I am a first-time author (of Edna In The Desert), and I am excited and humbled that someone compared me to you in a review. I can see how they might, I grew up reading your books. I never imagined, in my youth before the Internet, that I could someday come to a website where you would share your thoughts about the writing life. Your advice is great. I'm encouraged by the fact that you didn't have an agent until your third book (I don't have one!) and from what you said about rejection. This is really helpful as I begin my next book.
Thanks again for your books and for being you!
Dear Judy Blume
I'm from Sri Lanka. I started reading English books when I was 10 after reading your book Sheila The Great. I have almost all your books and still read them. My favorite is the Fudge series. I would be really glad if I can have an autograph from you.
Hi, I'm writing to ask if there's any "questions for discussion" for tiger eyes, which could be used to beater analyze the book.
PS. I love your books so much, and Tiger Eyes is one of my most favorite books ever
Hi, I am Anayah and I am doing a report on u do u have any advice.????
I think,since you have wrote four books about Fudge and one about Sheila you should write a story about Jimmy Fargo. About how he goes to Vermont to see his mother see if his parents will get back together. I love your books and that's why I want you to write a new one. I've read the whole Fudge series and I love it.
What is the name for the 6'th fudge book? &, Also, I have3/5 or,3/6 in this case. P.S. YOU ARE AWESOME!
Ryan & Matthew
Hi Mrs. Blume,
My brother and me have been reading all of the Fudge books and we just finished our first pain & the great one book - we really love your characters. And we noticed that we act the same way as the pain and the great one and we're the same ages. We think you write about really funny things and just wanted to say thank you for helping us enjoy our reading every day!

I don't know what to say really besides the fact that I love your books. They're so funny and I can relate to them in so many ways. One of my favorite books of yours is double fudge because I too have a younger sibling who, I love of course ,but still drives me crazy. Anyways just wanted to let you know I enjoy reading your books
did you do any thing beside WRITE BOOKS?!?!
I totes love your books.They are like totaly awesome.You are the best writer in the world. You are totes my favorite!
dear judy blume i think u should write more books until u have like 5,000 bokks because ur books are so funny and awsome to ready in my classroom we read tals of a fourth grade nothing.
ms.blume,would my dad like your book's? Could you give me some tips.? Thank you.
One last thing judy, you should make a book where Peter, fudge, tootsie, and Mr. and Mrs. Hatcher face a very, very serious ice storm (which breaks the Windows in the building and blocking people's doors, including the Hatcher's) and are snowed in for the entire month of December. Now Peter must survive a month in isolation with Fudge, something he has feared his whole life. It could be called Fudge-tastrophe (putting the word ''Fudge" in catastrophe).
Hi Judy I love all your books im doing a report on you with my friend and wanted to know your favorite color, food, and place to visit also wanted to know what its like to be an author? please email me
HI JUDY IM DOING A REPORT ON YOU I THINK YOUR A GREAT AUTHOR AND YOUR A ROLEMODEL TO ME PLEASE NOTICE ME.
What are your favourite snack/food/kind of food?
dear judy blume, i love your' books. i have read all the fudge books, the pain and the great one, blubber, and i'm currently reading iggie's house. the fudge books rule by the way. i'm positive that's a familliar comment to you and your' books. fudge-a-mania is my personal favorite though. you have actually inspired me to be an author myself. one more thing, you should make sequels to ''otherwise known as sheila the great''. if peter has his book series, sheila should have her own!
DEAR JUDY BLUME I THINK YOU SHOULD MAKE A BOOK ABOUT PETER'S GRANDMA AND BUZZY SEANER AN SHEILA ,LIBBY, PETER , JIMMY FUDGE ,TOOSIE AND THE DOGS YOU THINK EVERYTHING WILL GO WRONG BUT IT DOESN'T UNTIL THE LAST NIGHT PETER AND JIMMY WILL GO IN TO SHEILA ROOM AND THEY WILL PUT TURTLE IN SHEILA'S ROOM AND TURTLE WILL BE ON SHEILA AND SHE WILL BE JAKE ON HER BUT WHEN SHE SMELLS HIM SHE WILL KNOW IT WAS TURTLE BUT BEFOUR PETER AND JIMMY WILL BE OUT OF HER ROOM AND SHEILA WILL COME INTO JIMMY AND PETER ROOM AND SA Y DID YOU PUT THIS SMELLY DOG IN MY ROOM AND THEY WILL SAY WE DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT
Dear judy blume could you make another book about Sheila and her family, Peter and Jimmy will be happy or a book about peters GMA and Sheila's grandpa and toosie , fudge ,peter , Sheila , Libby spent the night with them and you think everything will go wrong but it doesn't and it will be a spreaise but the dogs will be there and when Sheila is sleping and peter will come in to Sheila's room they bring turtle in and put him on turtle on Sheila and she will think it is Jake.
Dear Mrs. Blume, I loved your books as a young girl and recently I had the pleasure of sharing one of your stories with my two young boys. We listened to your audio book, Double Fudge. My boys loved it! They have requested the whole series. What an amazing gift that you have....thank you.
ACRA Third Grade Class
Hi Mrs. Blume,
Our third grade class loved reading your Fudge books! They were funny and had surprising parts. Are you going to write any more books about Fudge and Peter? We have an idea for you....You should write books about Tootsie! Let us know!
all your books are wicked good!
I am in love with every single book of yours and you are a great inspiration!
Dear Judy Blume,
My Favorite book by you is Otherwise known as Sheila the great. I liked the part when Sheila's
dad said this funny thing. he said "Ah ha! I found a Sheila"! I also liked the cover of it.
The cover of the book has a dog shaking a pillow.
