. I am anxious to discuss this book with the members. As I read the book, I thought of 9/11 and the effects that terror caused to people of all ages. Our family personally lost our 27 year old niece that day. The trauma and 'I remember what I was doing when I heard' will always be in the backs of our minds.
Thank you for sharing this incredible story. I will highly recommend your book to the patrons in our library.
Best of luck in all your writing endeavors.

Good Morning, Mrs. Blume
Today as I was sending an extended text to my husband while he works.. I was typing something with 'just' and somehow Judy popped up. IMMEDIATELY a eureka fell back to your books, me and my bff use to have reading contests on who finished the most! I had to be between 4th and 6th grade. I loved your books now I'm definitely going to read your older titles such as, "Wifey" and "Smart Women" and the most latest as well.
I'm a natural born writer, I just never started writing. There's this one book and title I've had my on my heart for years, I've named chapters and everything but it's not quite ready. And I am I no hurry to rush it, but looking you up this fine morning truly brought me to a special place.
Reading about your cause as far as being honest. Your fight against censorship and the freedom to read is so admirable and I want to follow in your footsteps. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.. you support intellectual freedom.

Thank You so much!
If you have any pointers please Email me.

Warm Regards,

^p.s. Do you think love Charlene is catchy? It's my middle name..

Hometown: Lompoc - Posted April 15, 2016 9:44 am


Hi Judy! My names Lucas and I wanted to share with you something; I was only twelve years old when I had heard you wrote adult novels also. The first adult novel I discovered was 'Wifey' When my mom was a little girl, she read alot of your books as a kid. Funny story; My grandmother (who is my mother's mother) bought her the book 'Wifey' in the eighties when my mother was very young because my grandmother didn't bother to see that it said 'An adult novel' on the cover and she just assumed it was a kids book because it was by "a kids author". Curious, I went to my mother and asked her about the book. Note that I was twelve years old at the time and she said "No! You may not read that book." Of course kids are going to break the rules, so I haven't read it yet, but I skimmed through some pages and my first thought was "Wow!" Not a bad wow, but a wow as in "I want to write adult novels like Judy Blume one day." The first adult novel I read by you was titled "Smart Women" and the adult novel I am currently reading now by you is "Summer sisters" and before you wonder, yes I am a boy and I read your adult novels that seem to be for a more lady audience, LOL! I plan on being a writer someday, an aspiring journalist. But I find great inspiration in your books, especially your adult novels and I plan on writing a book one day based on your vision!

Thanks for your time,

P.S. Here's a writing suggestion; What do you think happens to Sandy from "Wifey"? What do you think she would be like today in this day and age? I'm sure your adult fans would love to read a book about Sandy returning. Maybe she has kids that go to college. Or maybe she regrets what she did in her past. Or maybe she is still the same today. It's up to you! What do you think? Should Sandy return? I'll leave that up to you!

I look back as my childhood with fondness because of the hours of enjoyment you gave me with your books. One of the reasons I became such an avid reader was because of them. I recently opened a box that I had brought back from Canada when I visited my parents. Inside was all my treasures....on the bottom was your books. The top one was my favorite all bent and worn, my copy of Are you there God ? It's me Margaret. I cried. The book was what started me attending Bible Studies as a teenager now as an adult I teach them to 4th and 5th graders. I even found my copy of Forever that I thought my Mom had thrown out with a note from her saying she was their to listen if I had any questions with a date from 1985 when I was 17. Priceless memories because of your incredible storytelling. Thank you ! Thank you !

Dear Judy,
I have been an avid reader all my life (starting young with your early books : ) I have never written a book review before, but I just finished In the Unlikely Event and wanted to let you know how much I thoroughly enjoyed it. That must have been such a tough subject for you to write on after all these years. I am glad you got to share your story. I was so captivated by the characters, style, and story that I could not put down your book and finished it in less than 24 hours. So don't listen to the haters if you see any reviews that don't sound right. Bravo and thank you again for another classic. Enjoy life, you have made it so much better for so many of use through the gifts of your talent and your novels.
