i like you
do you like the fudge books
I live in the UK and for my 16th birthday (I'm now 36) my sister bought me the original painting used for the front cover design of 'Then again maybe I won't'. She bought it from the artist who visited the London bar she worked in. She forgot to get it signed though and I'd dearly love to be able to contact the artist to get it signed. Cab you help me at all?
I was not interesting in reading as a child until I hit 6th grade and found YOU. I read your books over and over and eventually branched out into other authors, but it was because of you that I started reading.
I have been a 2nd grade teacher for 16 years, sharing some of your books with my students and now I'm somewhat changing careers and becoming a high school librarian.
I just want to thank you for all the books you've written and all the children you've turned into readers throughout the years. You are a wonderful inspiration!
Happy belated birthday, Judy! I am a third grade teacher at a small school in New Jersey. While reading started out as a challenge for my students this year, the tides quickly turned when I decided to switch to novels. Upon reading the Fudge series to my students, they discovered a new love for reading. We would love to share our success with you, if you are ever up for a visit to a tiny school in your home state!
I read your books as a child... grew up with you! Loved your books... they were such a part of my childhood (and my husbands)....sooo excited to start sharing them with my children! Especially my old original copies.
Thank you for all the wonderful stories!
I love your books. I have your book the pain in the great one. Im going to try to read it. I bet it is good. oh and before I forget HAPPY early VALENTINES DAY. make it sweet. BYE.
Happy Birthday to one of my favorite authors of all time! I am an avid reader, former book editor, and current travel blog writer and lawyer, and your books were instrumental in fostering my lifelong love for the written word. I live in NYC and have a home in Key West, and perhaps one of these days, I will be lucky enough to bump into you. Maybe I should start carrying around my well-worn copy of "Summer Sisters" just in case!
Happy Birthday Judy! I am a long time fan of yours. I grew up reading your books and loved all of them.
I just read in the paper today is your Birthday. Happy Birthday! When I read your name the first thing that popped into my head was your book, "It's Not The End of the World". In 1985 my ex and I split up, my son was 6 years old. We moved to a new area, first grade was at a new school. It was a very hard time. But one thing I remember is my son and I cuddled on the couch reading this book, we both laughed and cried together and your book helped. Thank You! Have a great Birthday.
I have a daughter in fourth grade that really enjoys reading Judy Blume books.She would most definitely have all of your children books if we can afford them. I as her mother do appreciate the books you have written she loves them so much and they keep her occupied.
Dear Judy, I was reading something today about Roald Dahl's daughter and thought about how fondly I loved James and the Giant Peach growing up. That immediately triggered thoughts of Peter and Fudge and Dear God it's me, Margaret. It made me look you up online and I see that I can leave you a message. My childhood was transported into another dimension because of people like you, who had the courage to put a pen to paper with their creative and wonderful stories and for that I will truly be forever in your debt. You have my gratitude for the day I got to hear my teacher read to us, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. And later, for all of your work. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for inspiring generations of people. You are appreciated.
Warmest Regards, Rhonda
Hi. I'm curious: in Blubber, was the name "Wendy" chosen deliberately to be ironic, as she's the opposite of the sweet lovable Wendy in Peter Pan?
What I pleasure to be able to tell you about your amaizing work! I just finished reading Summer Sisters and Im at a loss of words for your ability to keep a reader digging into the book.
I have to say the ending is wonderful as it can be interpreted in so many ways after all the adventure portrayed in the book.
I can not wait to acquire the rest of your books and read them all!
Thank you for sharing your work with the world!
what made you write novels
you made a impression on my mind that reignited in myself when my daughter entered fourth grade.
Hi,I like your books a lot. I am reading Blubber right now. You are an amazing writer/author. I hope you keep writing!
As a 39 year old woman, you have been a very big inspiration in my life, I thank you.I was addicted at a young age of your brilliance,all your books a new spectacular experience. My mother handed me Are you there God when I started. I am so excited about your new book. Thank you ma'am. Bless you
i love your books they are so awesome and mysteriouse that i half to read the next chapter or page even when it's bed time.
Hi! I was wondering how does your personal life affects your writing? By the way I love you fudge books! I think you should write about a girl in middle school who feels left behind when her friends develop before her. Thanks for considering. Also im writing a report on you so if you reply to that question with my email it would be a great help. Thanks again!

Hello Judy, I just perused your website as part of a research exercise in my creative writing class. One of the questions posed was "who do you admire and want to emulate." Since my daughter had read and loved many of your books when she was young, your name has always been at the top of my list of favorite authors. I think your site is wonderful, easy to navigate and inspiring with lots of good information.
I also read your personal experience with breast cancer in 2012. Very touching and transparent. Writing about everyday things gives a writer more than enough material, and through it God gives us more than enough grace when those things are life altering. No doubt you have found that to be true, as well. I pray your continued good health.
So, now that I am inspired on all levels, I can tackle my two children's books, For the Love of Big Balooka and Steggie The Needy Dinosaur, with less anxiety. Both fiction based on actual events.
Thank you again for the privilege of visiting your well-thought out website. It really was a pleasure! Godspeed, Kathy

Where can i buy your books? I have loved you books ever since i was younger, and now I want my kids to read your books.
Dear Judy Blume,
I truly enjoyed spending time reading your books trough out my childhood. I truly find you to be quite the inspiration to many of today's youth, including myself. I am currently in grade 10 and have taken the initiative to write a short children's novel to sell to a number of parents or teachers interested in purchasing the book. The profits will be donated to a children's charity which is yet to be decided, while the printed copies will be donated to the Montreal Children's Hospital. I would deeply appreciate any advice if you will be willing to share. Thank you for your time, sincerity Ashley R.
do you have any siblings?
Dear Judy Blume,
I love Fudge! He's so funny. I want you to make another book about Fudge. I hope you write back to me soon.
