Hey Judy do you remember me i did a assignment on you? I am now in 5th grade and the best writer in my class I hope you get back to me...Oh and i have some news...i have a baby sister she is now 5 months old! i hope tpo read her some of your books!
My name is Tracy Potter and although my books have been published online only, I enjoy writing and I think part of it was the fact that I had read your books growing up and "Are you there God, It's Me Margaret" was my favorite.
Thank you so much for having such a great imagination and all the hard work you put into your books.
OMG I love ur books they r so interesting that I can't stop reading!!! I especially love the books about Peter and Fudge!!!
I thought the funniest part was when Fudge managed to kick Mr. Burman in the face.
Greetings from a fan. I am so happy that you have written another book for adults. I am presently reading “In the Unlikely Event”. I cannot put it down. It was 1:30 AM and I was still reading…
When I was a teenager, I was in a helicopter rash with my father and the story brings it all back to me. It is not something I like to remember but nevertheless I am riveted to your book.
I wanted to point out an error on page 165 in the paragraph called Shiva. You mentioned that Kathy’s family would be sitting shiva for 8 days. The word shiva in Hebrew means 7 and the mourning period is 7 days, not 8 days.
Hopefully I can get some sleep tonight.
I was there in Elizabeth when the plane crash happened. Saw the plane ...hard to believe it was real. It was...I saw it.
I love your books, and I especially like the Fudge books. I think you are an amazing author. If you happen to be in Lexington, KY please contact me so we can meet up.
PS I have read all of your children's books!

the theather .Ok that's all I just want to say

I love your books. I liked Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing because it was really funny. My favorite part was when Fudge said "Eat it or wear it." Then he dumped peas on his head. Another funny part was when Fudge ate Dribble. My class laughed at that part when are teacher read it to us.
I've been a fan since I was around 7 or 8. I'm now 41.
I recently introduced my 13 year old son to Then Again Maybe I Won't and Are You There God, It's Me Margaret.
Thank for taking on the topics most authors wouldn't bother with.
My mom would have greatly learned from Deenie a little earlier.
She was diagnosed with scoliosis when she was in her late teens in the early '70s....too late in her age to get the proper help.
I have written here before about re-reading Just As Long As Were Together. You wrote me back and I so appreciate that.
As a child and adult, I have so enjoyed your books.
Thanks so much for all you have done for writing on topics that have not been popular, but they were important.
In fact, one of my favorite books is Letters To Judy. You made me feel like some ways I felt were not so uncommon.
Thank you for everything you have done for your fans. You have helped more people then you will ever imagine.
I like your books.I can't wait to read more of your books.

