Hi I'm Mackenzie Johnson and I'm from DC Everest Middle School. We are doing a author research paper and I choose you as mine. I was wondering were did you get your inspiration to start writing. I was also wondering what is your advice to other authors or people just starting writing. Please get back to me as soon as possible.
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I go to school at Buckley Country Day School in New York and my English class is going to grow beans with our favorite author's word on it. Once we get that information, we will send the word to a bean company. The bean company will then engrave the word in the bean. We will care for our beans and then they will grow. When the flowers sprout, the word will appear on the flower! Then, we will send our favorite authors the picture of the flower, to honor them.
Since you are my favorite author, I would be honored if you could tell me your favorite word and why it is your favorite. Also, if you have a favorite seed or flower, it would be greatly appreciated if you send the name or the seed to us. We would plant the seed or flower in your name. This project is very important to me, so if you would be so kind as to answer me back at email@example.com. My friend Julia will also be contacting you from your email. Thank you for your time and for your stories! Please write back!
P.S. Here is the link to the magic bean company who will make your seed: http://livelovebean.com.au/magic-bean-shop/believe-achieve-magic-bean/
I just wanted to write to you to tell you how much your new book, In the Unlikely Event has perfectly portrayed the events that happened in the 1950s. My grandfather, Thomas Pagoulatos was one of your HS teachers in Elizabeth, NJ and he still speaks fondly of you. The AA Flight 6780 crash on January 22, 1952 that flew into the house at the intersection of Williamson and South Streets was the house of my great grandparents and my grandfather Tom Pagoulatos' parents.
My grandfather has read the book and really enjoyed it, he is doing quite well, still residing in New Jersey.
Hi , I was wondering if you ever thought of doing a book about a child who's Mother and Father who are separated and the heart-ship and toll that the child go's though spending one week with the Mom the next week with his dad them not getting along. My nephew Mark is one of them kids and I have been looking for a book for him he has been reading your books as I did at his age. I think it would help him and many others
Hi Judy! I've been reading the Fudge books since i was 10 and just discovered Summer Sisters and fell in love instantly. I'm kinda bummed there isn't a sequel or more to the story. Maybe involving Caitlin's disappearance explained or Vix's kid(s) growing up? I don't know anything really, I just really enjoyed the book and I'm going to read Smart Women next! Thank you for being such an awesome writer!
how do you think of ideas?

I was just talking to a friend (a non-reader) about books written for children after they finished with "children's books." We talked about how children's books as well as those for the middle years and YA have expanded so much in the past decade or so.
She said she lost interest in reading because there weren't any books that were relevant to her. I asked if she had read any of your books and she didn't think she had (damn!).
As we talked, I realized how at least two of your books have stayed with me -- "Are you there God? It's me Margaret" and even more so "Tiger Eyes." The kind of books that my mind has flitted to randomly and frequently over the years since I (apparently) grew up.
I wanted to thank you, for writing stories about subjects that were relevant to me and characters that I could empathize with.
It's not a small thing, to write stories, characters or scenes that stay with people for decades.
Hi I just want to say I love your book Tiger eyes and the movie was amazing. Have you ever thought about making a sequel?
Dear Judy Blume,
Hi, my name is Ruby. I've read 8 of your 28 wonderful books. Right mow I am reading BFF: Just as long as were together, Here's to you Rachel Robinson. I love your books because I can imagine and relate to them. My favourite book is: Starring Sally J. Freedman as her self because I love the story line and it was a fun book to read. I was wondering if you have time, can you send me I signed picture of your self? I have a reading nook in my bedroom and I would love to put the signed picture up there. I just wanted to thank you for writing these great books and I look forward to read the rest of them.
Hope to hear from you soon,
I read your books growing up. They were an escape and a promise of a bigger world for a girl who didn't fit in. I recently started re - reading your books and was struck by how differently I see them. I'm a grown up now, and a psychologist in private practice. I work primarily with kids who are not neurotypical as well as a fair number of anxious little girls. I now read these through the lens of someone who often hears many variations of the themes you speak to in your books: grief, loss, loneliness, trauma, anxiety, self-doubt AND resilience, competence, bravery, and identity. Thank you so much. The stories you tell are reminders to kids that they are not alone in what they experience.
My name is Alexys and I'm 9 yrs old.I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your book Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing I read it twice I never read books twice.I really loved it.I hope maybe one day you can write a book about me! Any ways I just wanted to say thank you and I love your book.love Alexys
I have just read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and it was really good. My favorite chapter was My Brother the Bird. It reminds me of a long time ago when my brothers were in charge of me. You really inspire me to write. I wish you could come to Vancouver uWashington and speak. I hope I can meet you someday. Also when is your next book going to be made about Fudge? Why did you choose to do it about a fourth grader an

