Hi Judy, I'm 35 now and still have such fond memories of reading your amazing books as a child (and again as a bigger child!) I'm hoping to find a whole box set online so I can read them all again and keep them forever. Thank you for helping so many young people with your writing. Best wishes.
Dear Judy Blume,
Hello, How are you? I hope you are very well. I am writing to tell you that I really loved your Fudge series. It is my favorite series. I think the character of Fudge is so funny and so great. He truly is one of a kind. I always enjoy reading and re-reading the books. It is like re-visiting old friends. The characters are so realistic and you can really relate to them and you feel a connection to them. The books were also very funny I always laughed out loud reading them. I was wondering if you would please write another book in the Fudge series. I would love to see how the Hatcher family is doing. Thank you so much. Have a nice day.
Hello judy blume ,I am in love with your many books and I have read loved this one book in particular: blubber. I had my own personal experience with bullying like jill.I am so glad that you have created these books . to bad my school bans most of them. Thank you so much judy blume.
My boyfriend just gave me your newest book "In the Unlikely Event" for my birthday on October 4th. He was impressed that I read it in one day, but what can I say? I'm one of your biggest fans! I hope you do continue writing books-this one was just as enjoyable as all the others.
Please let me know if you are scheduling an event in Ohio or Pennsylvania-it would be so awesome to meet you someday!
BTW, my boyfriend is also an author, too! He's currently writing a book about the history of Jewish people in the Youngstown area.
Dear judy blume your books are great please do another fudge book when tootsie is older keep up the good work i am writing a book called kit kat god loves you kaitlyn
I have been a huge fan of yours since childhood. I've been re-reading some of my favorites, and they are still as amazing as I remember, even if Margaret no longer has to deal with the sanitary belt. LOL! I just bought my girls (ages 7 and 12) a boxed set so I could share it with them. I just finished your latest adult novel ITUE, and I just had to write and say how much I loved it! I could not put it down... These wrinkly baggy eyes are your handiwork this week! Any way, thanks for your hard work and talent, I hope to meet you at one of your events soon.
With much sincerity,
Hi Judy, I LOVE your books! I use to HATE to read and then your books inspired me!
Love your 2nd biggest fan!
I have read all of your Fudge books and I have enjoyed them, I would like to read another Fudge book. I ask you to write a few more Fudge books.
Hi my name is Cassie and I'm a member of girl scout troop XXX in Sterling, Mass.
We are doing a journey on how the media portrays girls and women. I love your books and have suggested you as an inspirational woman.
Is there any chance you would consider a 5 minute Skype session with our troop? We would love to know what inspired the characters in your book and how you started your career as a writer.
Dear Judy Blume,
I love your books! Could you write to me about how you write your novels? That would be amazing. I'm doing a project at school, and I need to email novel writers to find out how a novel is written, and revised, and published. Thanks!
I grew up reading your books and associate you and your stories with some of my fondest childhood memories. Just as Long as We're Together and the Fudge series are my fav's. Also, your recent novel, In the Unlikely Event was amazing ! I am a teacher now and read your books to my class-- I get much pleasure seeing them enjoy the mischievous and adorable Farley Drexel Hatcher! I recently finished the series with my youngest children and they loved them as much as I did and do Thank you for your creativity and relatability. Much love and respect-- Elisabeth
Hello Judy Blume,
What a great message board! I've been inspired - and impressed - at your fans and I thought I'd write and ask a question of my own.
I read so many of your books as a kid and adolescent (honestly, what young woman hasn't read Are You There God...?) and I also enjoy your adult novels as well. I see that some of the young readers below say that their mothers have introduced them to your books, and it looks like most of those readers are girls. I have a son, so my question is: which of your books do you recommend for boys? He is 13 now, and he likes the Hunger Games and those kinds of fantasy novels. But I would love for him to fall in love with your books as did I...any suggestions would be great - I am sorry if I missed the boat with the Fudge books...I've always let him pick out his own books, and, like most boys these days, he gravitated toward Captain Underpants and Diary of a Whimpy Kid (sorry!).
Thanks for your time.
An eternal fan,
Hi recently I just finished "Just As Long As We're Together" and absolutely loved it! I was wondering if you could connect to someone and make it a movie. It would be amazing to see it come to life.
I would like to do my next speech on you.do you think you could tell me some stuff about you.
From your greatest fan.
P.s.love tour books!

I ran out of books because yours are so good I read them each in just a few days each! As soon as I got home from school u would grab a snack go to my bedroom and read,read,read! I wish I had more of your amazing books, can you please help me by telling me where I can get more books??
Now, enough about m, if you don't mind I will now ask you some questions....

Hello stranger!!! I love your books
Can you make another Fudge book
Hello Mrs. Blume, I grew up reading your books and loved them all! And encourage my 5 kids to read yours now. Reading a book is a very precious thing to do and we must encourage other kids to put down the game remote and pick up a book.
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!
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/
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I chose you as my biography project! I am currently a 7th grader at Southside Middle School in Florence, SC. Can you offer any exciting facts about yourself that I can present to my class and my teacher, Mr. Keane?
Thank you Judy Blume. I love all your books. I grew up with them. A few nights ago I got sad again, because I began reading the last 100 pages on smart women and I wished you would write another book. So I looked on the internet thinking maybe by chance there would be a new book. And there it was!!! Please live for another 200 years and never stop writing. So even my grand children will be enjoying your books too! Thank you so much. Your writing fits perfect to my imagination.i love it.
I just wanted to write to say that you have inspired me to write. Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was the first book I ever read, in 1980 when I myself was in fourth grade. I recently decided to follow my heart's passion and have started to write the first, of hopefully a long series, of books. Like you, I want to tackle real life lessons with my writing. My books, which will be aimed at preteen/early teen readers will be full of humor, adventure and love, but will tackle issues such as bullying, divorce and homelessness. I hope to not only entertain young readers but also open their eyes and expand their minds by teaching them diversity, compassion and tolerance. I credit you for sparking my writing interest again because, while searching for books at the library with my daughter, we came across Tales and I told her it was a must read. If you could give me any advice, even if it's just a single sentence, I would be forever grateful. Thank you and congratulations on your continued success.
Hi. I love your books. You are so awesome.

PS Me and my classmates are reading it! THANKS!
Hi! Im Samantha and im reading Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing and I just started so..... THANKS!!!
After hearing your story on WNYC about the 3 plane crashes in Elizabeth, it reminded me of a friend who disappeared over Christmas break in 1952. I was 17 and a junior at Columbia HS. He flew to Florida and died in Elizabeth. Since then I have flown to Europe and back at least 30 times without an incident. Life is the reverse of roulette, I guess.
Looking forward to reading your book.