Hi,my name is Skyler and I love your books! My favorite book of yours is tales of a fourth grade nothing.And I love Fudge from that story!Please keep on writing books! From,Skyler
I really loved the book "Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing." I loved the story about Peter and Fudge was funny. I loved the things that Peter had to do that Fudge messed up. Thank you for writing wonderful books for kids.
I Love your books I fell in love with reading after reading Are you there God? It's me Margret in the 3rd grade(i read above my grade since 1st) I also learned so much about growing up thanks to your books. My mom never sat me down and talked about things that girls will go through. As a teen I read Forever and as a high schooler I fell in live with Vix and Catlin. I borrowed Summer Sisters so many times from my English teacher Sophmore year that he told me to Keep it when I returned it at the end of the year. I have that copy still and have read it maybe 20 more times in the last 10 years. Your books are my go tos when I get in a what to read next slump. Thank you and I am waiting for our post library to get your newest in so I cam check it out. I go in weekly to see if it is in yet.
Hey, Judy. A few months ago you shared with me - via e-mail - that you were coming to Edinburgh, and as a result me and my sister came and saw you - it was wonderful! We even met you, which was something we're still very thankful for, and I'm sure everyone else who met you is too. Just wanted to leave a message to say how lovely it was to see you. My little 7 year-old sister says to everyone "she was even nicer when she signed my Fudge book!" - this made me laugh!
Have a lovely day and best wishes, Rosie
Hi judy!I'm such a big fan of your books.I especially love you books with fudge and peter in them.They're so funny!My 2nd grade teacher Mrs.McLaughlin read all the books to us, but she didn't get to finish the book!Thankfully I got the book and finished myself.Anyway,I was thinking you should continue the fudge series and right a book like the other fudge books,but from fudge's point of view.Like how did fudge feel when Peter fainted on the floor when he said he wanted to marry Sheila Tubman?And how did he feel when he got his tooth knocked out or when mom and grandma put out the mattress and fudge got folded up in it.It would definatly be a book I would want to read!!
Dear Judy Blume,
Are you going to make another book? If you are send me a copy at XXX
Sincerely, your fan Eduardo
P.S. I want the book with your autograph. Thanks!
Ms. Collins Class
Dear Ms. Blume,
We just read "The Pain and the Great One". We really enjoyed your story because it was funny. We read it to encourage us to tell good stories like you do. Thanks for writing such an awesome book!
Ms. Collins' Class
Dear Ms. Blume,
Thank you. My sister, who is by no means an avid reader, has been reading "Summer Sisters" every summer for as long as I can remember. This year I decided to experience for myself the novel which has captured her imagination for over a decade. What a beautiful and heartwarming story. I must say, Abby was my favourite character, she reminded me of my mother and in some ways reading your book felt like going home again. I plan on visiting Caitlin and Vix at the Vineyard again next summer. Brilliant!
All my best,
It is such a pleasure to have my youngest child begin reading all about Fudge! These stories are absolutely timeless and I thank you for such wonderful story telling that has reached so many generations.
I grew up reading several of your books which helped me develop a love of reading. My 10 yr old son has no interest in reading. We have bought tons of books and tried everything. I begged him to read Tales of the 4th grade nothing. This is the first book that he will not put down. He wants to read the series now. He finally enjoys reading!
Hi Mrs.Blume I really like your books I wish that you could keep writing more books.
Thank you for giving those of us who grew up in Elizabeth such a wonderful bit of nostalgia. I lived on Pennington St and graduated from Lincoln school14,Hamilton and Battin. Although I was only 7 when the crashes happened I remember some of it. Great walk down memory lane
Melody and her dad Todd
During bedtime with Melody this week, she started telling me that her teacher is reading a book to them, and that one of the characters was named Fudge. To which I responded asking, "was it Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing?" Her eyes LIT UP! She was shocked that I knew the book. I explained that I had read the same book 30+ years ago. She then recounted to me the first couple of chapters, and has been updating me as they go along each day. I am fondly remembering all the great times spent with Peter and Fudge and all the rest. What a special moment. Thank you Judy.

