Dear Judy Blume,
I very much liked your Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing series, and ask you to please do one, two or a few more books. But, please don't add in the Howies because they were really annoying.
I am now reading Blubber. Thank you for writing these amazing books!
I just want to say thank you. Your writing really did change my life. Even though I'm almost sixteen, "Are you There God, It's Me, Margaret" is still my favorite book. When I was in middle school, I would read about Margaret and Blubber over and over again. A few years back you had a book signing at USM and I regret it all the time for not going. You know what would be absolutely amazing? A part two to Margaret's story. I would do anything to read about her as a teenager, sometimes I sit and ponder what she would be like. I've never felt so connected to a fictional character, and I would love to get that feeling again. I know your book demographics are a bit younger than I am, but I would be the happiest person in the world if you write a part two. I'm sorry, I just kind of kept typing what I felt. I originally came here to tell you how great of an author you were but my thoughts started to wonder. I just wanted to say thank you.
I HAVE A SORE THROUT AND YOU WON'T ANSWER ME MY STUDENT TEACHER LEFT ME AND I MIGHT NOT SEE HER AGAIN CAN THIS DAY GET ANY WORSE.AWW MAN ITS SNOWING
Hello Judy, just wanted to stop in and say hello. Me and my sisters are huge fan of yours and have been sense we first read The Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing.
Any how I'm not sure if you'll see this or if you even do things like this but my sister, Kim's birthday is coming up this June and I was wondering if I sent you a copy of her all time favourite book, Summer Sisters, if you could signed it for her? I understand if you don't but thanks in advance.
Ms. blume, from my age you can tell I grew up with your books. I want you to know I have given 'forever' to 4 of my friend's daughters. I cannot begin to say the impact you have had on my life. From your light , funny 'one in the middle' to your real life 'then again' books. In a time when grown up topics were barely discussed, you were the aunt that told me what life is really about. Now my son reads super fudge and I want you to know your legacy is far reaching. Thank you for being there while I became a woman
CAN YOU PLEASE SEND A HELLO TO MRS.MARTINEZ CLASS FROM PINE JOG ELMENTRY. I GOT TO DO A AUTHOR STUDY ON MY FAVORITE BOOKS, PETER IS MY FAVORITE. THANK YOU AND REMBER TO GO GREEN. FROM Ricardo
Hey Judy! I just wanted to let you know that you did amazing things for me throughout my life and when my teacher this year in my senior year of high school said you have to write a research paper on someone and their effect on literature. I honestly couldn't think of anyone else to write about! Thank you for writing everything you have and for fighting the censorship of your books. Thank God your books were not banned from me because i don't know where i would be without them! Thank you so much Judy!
iI love reading your books .... they are amazing ! your book heres to rachel robinson is my favorite . Rachel is exactly like me . It is the first time that i found a book exactly describing me ..

Also it helped me by it shows me that not to be afraid to tell who you like because this boy in my class Tylik, I likedbhim and it turns out he likes me.
I would like to know is it fun to be a writer. I just wanted to say hello.
HI I LOVE YOUR BOOKS I WANT TO MEET YOU SOME DAY
Why did you start writting books? I love all of your books I've read them all. They are so good. ♥
This is Eliany one of Mrs. Kiefabers students. I am going to writ another one next week. I am going to perswad you. I can not tell you it.Plese writ back.
You have a terrific website. I am here as part of a school assignment. I had to look at a website of an influential writer. I chose you because I am wanting to write children's stories. You are truly an inspiration.
