I love your books. And I love to read. I've read 18 books this summer. I have some questions. What is your favorite book? Do you have time to read? Are authors celebrities? What is your favorite book that you've written? Do books put you in a certain mood when you read them? Like for instance, you read a book and there is this drunken jerk being mean to people. Do you get put in an angry mood for what he says? I'm just curious. I want to be an author when I grow up so maybe I might not need these answers, but I would love them anyway.
Thank you for reading this if you do!
Judy Blume,you rock. I LOVE all of your books.I'm almost done reading all of the series. Thanks again. Once again, YOU ROCK!!!
Dear Judy Blume,
happy to share your birthday February 12th 1938. I know some other friends and writers among them born on this day but you are the only one I found being born the same year. I still teach Hebrew literature and have also sminars on books and songs for children, and I was glad to find many of your books were translated into hebrew as well.
Wishing you all the best, sincerely, Ruben
I am among your 1st generation of readers and have had my girls read you too. You were a huge part of my fondest childhood memories and I am hoping you will be in my children's as well
I read your 'Are you there,God? It's me,Margaret.'. I really liked it a lot.It brought out the girl in me.I would like it if you replied to me at my e-mail address.I really loved the part where Margaret knows Nancy lied to her about her periods at the restaurant.
Mrs. Talley's Second Grade
We are beginning your book Fudge-a-mania today. We are so excited!!
wish you could write a new book series about tootsie growing like fudge the series I hope this also inspires you signed coco
Hi Judy Blume!
I am writing a Book Report on Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing..I really like the book. My Mother read the book when she was my age and she remember the book like yesterday.
You got me through my teen years please get me through menopause!!! Please write books about menopause, aging and grand parenthood!! The world needs you.
Ps My friend Rowan says "hi"
I started reading and fell in love with your books when I was 9 years old. Now a mother of 2, a 5 year old girl and 10 month old boy, I've been thinking of all my great childhood memories and all the amazing books I read as a kid. I can't wait until she's old enough to enjoy "Are you there God, it's me Margaret?". It was my first "big girl" book and I will never forget that point in my life.
I'm writing you because when I was about 9 years old I remember a book being on our 5th grade reading list but that year it was banned. Somehow though, my Dad was able to get a copy mailed to him and I was able to read it. I remember being so proud that I was able to read it and own it! I can not for the life of me remember the name of the book. This was probably 1997 or 1998. I remember there being a bad word in the title, so at that age it was probably "stupid" or "shut up". If you could, I would love to know the name of it and if there is ANY way possible for me to get a copy of it to pass down to my daughter that would be AMAZING!!!
Thank you for all that you do, your words, stories and passion for open minded books is inspiring!!
I love your books they are so inspiring I read tales of a fourth grad nothing now my class and I are reading I think its otherwise known as Sheila the great. We are hoping to follow the odder. that's all for now from a girl named laetitia
I love your books a lot if you can, can you please put it in mail for Woodbridge avenue in Edison. also if you want to mail it put it as xxx. I live in Lenaar Homes. House number is xx.
Hello Judy Blume,
I love all over your books, and i dont even read many books. I have read Forever,all the superfudge and many others. I loved Forever when I got older but when I was little I loved all of the superfudge collection and Are you there got its me margret. Youre books have helped me so much, you should keep writing.
Dear Mrs. Judy,
Hi, this is Riwoo. My family is from South-Korea, but I and my parents live in Norway.
I have read: Deenie, Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, and Tiger Eyes. I'm considering reading Tale of a Fourth Grade Nothing or I can't remember what the title was, because as I went through what others had written in the Guest Book that one seemed the most popular
You always inspire me to write stuff, Mrs. Judy. It's nice, I guess, and I've always written poems and little stories (me too! Only on paper, though) when I learned to write and read. I really, really want to be an author!
Well, I hope you have a nice day, Mrs.Judy.
Dear Judy Bloom,
I appsolutly love your books and am begining to write on my own. My mother is an elementry school teacher and i run a bookclub for some of her students and this year we are going to read through your " Fudge" series. Your writing has always been an inspiration to me.
Dear Ms Blume
My name is Helen Gazis and I am a teacher at Brighton Le Sands Public School in Sydney.
My class is currently studying your book 'Tales of a fourth grade nothing'. They love it and as they are a year 4 (grade4) class they can relate. We have just finished making invitations to Fudge's party and the class is writing an acrostic poem about him as well.
We have googled his home address and the dentist opffice and the class is fascinated.
We had difficulty connecting to your email address so we thought of trying the guest book. 4G would love to send some pictures of their work if possible.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
We all came up with main characters
Dear Judy Blume,
I have just read Summer Sisters again for the second time. I read it last summer and pledged myself I would wait all year until the next summer to read it again and I plan to make it a tradition. Iíve loved your books since I was in third grade and Iím sure many others can say the same. Summer Sisters has really got me thinking about my future, I am soon to be a sophomore in high school and I know I will be facing the same challenges that Vix and Caitlin went through. Iím really scared for the future and for the world we live in. I would basically do anything to live in the sixties and seventies, but until they make a time machine I guess I will be stuck in my hopeless generation. I have no idea why I am writing you this letter to be honest; I just feel you should know how you have impacted my life. I was hoping I would write you something that would stand out against the rest but I really donít think I have achieved that goal. It would really mean the world to me if you would respond. Gosh Iím really rambling and this letter really sucks but you rock Judy, you really do.

