Hi, it is Cayley

I have a complete Judy Blume Diary. Its the only diary I kept - the rest I burned because I was too embarrassed to see what I wrote in them. This one is actually a little cute. I was 16 and 16. Its beautifully written even if I do say so myself. I would love to publish it, with names changed to protect the not so innocent, but I think you would get a giggle. It's so full of teenage angst. It's on your pages but in my writing. Let me know if you're interested.

NPR says "'There's no Judy Blume book' for how to respond to a request for naked images, Nancy Jo Sales tells Fresh Air with Terry Gross."

Maybe it's time there is one. You've handled many issues quite well in your works for young people. It's a new era with new issues.

Just finished N THE UNLIKELY EVENT. Had to tell you that you got it ALL right - those years - you brought back memories. Then going into the internet and reading your essay about you and Mary. That was me and Harriett -
Many friends of that era gone - you wrote:"...to have someone to remember with you."
Yes. Such a need.
I chatted with you once in an elevator at an SCBWI conference in CA. Thanks for all you've done for children's writers -

Hello Judy
Just wanted to let you know that another generation of children have discovered your stories about Fudge. I read them to my children in bed before they went to sleep and now my son has grown up and become a teacher and encouraged his class to read them and of course they love them too.

Dear Judy Blume,
Hi I'm Taylor. I have read so many of your books and watched so many videos about you. It would be my dream to meet you but I live in California. I really hope you get this. Thanks a lot. By the way I've read Deenie, Are You There God It's me Margret, Blubber, Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing, and Super Fudge.

Love, Taylor

Dear Judy Blume,
Hi. My name is Jordan and I am 9 years old. I really really love your Fudge books. The first one I read was ďTales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.Ē Then I read Sheila the Great, SuperFudge and Fudge-a-mania. My mom reads them to me as a bedtime story. Now I just started ďDouble Fudge.Ē

I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS. Why donít you ever show Peterís birthday? And why donít you have any pictures in your book? (because itís more fun that way).

And I just want to let you know that I live on the upper west side - in 165 West End Avenue - Lincoln Towers. Thatís West 68th Street - really near where Peter from the book lives.

Itís so great that I am writing to you. I hope you can write back.

Dear Mrs. Blume,

We like your creative and exciting books. Fudge is awesome because he is hilarious!

Where do you get your ideas for your books? Are your books based on real characters? We wish we could write just like you.

Can you write a book about Fudge getting older? What about a book about Tootsie being like Fudge when Fudge was young?

Thank you for writing these amazing books that kids all around the world like to read.

Your readers,

Hi my is Haley. I chose you as my author for our class author study because I love your books and I love Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I am 9 years old, I live in Kentucky, and I am funny.
The first book I read was Fudge-a-Mania. What I liked about the book was when Peter ate a fly and was a part of the I.A.A.F club. I have questions for you for the book I read. How did you come up with this book idea? Also how did you come up with the characters? I have some questions about you. What was your favorite author when you grew up and what was your favorite subject in school? Also when is your next book coming out and how old were you when you started writing?

Hi Judy Blume I just got finished reading tales of a forth grade nothing at school it was a very funny book to read....now I am starting to read another book of yours called fudge-a-mania so far I am on chapter 2 chapter 1 was funny when Fudge kept saying pee-tah instead of peter that was my favouite part!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also my favouite part in the book tales of a fourth grade nothing was when the dad poured the cereal on Fudges head cause he was acting like the family pet dog it was very funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hometown: Barbados - Posted February 12, 2016 12:08 pm


I just started In The Unlikely Event and the second paragraph says "...dials her fifteen-year-old daughter, Eliza, at school, but gets her machine". This is 1987. I find it "unlikely" that a 15 year old would have a cell phone in 1987. Help! I can't get past this. What was Judy thinking?

I was watching @Midnight last night and while I can't remember the context of why the answer was ''Are You There God, It's Me Margaret (going through menopause' - I thought Brillaint! You YA books first came out when I was growing up and how amazing it would be to revisit some of those characters as they aged like your readers. Who did they all grow up to be?

Dear Ms. Blume,

Hello my name is Jack and I am a third grade student at Johnson Elementary School in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. I am a big fan of your books. I first chose your books because my second grade teacher recommended them. So I read them all the time. You are a very good author.

The first book of yours I read was, Double Fudge. I enjoyed reading it because it was funny. My favorite part of the book was when Fudge tried using his fake money. This made me wonder how you get your ideas for writing. I have another question too, when did you first start writing your books?

Thank you for reading my letter. I like writing books like you. How did you get your books published so other people can read them? Also, do you have any other books that are going to be published soon?