Hi Mrs. Blume,
My name is Staci Kiefaber. I am a second grade teacher in Dahlonega, Georgia. My students are very passionate about your Fudge series books. We have read three of your five books so far this school year. My students are great writers. They came up with the idea to write a persuasive letter to you convincing you to write more Fudge books. Next week they are planning to do a writing assignment to you so be ready for 21 persuasive letters in your Guest Book. Our school is Lumpkin County Elementary! Go LCES! Your fan, Staci Kiefaber
As my boys start to read your books, I have never been more excited to introduce them to an author. My parents never talked to me about puberty, sex, or anything uncomfortable growing up and your books (you know which ones!) were like a Bible to me. They helped me through so many insecurities and struggles and I attribute the fact that I'm a fairly well-adjusted happy adult to the influence you had on me when I was a pre-teen. Thank you so much for your honesty and courage over the years. You are the primary reason I believe censorship is so harmful for kids. Because of the controversy over your books in the 80's, I have gone on to read every banned book I can find, and it has made me a richer, more fulfilled person. Thank you, thank you, thank you, a million times over. You are my hero.
just love alll and alll of your books i have a whole collection of the and ................. just one of your biggest fans hey wait yours and your books fan
Hi I'm Elly and I have only read two of your books and I will now definetly be reading your other books as well.
I am doing a book report and I have decided to it on
Year 5 and I are reading FUDGE-A-MANIA as a class and my teacher and year 5 love your books.
I hope you write many more books.
Love Elly your biggest fan
I'm in high school and in my English class we were given the assignment of writing an essay on a controversial topic. For my topic I'm writing about the censorship and banning of books. I picked this topic because I love to read. As I got deeper into my research, I became more and more enraged at the ridiculous reasons for the removal of certain titles. But you have helped me so much in the process of writing this speech. I read your book "Forever" because I was curious about why it has been challenged. And when I found this website I was so happy to read about an author's opinions on the subject. Thank you so much for writing and inspiring others like you have inspired me.
I LOVE your Fudge books sooooo much. They are the only way I can fall asleep at night, by listening to your audio books. Can you PLEASE write another Fudge book where the Hatchers rent a trailer and go camping for a few weeks. Oh, and on the camping trip can you let Buzzy Senior and Grandma Muriel go too, please.
hello judy this month at our school is march reading month and third grade is studdying from you
hi wassup lolololol umm i love your books especially "as long as were together" and "heres to you rachel robinson" and i wanted to say thanks because my bffs and i readit and we HAD the same problems and thanks to you theyre fixed
Dear , the author that understands, Judy Blume,
I'd like to thank you for all of the books I have been reading since I was 9 and how they have now prepared me for a less complicated adolescence. From the dealing with a younger sibling Peter Hatcher to the confused about growing up Margret Ann Simon. Also for the book I've read over 5 times: Blubber. I, myself are a tiny but overweight and dealing with criticism is much easier now. I've entered high school and its stopped but know and then I hear some from older students. I block these taunts out. I hope someday I can hear back from you or even meet you. Meeting you would be absolutely WONDERFUL!!! Anyway, I know you have more mail and em@ils to read and hopefully more books for teenagers.
Yours sincerely~Amber Jade.H
P.S I really hope to hear back from you. I love your spectacular work!!:] <3
Chloe and jessica
HI! how are you i have talked to you before i am a writer and i am sharing my story on this coming Thursday me and my mom LOVE your books she kept starring sally j.freedman as herself we LOVE your books
love,Chloe and Jessica
I have just discovered you...Summer Sisters is a masterpiece. I am an avid reader, but, only recently have I discovered books from earlier in the 90's (thanks to the late husband of a fried who was a collector (& reader) of books. She has shared with me boxes full that have been stored in their garage. Never have I been brought to serious tears as well as heart felt emotion reading a book. It is beyond a "good book". Your depth in the characters, all participants, but, certainly Vix and Caitlin...this could have been written in today's times. This would be a best seller today. This should be made into a movie. This is the best book all around of any I have ever read. Trust me....I will go to Amazon and get all of your books. I just had to write and tell you you are a master of people. Thank you.
ps: At my age I do not consider myself as elderly. I am very active (including golf) and my 6 grandkids don't consider me an old lady...and until I read Summer Sisters I thought F.Scott Fitzgerald was the greatest writer of people.
how do you write so many books.
Dear Judy Blume,
You were a big inspiration on my life with "Are You there God it's me Margret". I also really loved "Starring Sally J. Freedman as herself". I would really love it if you would make a cross over book with one of your characters with Margret.
do you think I could be in your next book?