Dear Mrs. Blume,
I am really fascinated by your work on Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing. I think it is very well detailed. My favorite part is when Peter gets Oreos for getting on the toddle bikes and then Fudge wants to ride the bikes too. I love the way you write books. You are truly an amazing author.
Dear Judy Blume, I love your Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I think my favroite part is when Fudge spread his food all around the diner. Also when he ate the whole turtle! My question for you is did you your son really act like Fudge and why?
Dear Mrs. Blume, My name is Adrianne, and liked your book, Tales so a Fourth Grade Nothing. My favorite part in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is the last chapter, poor Dribble! That is my favorite part in the book, because I like it when Mother is trying to tell Peter that Dribble is not in Fudge's tummy, but it is. Then Mother asks where Dribble is and Fudge tells her that it is actually in his tummy. It makes me snicker. -Adrianne
Dear Mrs. Blume,
First of all I LOVE your books. I liked your book called Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (book one). My favorite part is when Fudge eats Peter's pet turtle Dribble. At first I thought it was a joke, but...I guess not! Also, I was wondering if you're writing another book? It was fun writing to you!!
Dear Judy Blume,
I did not know you wrote and thought about stories your whole life. That's crazy! I hope I can become like you. Congratulations on selling over 85 million books, I don't know any other person who has sold that many books! I'm currently reading one of your books which is Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I am almost finished and it's funny and entertaining for everyone. I enjoy your books so much that I want to read them again.
Dear Mrs. Judy Blume,
I loved "Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing" my favorites part is when they are at Hamburger Heaven and Fudge dumps his WHOLE bowl of peas and mashed potatoes on his head!!! That part made me laugh SO hard I cried!!! You are very talented. I love your books. Please come to Vancouver WA some day!!!
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I like a lot of your stories, especially Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing. I like how you made Fudge (the little toddler) a villain. Your books are so hilarious that sometimes I just had to stop and laugh for a moment. Your books are awesome
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I really enjoyed your book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing! We read it in our fourth grade class! (Fudge was hilarious!) I really liked the part where Fudge smeared mashed potatoes on the wall! I was also wondering when you will make another book? My favorite thing Fudge said was "Look Pee-tah Fudgie a birdie, Fudgie can fly!" And then he broke his two front teeth! Ouch!
Madison (a huge fan)
Hi Judy Blume, I got to meet you in 1983 at a book reading on a field trip when I was 8 years old in Jacksonville, Florida.they had you sat on a stoolon this stage and you read to all of us in the audience "Freckle Juice". Well, now I'm 40 and my eight year old niece comes home from school in Arkansas today and says that she went to the library today and checked out a new book, she showed me the book " Freckle Juice" and I literally just cried " I know this book and have read it many times!!!" Thanks so much for your love in writing children's books and the ability for my niece to read them as well in her time.
Hi I am your bigist fan I want to know when is your birthday is and do you have any children and how many books?
I love your books you inspire me to write. I have wrote books since I was 5 and loved every minute of it! I would love for you to come to Australia and speak. I've never like any modern books but I love old books! I was wondering if you wirte any more books one of the characters could be named Chloe only if you want! Hopefully I will see you in Australia!!!
Love Chloe ( your biggest fan )
I love all of your books but I have re-read "Wifey" every year for the past 20 years. It's amazing, but I find a new gem in it every single time. Thank you for understanding me as a young married women and an older albeit wiser woman. You rock.
Thanks for helping "raise" this little bookworm who's childhood was often lonely and always, always uncertain. Through your books, I learned about "life" & becoming a woman. Your stories took me out of my own realities(older parents who definitely didn't understand...& my daddy's battle with leukemia, dx'd when I was 9 (?).)
Thank you, Sweet Judy. I wish you could understand how reading your books and escaping in the stories, "saved" me.
I good friend bought me the book Wifey as a birthday gift all the way back in 1987. Over the years I read it so many times the pages began to fall out and it eventually fell apart. I've given the book to several friends over the years. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed it. Each time I read it something different spoke to me, as I was in a different time of my life. Thank you.
I am currently working on an inquiry project for my Language Arts class. We were asked to research a topic that was important or of great interest to us. We are going to teach the rest of the class about the topic. I am writing to you to see if you may be able to answer a few of my questions regarding this topic. I would be most grateful if you were able to answer them when you get a free moment. Thank you in advance for helping me with my inquiry project! I look forward to hearing from you!
What is a Book Character and how can they affect the reader, What do you think it means to Pursue a dream,and what do you think a book needs in order to affect the reader? Thanks once again.
i want to meety you!
Nov.8,2015 Hi Judy, My name is Michalagh, I have been enjoying your books with relish since I was 10 yrs. old. You have inspired me to be writer and to not worry about what I write. I too worry about censorship. Wish you knew what your books have meant to me. When I was younger I read, Dear God it's me Margaret so many times it fell apart and mom would have to tape it back together. There is so many questions I want to ask you about writing. I hope I can meet you someday.
Hi Judy Blume. My name is Lori and I read all your books when I was a little girl. Now our daughter, Savana,9 years old, is reading all your books too. She just finished reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing in 2 days. She absolutely loved it! Savana's favorite subject is reading and reads constantly and thinks constantly. We will now start another of your books for we purchased many of them for her. We would love to meet you if you ever have book signings please let us know. Thank you for your time and reading this. Sincerely, Lori and Savana
What is your next book going to be made

I am leading our book club discussion Thursday night on the unlikely event. What 3 questions should I ask from your perspective. I personally liked Miri and mikes last meeting the best. It tied it up nicely
Dear Mrs. Blume,
We are reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing in our fourth grade class.What I liked about your book was fudge because he is funny and weird.Where did you get such good ideas for such a wonderful book?My favorite chapter was Just another Rainy Day.Why did you write about a fourth grader instead of a third grader?My favorite parts were when Peter did something so Fudge would do what he was suposed to do.What I also liked when Fudge put green stamps all over Mr. and Mrs. Yancy's suitcase.Those are my favorite parts because they are funny and cute.The chapter that was sad was Dribble.That chapter was sad because Fudge ate Dribble and Dribble didn't survive.I would like to see you write a book about Peter in six grade.You are a talented writer and I hope to read more of your books! your reader becca
In our fourth grade class we read your book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.I liked chapter 10 because the part when Fudge eats Dribble,it was funny and sad.But at the end Peter gets a dog and he was happy.My favorite person is Fudge because he is funny. My second favorite is when Mr. and Mrs. Yarby because of Fudge the funny things are he comes down with an gorilla mask ,when he brings down Peter's old dicturnary and when he brings down Dribble.A scary part is when Fudge falls of the jungle gym.