Your reader, Sophie
I read "Superfudge" when I was in Grade 3, and I remember laughing out loud reading it, it was such a delight for me: "How are you, Bert?"... “Well, I will tell you, my liver's turning green and my toenails are falling off.” That still cracks me up!
Thank you Judy Blume for introducing me to literature. I have been a voracious reader my entire life, and I credit those early years and your books for that, so much joy. Thank you.
Now my niece is 8 years old and I found my old copy, and purchased "Ramona Quimby", I am so happy and proud to give them to her, I hope she enjoys them as much as I did.
I had forgotten how important "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret" was in figuring out my own religious beliefs as a child. Then I listened to a song by Amanda Palmer, about you, and I cried. So, very belatedly: Thank you. And I hope you listen to that song too, If you haven't already. I imagine it would mean the world to Amanda.
I,m Karen,s son jahseer.What did peter do with the box of teeth after he went to sleep?
.p.s. I love your books!
Very good book make more please

I 💙 your book super fudge
Dear Ms. Bloom,
I was thrilled to select your name as the Great American Hero I am to portray during a special reception for third graders and our families at my elementary school. I will be preparing a speech, dressing like you, collecting props to represent you and even sharing a picture of you during my presentation. As luck would have it, I am visiting Key West next week and would love to take a picture in front of your house or even better get a picture with you - It would certainly make my presentation one of a kind - just like you. I'll be there on April 7&8, so let me know if you could help me in any way. Your friend, Maddie
HI JUDY I love your books and i doing a report on you
i love your story frekle juice!
I grew up reading your books, and I was very excited when my daughter started bringing home Fudge books to read. She LOVES them, and she can so relate to them. Recently, my 3rd grader was reading Superfudge. I was shocked when she brought it to me after reading the chapter "Santa Who" with all sorts of questions. I was shocked and disappointed that my daughter read this chapter in a 3rd grade reading level book. I wish you would consider taking that chapter out or rephrasing it. I skimmed through and didn't notice anything in that chapter that was extremely VITAL to the storyline. I still love your books, but I will reconsider letting my 3rd grader read them until I reread them!
How do you save a young girl from one of the most crime infested cities in the nation? You give her a book to read - one that she can love and feel through. For me that was Tales (of a 4th gd...), Are you there God... (which really walked me through puberty in a way that 2 older sisters and teasing brothers did not.
Thank you so much! Now I ready your books to my kids 9 (boy) and 11 (girl). Not because they can't, but because reading has become a beautiful family sport that allows us to laugh and snuggle and learn and love.
You were a gift from God. Thank you.
Hi Judy.This morning i was reading your book again.Just As Long As We're together.It's amazing.One page of the book is about you and i saw a link about your sate.This sate is cool,I love your's book's because I live the same life like characters in the book,and It's funy.Are You There God, It's Me Margaret is amazing book and very funny.Also on this sate i saw the trailer of the Tiger Eyes. OMG i need to wach but i can't now bc of school but tonight I will watch.
Hi Judy! Thank you for supporting me as I grew up. At 46, I decided to read Are You There God It's Me Margaret again… and I laughed and laughed at how important getting that period was to us all, only to be cursed for the rest of our years! HA! Anyway, I loved it again. Took me right back. But I would love to see you write "Are You There God It's Me Margaret and I am 56 and OMG"… I would enjoy know what happened to them all, including Grandma and Mr. Binaman (rhymes with Cinnamon!)… Thank you again. Just wanted to say hello.
I love your Fudge books and I was wondering if you are writing more because over the summer I read tales of a forth grade nothing I have a list of your books to buy I'm reading double fudge and reading super fudge with my class.I was wondering if you had any books about women being abused emotionally because my mom went through a bad break-up any way thank you for being you and I love your books.
I devoured your books (especially Are You There God, It's Me Margaret)when I was younger and now have the privilege of sharing and promoting them @ my library. I'm thrilled that you are being honored during Nat'l Library Week! I am creating a display in your honor in the Tinicum Twp Library entitled "Books in Blume". It will feature photos of your works in flower pots along with the actual book collection and facts about you. Hope it makes you smile
I just saw the film version of "Tiger Eyes". It was wonderful and it was great to see the characters come to life. Tiger Eyes has always been the book I go back to when a loved one has passed (unfortunately, way too many) and have bought copies for friends who have suffered a loss. I truly love your books: so hopeful and real!
I love the book are you there god because it teaches you a life lesson and how to become a book maker or writer.
Dear Miss Blume,
Hello! I just want to give a little thank you note for writing "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret." I loved this book so much. I read it all the time, and I can relate to some of the emotions Margaret goes through in the process of growing up. Thanks again!
- A. D.
your book doodle fugue rocks
I love your book "Are you there God? It's Me, Margaret." I love all of your books sooooooo much! <3
Thanks for writing back to me. Oh,and by the way at my school we're doing a wax museum and I get to be you! I was really excited because I love your books. I can't wait to read your new one! I hope it gets published. I'm thinking about becoming an author myself, and when it gets published I'll dedicate it you my inspiration.
I can't believe I am searching for books for my daughter. She's only almost 5, and I'm not sure yet how young your books go (I will research your site to find out), but I had an overwhelming need to type you a short note after seeing all of the nostalgic titles that got me through growing up. You LITERALLY saved my life as a young girl with your gift of telling stories. They helped me endure a less than pleasant upbringing; I would read them over and over until they would actually fall apart...I sure wish I had them to pass along to my sweetie, but I will take pleasure in purchasing fresh new copies when the time is right.
THANK YOU for sharing your talents with the world over the years (I cannot believe you are in your 70's! You look fantastic!!) I sure hope you are healthy and well, and that we can expect even more precious stories soon.
Yours sincerely, A true and devoted fan. I feel like you are my family. (Put it this way, I don't remember my life without Judy Blume!!) OK, I think you get the point. Much love!!