Hi Judy Blume,
What all books have you written including the ones which are not published?I love all your books especially The fudge series and Are you there god?Its me Margret.
I think you should write another Fudge book about when Fudge and his family go on a cruise to Hawaii and Sheila goes on the cruise along with the Natural Beauties and their family. The time should be at Christmas and Peter really wants a IPad or IPhone. Thanks for listening!
Please,please,please write another fudge book. I really love the series
Judy, where do I begin? evry single one of your books helped me reach my goals in life. The characters you create, relate to me somehow. I've read every single book you made. They are absolutely brilliant! Please respond back, and of course write more!
Sincerly, Your Friend Lorraine
I just finished reading "Summer Sisters" today while I was riding the train into work. I LOVED IT and plan to read it again. Judy Blume, PLEASE write a sequel!
I am reading sally J and sheila the great. mrs. swetnick was my great grandma. I like reading about her in your book.
Dear Judy Blume,
I love your books about Fudge and Peter and I want you to write another book about them. And in this one I really want to imagine in my mind what she will be like when she gets to be Fudge's age. So please write a book about it!
Hi wish u gooooooood luck don't stop writing ur fantastic fudge book
Hi! I have a suggestion: Why not publish another Fudge book? I bet kids will love it!
I love reading your books. They're amazing, I just
want to read them over and over again. I love reading fudge a mania tales of 4th grade nothing super fudge Sheila the great and double fudge
I had written you before an email, but SADLY lost the copy I had. I had really cherished that, and wanted to write again since it's been some time.
It's because of you, Judy, that I have enjoyed most all of my life the love of reading. It all started in Franklin Elementary School growing up in Syracuse, NY when the librarian gave me the book, "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". I had read it before library period ended, and went back to her explaining what I loved about the story.
It was about 4 years ago when I had realized I had not read your Adult titles, and so within 6 weeks had them read, and want to say, "I absolutely Loved them!" They had me longing I could find someone to love again. I did, but she turned out to be Ex Wife #2 which I am ashamed to say because all I have ever wanted in my life is to love someone who would love me back.
I am a 46 year young Christian Gentleman who thinks love notes should be written daily; Flowers given to your sweetheart more than a holiday; by the way, "Happy Valentine's Day to You!";that doing dishes for your special someone any day and or every day is something I have done before(3 years straight in my first marriage);massaging a woman's feet when she comes home and is tired;hugs and kisses daily;and simply calling her when I am out so she doesn't worry where I am; as well as simply being LOYAL to her and her alone! Listening, Laughing, Embracing, and Looking at Her when she speaks to me.
Sorry for rambling..I know that your busy?!!
I have always had a crush on you since I was in Fourth Grade reading all the books I could get my hands on that you wrote. When I would look at your photo I would simply think, "Oh, to be in love with Judy?!! How divine that would be!" I think your one of the most attractive authors I have ever enjoyed reading, and envy the man who has had the oppportunity to do so! He's a lucky man, Judy, and don't ever take yourself for granted in this respect! Your definitely worth the time and energy placed in this life to be so loved!
Well, Happy Valentine's Day again, and God Bless you and your family!
In His Grace and His Love,
a huge fan of yours now and FOREVER;
P.S. It was 18 years ago today on this day in 1996 that I walked into a house in Bucksport, Me with my then first wife and her daughter. We were looking to buy a house. The Living Room had Hearts on the Wallpaper of which I unknowingly did not realize it had, and after we were done looking at this 4 acre property with a West End Orchard, 2 Acres of North woods, Garden on East End with Garage and Workshop she loved it. It also had a spring on the property that was the sweetest water I have ever drank! I turned to her and said, "Happy Valentine's Day, Love!"
Did I tell you I am a Hopeless Romantic, wanting to be a Hopeful Romantic! I pray I find her one day when I least expect it?! I so long to love a Loyal, Christian Woman who is careful what she eats, exercises and will be a Loyal Partner in wanting to Fully Love me "Forever!"
Hello I love reading your books because they are so funny.I wanted to ask you so how do you come up with the characters? How old are you? Are you writing a book right now?