Thanks for writing great books,

Hello my nickname is is South Korea as on top. I saw your book [tales of a fourth grade nothing]. My favorite and funny chapter is chapter.6 Fang hits the town because it is about Hatcher's family life andabout Fudge's trouble. I think Peter is tired about Fudge. Fudge has ruined Peter's poster. So
he's mother hits him and Peter is safe from Fudge
because about the latch. If I finish reading this
book I want to read about your another book. į®ĽÁ«’

What is your favorite book you've written? Can you write a nother Fudge and Peter book? How did you come up with the name Fudge and Peter ? Thank you Love Talia : )

Hometown: Ballarat - Posted January 29, 2016 4:52 am


Dear Judy Blume,
I am a fan of your books - especially the ones about Fudge and Peter Hatcher. I like Fudgemania and Double Fudge the best. But I was wondering if you were writing another book about Fudge and Peter. I'd love that. I have a few ideas - ignore them if they are useless.
Peter, Fudge, Mum, Dad, Tutsi, Grandma Mureul Sheila, Sheila's grandfather, Henry the building manager, and Olivia Osterman all go down to Soho for the day for Beverley and Frank Fargo's wedding. It's a disaster, because Anita - Frank's ex - turns up and apologises to Frank, and explains why she had to leave. It's a good reason and Frank, Peter and Jimmy all feel really guilty for getting angry at her. Then Frank has to choose between Beverly and Anita. The decision is yours!
Soon afterwards, Olivia Osterman celebrates her 100th birthday, and Peter buys another dog. A smaller dog. Fudge wants to call it Mr Money, but Peter calls it Rufus George. Georgey or Rufus for short.
Mr Fargo's art career drops dramatically, and they can't afford their apartment anymore. So they move into Beverley's or Anita's home,which is near Peter's apartment.
And Jimmy accidentally lets Peter's crush he likes her, and they end up together, going on dates. But after time, Peter gets a crush on the new girl at school. And his girlfriend finds out...
Then there is Fudge. Fudge, Fudge, Fudge, Fudge, Fudge. He is in prep this year, and is flunking everything. Maths, English, the lot! Even P.E. It turns out "Rat Face" is his teacher, but nobody recognizes her. So, plotting revenge, she flunks him at everything he has. But when Parent/Teacher Interviews are organized, she accidentally slips some information about her old kindergarten, where Fudge went. Then Tutsi sees a mouse on a poster on one of the walls, and says "rat", just when mum says "you're face, it's looks like", meaning "familiar". Then it clicks.
Oh and Tutsi can speak sentences. And Grandma Mureul and Buzy Senior take a two-month long cruise on a very romantic ship. Each day, the Hatchers and the Tudmans get postcodes. One of which says that Buzy Senior had a heart-attack, but survived and will make a full recovery.
Then, when they return, the Hatchers, the Tudmans, and the Fargos all go to Florida and to all the fancy rainforest-y places with the Howies. And Mini Farley can speak too. And Howie and Udora are "TV vegetables", but have their outdoorsy activities keeping them fit. A LONG holiday too, into the next year and all.
On the trip, Tutsi turns five, or six, or four or something. And Peter celebrates his birthday too. He gets a Caramel Cake from the Howies, and from his parents he gets books, a new laptop, and a fancy bike. He turns 13. And from the Tudmans he gets the new dog - spoken about earlier... the one he calls Rufus George.
Oh, and Judy Blume, if possible, please don't make anyone die. I don't think I would be able to cope with such news. Not Mureul, not Buzy, not Olivia, nobody please.
Thank you,
P.S, you don't have to write another book, I just think it would be nice. Oh, and please don't make it your last, if you write one.
Thank you.
Goodbye, Judy Blume.

,Dear Judy Blume.....Thanks for this book. I was born and raised in Elizabeth,attended Battin, shopped at Levy's and Goerke's. sledded on Wyoming Ave, skated at Dreamland and Twin Cities. I graduated Battin 1946 . Phylliis Kirkgaard and I were in dramatics ( she starred, I didn't) I remember the three plane crashes and the fear everyone experienced when a plane flew over Elizabeth afterward. It was something one does not forget. I am appoaching 87 and this book was perfect , reviving all the treasured memories of my home town.......Thank you again. Joy(ce) Paulmenn Sweeny

Dear Judy Blume,
Hello! I cant believe I am writing to you. I love your books and so does my mom, I am a triplet so I am trying to get them to read your books to. My favorite book of yours is "are you there go it's me, Margret?". Right now I have read: sally freedman starring herself, are you there god its me Margret, Its not the end of the world, Iggies house, Blubber. Every time I would read a book I would decide that one was my favorite but it would change at the next book I read. I looked on your website and I recently had been inspired to start writing my own stories and maybe even take notes in a notebook. Thank you for bringing reality for some of the middle school books you have written, I wouldn't want to be reading abut fairies right now. Maybe I will email you again to tell you my progress on my stories. Sincerely Maeren (age:11)
