Hi Judy! My son once brought home a bookmark for me from his school library that had a quote from you he knew I'd appreciate. In it you compared writing and reading good books to cooking and eating good food. Now I can't find it anywhere and have even looked on the Internet. Can you help me by remembering that quote?
Hello Judy I read your books Fudge a mania,Otherwise known as Sheila the great,andDouble Fudge Ilke how you did it and it makes mecry
Dear , Judy Blume I have your Fude a mania book it was great but my favorite part is when Jimmy came .And I wonder why you dont put pictures in your Fudges books?
I like Judy's point of view in Fudges book
From 4th grade onwards, I felt I found my friends in Judy's books. I became comfortable talking to my mother about sexual feelings, feelings of conflict about religion, and weight issues. I mean it when I say Judy's work not only changed me to become more able to express my emotions and feel like there was an adult out there who understood me, but she also gave me a love of reading. I remember sitting on the swing in my neighborhood park, getting through Just As Long As We're Together. Even though I am over halfway through with university, I still think back on her books and pick them up just to remember that feeling again. Thank you, Judy, for being a hero for girls, and the women they become, everywhere.
My Dearest Judy,
I have been a fan since the third grade! Thanks to you, I began to enjoy reading! I have had the honor of reading every one of your novels including your adult ones! I am so excited for your new book and I have already pre-ordered it! I am going to fulfill a bucket list item of mine by meeting you in Los Angeles at your book signing!! It will be such an honor to meet you! Thank you for your stories!
My partner and I, both in our 50's, read the entire "Fudge" series to each other at night before we went to bed. It was a wonderful way to end busy days. We howled with laughter and reluctantly turned off the light each night.
Like most kids in the seventies and eighties, I grew up reading your books. Every one. I'm thrilled to learn you have another one coming out in June! Your writing has meant so much to me and you've been an inspiration.
I published my first book last year (Both Sides of Love)and I'm happy to say it's doing well.
This is a tough business but I can't imagine doing anything else. My second book comes out this year.
Thank you for everything you've given to the literary world; your warm, funny, touching stories will always hold a place in my heart.
SUPERFUDE IS SO FUNNY
I like your books
Hi I am here to tell you that I don read the books because I don have them but my teacher does
I love your books and I am going to read them all. What books are you going to do next? I love Fudge he makes me laugh. Thank You
Dear Judy. I like your books about The Pain and The Great One. They are fun fantastic and great!
I like the word Fiend in Friend or Fiend with The pain & The Great One a lot. I have two of your books on my Kindle. I gist got my second one of them. My dad introduced me to your fantastic books. They are the the best books in the world!
"Blubber" and "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret." were the best Judy Blume books.
Miss Judy ,
I read your book Are You Their it's Me Margaret when I was in the 5th grade it was the best book I ever read .It help me through alot of hard times as a young child .I want to Thank you so very much an I didn't know you were still writing .Everytime the question comes up who is your favorite Author I always say Judy Blume Thank You again for being there to help me.
The only book I've read by you is Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself. I remember liking it. You said it was your most autobiographical book. That's interesting. At the end of World War II, I wasn't alive, and I'm a Presbyterian, and I don't like the beach. So I can't really relate, but I like the book. It's been years since I've read it but it's on my bookshelf at home. I'm going to be graduating from college soon and I'm not sure what I want to do. The other day I was looking at my bookshelf has my childhood books and tween books and young adult books and now has a neat stack of college textbooks next to it. And your book is on there. So I just wanted to let you know.
Also, please update your website, it's 2015, Judy.
I love Freckle Juice.

Fudge books are my favourite.The tales of a younger brother who swallows turtles, wont open his mouth at the dentist, cuts his hair into a bowl, figured out that he couldn't fly and knocks his teeth out at three years. I also love the sheila book

I love your books because something always goes wrong like swallowing a turtle! our teacher read us one and we all went to get another! but why don't you want to make another , everyone loves them?
I just finished "Forever..." I loved it, but what happens with Theo and Katherine? Do her and Michael get back together? My friend and I would love to know.
hi miss judy blume, my name is aaliyah mohammed and i am from trinidad. i am writing to ask you about your book: "its not the end of the world". when i read this book, it was very interesting but at the end i thought it ended abruptly. my question to you is, what happened after, did the parents divorce and what did the girl, karen did? thank you for your time.
Dear Judy, I really liked the Fudge books and I think you should write another one. What happens to Peter's teeth? Do they go on the Hawaiian boat trip? What happens when Tootsie grows up? Does Fudge buy Washington DC? If you could write another sooner or later, that would be very nice. Love, Digby
I like the Fudge books!

I liked when fudge ate peter`s turtle. I wish I could meet you .You have the most creative mind ever I love all your books can`t wait to more of your books by.
Here are some of the following questions I have for Judy Blume:
~Were you confident about your first book?
~Why did you choose to write about the unusual topics you write about?
~Did you ever get tired of being a writer? If so how old were you and why?
~Is the book coming out in June your last book?
~How did you decide to be a writer?Did your parents encourage you?
~Did you have other dreams as a kid?
~What was the best thing that ever happened to you? When and where?

Sincerally Gina m
I am a HUGE fan of your books "Soupy Saturdays with The Pain and The Great One"and "Fudge-a-Mania". Whenever I read one of your books I can not stop reading it. When I am not reading or doing anything I read your books. I hope you make another book with Fudge and Peter that young readers like me (or anyone that likes your books, which I'm sure alot of people do.) can read.
I like Superfudge, it makes me laugh and I hope I will meet you.
Your books are simply amazing. I have read every single one, over the years, and continue to re-read my favorites, every couple of years - Are you There God, Its me Margaret, and Smart Women. Your books got me through teenage years and college, and somehow, I kept the best for last - I finally read Summer Sisters and it made my heart smile. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Currently Im in a EDUC class at Clayton State University and I have the pleasure of having you for my Author Study. Enjoyed reading "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret." And I was not aware of your book coming out in June of this year. I only thought you did YA books. I'm looking forward to reading this novel along with the other adult books.
will you be making anymore fudge books because I love them.
Love your books and will definitely share them with my children, 5 and 2.5. Read then all when I was younger. Happy to have Googled you and to see you just celebrated your 77th Birthday. Happy Birthday. Peter
Thank you for your amazing books. I read my first one in 1990 when i was 13. I was so shocked when i found out that some of your books had been written 20 years earlier. I've read most of them and now my oldest daughters are 11 and 9 I'm lending my books to them. Shocked to realised that are you there god its me Margaret is 45 years old and my daughters can still really relate to it today. I'm going to keep forever back for another couple of years. Thank you Judy.
there are some books like deenie, places i meant to be, soupy saturdays, cool zone and especially here's to you rachel robinson. how do i get these books.
