"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 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 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.

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?