I want to know who this girl is on the book cover of Just As Long As Long As were together. A lot of people ask me if its me we look identical
Dear Judy, Thank-you so much for writing "In the Unlikely Event." I read most of it in one sitting. I am a retired English teacher; however, if I was still teaching I would recommend "Unlikely" to my students. FYI, I will be recommending "Unlikely" at the Barnes and Noble web site. Maybe someday I will have the honor of meeting you.
Meryl Gold Kirschner
As a teacher, I used Judy Blume books to capture a love of reading in my elementary students.
But the purpose of this email is to thank you for including the wonderful stories about Elizabeth, my hometown, in your book, "in the Unlikely Event." The book brought back a chance to go home again. My uncle was President of the Elizabeth Board of Education, my grandfather and his two sons owned a lumber yard, Peter Gold & Co. Down the port on First Street right down the block from The Singer plant, we lived in the Westminister section, my grandparents on Magee, I went to Vail-Deane, dated boys from Pingry, shopped on Broad Street, called the owners of Levy Brothers aunt and uncle. I even had my hair done at Connie's, which I had long forgotten. All these things and more were mentioned in your book. My dad actually ran to Janet Orphanage the night the plane crashed there. I hadn't thought about my first 13 years there until I read this book. Thank you for letting me go home again.
Just finished In the unlikely Event Great reading I went to Battin High Was not born until 1955. Nobody talked about the crashes. When I was junior in Battin you visited my English teacher Ms. Newman ( I think was her name) I always remember that. I have been teaching in Miami for 35 years. Your books are great for kids. But now I enjoyed the adult book very much. Thanks for all you write. Best Wishes.
In my 27 years of life, I have never picked up a book and not set it down until I was finished until I read, Are You There God, Its Me Margret. It was such a great book, and reminded me of myself when I was growing up. I cannot wait to jump right into another one of your books.
Secondly, I really enjoyed reading your article on censorship, I believe it is wrong, and it breaks my heart to think people will stop writing books for the fear of being challenged. So many great books will never be able to be read.
Judy, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for such an amazing read - "In the Unlikely Event" was out of this world, favorite book so far! Thank you again for being the #1 writer!
Dear Ms. Blume,
I began reading your books when I was about 10 yrs old. I loved your books and read everything you wrote as your books became available. When I went to high school, we had to write a paper on our favorite author. No surprise, I wrote about you. I even reached out to you and you sent a personal letter to me. You apologized that my priority mail was not delivered to you in time to respond when you actually did. I was so excited that you took the time to write to me. Your books had and still have such an impact on me. Now, as a mother, I feel so privileged in sharing your books with my daughter. Thank you so very much for impacting so many lives!
will you right about love
How do you come up with ideas to write books??
P.S this is for class please send back a email
PP.S your my favorite author and you are awesome
How do you get ideas to write about? My class is writing about how great authors get ideas for their stories and I choose you because I love your book Shelia the Great and Are You There God? It's me Margret. Please write back as soon as you can. Thank you for being such a hero.
hello judy i have read almost all of your books fudge-a-mania,double fudge and now i am reading super fudge your my fav auther
Hey Judy, For the start of fourth grade my class and i read tales of a fourth grade nothing and we loved it. If your still writing books I would love it if you wrote the book in fudge's point of view. I wonder how Fudge felt when he tried to fly, when he cut off his hair and when he swallowed Dribble. In Peter's perspective the book was funny, But imagine the story in Fudge's head. So if your still writing stories could you please write it in Fudge's point of view?
MS.JUDY I STARTED READING YOUR BOOKS WHILE IN SCHOOL I ENJOYED EVERYONE OF THEM PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT,S COMING
Hello! Can you please write a book based on Fudge's perspective? I just read A Fourth Grade Nothing. My class and I will be sending lots of messages. Thank You Judy!

Dear Judy Blume,
I also love to read I have only read two of your books. They both were amazing!!! I can't wait to read your other books. I hope you'll think about my idea to make a sequel to "Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself". I've been making up stories about Sally since I first read the book. Maybe I'll write you a letter.
Maggie Moo Moo
Dear Judy Blume,
I just finished reading "Staring Sally J. Freedman as herself" for the 2nd time. It's my favirote book EVER. If it was possibal you should write a sequel.
Dear Mrs. Blume,
First of all, I LOVE your books. My 4th grade class just finished reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (Which I had read twice before.) I am a older sibling to a 6 year old brother, and I could totally relate to Peter. For example, when Fudge ate Dribble, Peter's turtle, I wanted to flatten Fudge, I was so mad! I love your writing, I love your books, and I love your style. Thank you for trying so hard to make miracles on a single piece of paper. You definitely succeeded!
Dear Judy Blume,
My class just finished reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. It was so funny. My favorite part was when Fudge wanted to touch the bears from the movie theater. My favorite character is Fudge because he got to wear his food.
Dear Judy Blume,
We've been reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. My favorite parts were when Fudge ate a turtle, & 2 rose petals. But that's not all. I liked it when he smears mashed potatoes on the wall.
Dear Judy Blume,
My class just finished reading Tales of a Fourth
Grade Nothing. It was so good! I think the best part is when Fudge ate Peter's turtle. Will you make another book, please?
Dear Judy Blume,
I enjoyed Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. It was hilarious! It was funny when Fudge was babbling. Do bu bee do zoo. I liked Peter.
PS I wold like to read more books from you.
Dear Judy Blume,
MY class just finished reading Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing. It was so funny! My favorite character was Fudge because dried to fly like a bird. That was so funny that my class laughed so so hard. My also favorite part was when Fudge got Peters turtle Dribble when Mr. Yarby and Mrs.Yarby. That was funny when Mrs. Yarby screamed and said get that thing away from me. Also was when Fudge gulped Dribble down his throat. I love that book.
