hello judy,

my name is yiftach and i am 7 years old. i wrote in hebrew what i wanted to tell you and my mother translated it. i just finished reading your books about 'pain and great'. it was the most funny, interesting, great books i have ever read! the situation in jerusalem isn't easy these days and i spend a lot of time at home without doing much. your books made me laugh a lot, especially when i read about jake - 'the pain'- and his only-white food. when i finished reading the three books i asked my mom to take me to the library, so i could borrow another book of my favourite sister and brother, but my mom said there are only three books.that made me very sad. i want to thank you for the wonderful time i had reading your books and to request one thing: please, write another book of 'the pain and great'! i will be the first one to read it! thank you for writing for us,kids, about our life, home, family and feelings. i would also want to know, how do you remember so well what children think and feel. thank you and שלום shalom. yiftach

Ms. Blume: I wanted to take the time to thank you for introducing me to the art of the written word. As a youngster, your children's books were the first novels I read, and I have been an avid reader since then. Because of your books, I developed a love for reading and writing, which has helped shape my career as an attorney. Reading your books opened me up to a magical and creative world that honestly changed my life. Again, thank you for sharing your gift with others. God bless you!

Dear Judy,
My name is Diva, I'm from Jakarta, Indonesia - wondering if you ever heard about my country. I know you already heard a lot of praise for your superb works but I just wanted to tell you ever since I read 'Are You There, God, it's me Margaret' til'In the Unlikely Event' that you are very inspiring. I love how the words flew to my mind when i read your books, made me not think about the time that passed and how I really wanted to tell stories like you, captivating the readers. Excuse my bad English, but I just really wanted to tell you that. I hope you have a very great life. With Love, Diva

Hello Judy Blume!!!
I've been a fan of yours, well since forever it seems like, but really since I read my first Judy Blume book when I was 8 years old. Our teacher read us The One in The Middle is the Green Kangaroo out loud in class and then showed us where we could find more of your books in the library. I checked out Freckle Juice first and even tried to follow the recipe. I believe the summer between 3rd and 4th grade is when I really buckled down and read most of your books. My family moved overseas and the base library had all your books. We only had one English language tv channel and none of our toys had arrived yet, so all I could do was read every single day as it was the rainy season and we couldn't play outside in the rain, not too mention that we didn't have any friends yet as everyone was stuck inside. Anyway, yesterday I found myself at Urgent Care and the nurse practitioner was asking me questions about my mom's health history in the hopes that it may shed some light on my current situation. Unfortunately I didn't have any answers for him because my mom never ever talked about those things with me. I tried to explain to him so I said "No, she was a traditional Mexican mom and didn't even discuss puberty with me let alone things that happen later in life to us women. Everything I know, I learned from Judy Blume and now Google." He nodded sympathetically and said, " Well, we all need a best friend, don't we?" I just smiled at him. Clearly he never read the Fudge books or perhaps as a boy he didn't know your name by heart. It's true though, like many girls I learned most of what I needed to know from your books. I've read every single one and when I saw your most recent book at Barnes and Noble over the summer I honestly squealed with delight, I have witnesses!! I have all your children's books and young adult books in my classroom library too. You're such an amazing author, thank you for sharing your stories with all of us.

I am over whelmed with happiness! I have found you! Ever since I was about 7 years old I have been reading your books! Your books got me through a lot of hard times and punishments!(laugh) When I was a child I read till my eyes hurt,but it was your books Ms.Blume that gave me the desire to read! I went through a lot of abuse and reading gave me an escape . Put together so beautifully,so perfect! reading one of your books brings words to life (the imagination). Reading is like living it! I am now twenty years old and am in the process of writing my first book!! I also want to be an author for a variety of ages, I grew up reading your books and it inspired me and gave me life! Following in your footsteps I hope one day to meet you with book in hand! I thank you for your contribution to the literary world your mind is INCREDIBLE! I hope to meet you very soon Ms.Blume!

Hometown: Spring Grove, PA - Posted January 19, 2016 8:14 pm


Hello Judy! I am a few decades late in finally writing to you but I just had to let you know that I read all of your books as a pre-teen and teenager and your writing and stories mean as much to me today as they did back then. As a young girl, it was quite empowering to read one of your books and realize someone actually "gets" you. Please know the lasting power of your writing and thank you, thank you, thank you for your honesty, humor and sensitivity! You are unmatched in the literary world! All the best to you and yours!

Hometown: Melbourne, Australia - Posted January 18, 2016 1:45 am


Dear Judy,
I hope you are well.
I just finished rereading Summer Sisters [for the fourth time in as many years]. Love this story.
There is something about Caitlin and Sharkey that just occurred to me. Their individual reactions to anything of a sexual nature makes me suspect that they were sexually abused as children. Nothing to this affect is mentioned in the story, but it is there in their behaviour. I can't help wondering, backstory: did something happen to them, perhaps by one of Phoebe's many boyfriends?

Happy new year Judy!

Hometown: Maplewood, New Jersey - Posted January 16, 2016 7:53 pm


"Are You There God? it's Me Margret" was one of my favorite books growing up. As an elementary teacher, I've seen loads of kids love books like Fudge too. I have never read any of the adult selections until now. I just finished In the Unlikely Event and loved it! I not only enjoyed the read, I grew up in Maplewood and some of my childhood haunts were mentioned like Papermill Playhouse and Grunings on the Hill (the best vice cream and an even better view). Thank you for a great read and a reminder of my youth.

Hometown: Idaho, USA - Posted January 14, 2016 7:24 pm


Dear Judy Blume,
I have been in love with your books as long as I can remember. The books I love and read over and over again is "Are you There God, It's Me Margret", and "BFF" Right now I'm actually reading "Bff" for the first time. Your characters are bright and funny, and I would read this book when I'm an adult. Thank you for writing these AMAZING books. I hope you write more. Please write back soon.

Ms. Blume,
I can't believe I'm actually (kind of) talking to you. You have no idea how grateful my family and I are for you existence (I know you probably hear this every day, but I'm still going to say this because you're really awesome). I love laughing at Fudge and my parents wish Peter's sensibility could rub off on me (it obviously doesn't ), but if my serious parents laugh at Fudge's antics, that's saying something (the fact that they read a children's book is also saying something, but I'm not going to go there). It's really cool how you know how kids think, and write books that they will understand. I am seriously addicted to your books, and would give anything to meet you in person. (*NOTE* You probably hear everything mentioned above, like, every day, but the fact that it comes from moi makes it more special. )
I LOVE YOU (in case I haven't implied it before)!!!!

Smiles and Love,

I have always loved your books! I read them to my children when they were little, and they have always inspired us. So much, in fact, that I have started writing books now for my own grandbabies! But, I really don't know what to do with them once I've got them done, lol. I printed them on Shutterfly to give to my own family, but would like to share them with others, so that they might be enjoyed by more people, as your books are! Any suggestions for me?

God bless you and all your future endeavors! You are a blessing to all of us already!

Dear Mrs. Blume,

I really, really hope that you get the chance to read this message. I wanted to let you know how much I adore your new book, In the Unlikely Event. I have always been a huge fan of yours, and reading your books throughout my childhood is what sparked my love for literature. I was so excited to see that you published a new book for young adults, and while I'm on my Christmas break from college I finally had the chance to read it. For two straight days I could not put it down! I learned so much from this book, and it made me even more obsessed with the 1950's-my favorite decade. I am currently heartbroken that I finished the book, because I did not want it to end. You are incredibly talented and I thank you profusely for your work. Happy New Year!


Hometown: Los Alamos, NM - Posted January 6, 2016 10:41 am


Hi Judy,
I just finished _In_the_Unlikely_Event_! I couldn't put it down, and now I can finally get to my chores.

I read most of your teen books growing up. You were definitely a favorite author among my friends and me.

I was going to ask you about Randy, but then I read about her being a commercial pilot. She may not remember me; we were in the same class in school when you lived here. In fact, I worked with the woman who bought your house. Small world! Please give Randy my best.

I'm looking forward to your next book!

Hi Ms. Blume,
I am so excited to get to write to you, because I love your Fudge books sooooooo much!!!!! I read them just about everyday. I know them by heart.
I am really hoping you decide to write another story about Fudge and his family and that you talk about them getting older. I want to learn who they will become as grown ups.
Please let me know if I can give you some suggestions or help. I would also love to meet you someday. Do you ever come to Southern California?
Thank you and Happy New Year!

Dear Judy Blume,
I'm your biggest fan. I know A LOT of people say that, but who else would read "Are You There God, it's Me, Margaret at 7 years old and use it for a school book report? Hehe. I love your books SO SO SO much,and I've read them around 5 times.(Yes, really.) I've read everything except the adult books, like Wifey. My favorite book by you would have to be "Are You There God, it's Me, Margaret", "Deenie", "Blubber" or "Here's to you, Rachel Robinson." It's funny, nobody in my grade has heard about you. Crazy, I know. You are my favorite author by FAR and I feel like your books kind of grow with me. I bet when I'm 12 I'll think "Ohhhh, now I get Judy's books!" I can't explain what I feel when I read your books. Your wonderful books have inspired me to write my own short stories.

Keep On Writing, and I'll keep on Reading!!

Love, Maya (Piggie Lover)

Over the summer, my teacher (who now works for pre-school, and I now got a new teacher) assigned us 3 book reports. For the second one I chose Tales Of a Fourth Grade Nothing. It was hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They could've chose a boring book like The Hobbit (no offense J.R.R Tolken),or To Kill a Mocking Bird (that's actually a good idea,but a boring book whoever wrote the book),but they chose THIS?!?!?!?!?!

I have just heard about judy's book about the plane crashes over ELIZABETH, NJ. I thought she might be interested in knowing that we (my mother and 4 children)were scheduled to be on the 3rd flight but we're late and then transferred to section B of that flight. We have lots of memories of this experience if Judy is interested

Hometown: Pawling - Posted December 17, 2015 8:31 am


Dear Judy Blume,

Hi! My name is Ellie. I am in fifth grade at Mizzentop Day School. I have been in this school for about 9 years…..going on 10! I am a big fan of your books. I have read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Superfudge, and Double Fudge, but my favorite book is Blubber.

Linda, the person who is Blubber, is really nice. People were making fun of her because she is chubby, which I think is unfair. I also like Jill who was trying to be part of the cool people club. I like her because she was not trying to be a bully to Linda. I do not like Wendy because she was the worst of the bullies. She was cruel to Linda. Wendy was even cruel enough to pull down her pants in front of the whole class. My favorite part of the book is when Jill decided that she was going to be Linda’s friend!

In your books, I don’t think that I would change anything. Your books just bring me to delight when I am reading them. I think that the best part about your books is that you always have a lesson in them, followed by a happy message or something that's a little more serious. I think the message you gave in Blubber is the best: you can not always do what you want. Sometimes you have to do what is right. I think Blubber is my favorite book, and I think that it will stay that way!

I just have three questions I would like to ask. Does writing give you a lot of stress? My second question is are you lonely in the room when you write by yourself? My third question is how do you get inspired for your books?

I just want to thank you for all you've done, for bringing kids joy by reading your books! Because of you, I know I have not been bullied because I know the definition of bullying. I also know it's not right to bully someone else.

If you could, could you write back? I would love hearing from such a famous author.

Your biggest fan,

Posted December 16, 2015 2:43 pm


I really love your books! They always make me smile!