My name is Ananya, I am 8 years old. Iím going to write my opinion about Tales of 4th Grade Nothing. As soon as I opened the book I knew it was going to be a fantastic book.
My favourite character was Fudge,he was really funny and really naughty. My favourite part of the book was when Fudge ate Dribble.It was so funny but naughty of Fudge to eat Peterís turtle. I also liked the when Fudge wanted the same shoes as Peter.
I canít wait to read the rest of your books like ĎOtherwise Known as Sheila the Great í, ĎSuper Fudgeí and Ď Fudge Ėa- Mania. I hope you come up with more fabulous books and I also hope their much more funnier.
Your sincerly Ananya
My name is dineth,I am 8 years old.I will be telling you about what I think about your book " Tales Of Fourth Grade Nothing. My class teacher has been reading Tales Of a Fourth Grade Nothing and finished reading it to us.
Now our teacher is reading ď Otherwise Known As Shelia the GreatĒ. I canít belive that Shelia is scared of dogs.
I think that Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is a really great book because you described what Peter was like.
I enjoyed Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing because there were funny bits like when Fudge acted like a dog under the table. Also the part where Peter,Fudge and their dad went to the cenimas and Fudge tried to touch the bears on the screen.
I also liked the part where they went to a resterant and Fudge threw the potatoes on the wall and when Fudge ate Peterís turtle.
Yours sincerly Dineth

I started reading because of your books (Tales of the 4th Grade Nothing) and as an adult I have loved your adult series. I was wondering if/when you are going to write another book for your adult series?
I just finished reading Tiger Eyes and had to take a moment by myself. It was such a wonderful, exceptional, and lovely book. I lost someone dear to me this year too and every word of the story rang true, particularly the part where Davey calls for her father in the canyon. Thank you so much for writing this. I think your husband and son are right; this is your best work. Thank you again. -- L

Dear Judy Blume,
I am so I happy I discovered your books. I love them so much I just started reading the Fudge Series and I love them so much. Thank You, Judy for sharing your great and Awesome stories.
HI Judy I just want to say that I am reading Sally J. Freedman as Herself and i love it so much. I have read from your sight and now I've learned that it was kind of your childhood memories
You are one of my favorite authors I grew up reading your books including Forever (before it was banned from school libraries) I hate censorship of books in schools because I feel it impedes the imagination of children who are going to become the next generation of authors like myself thank you for your brilliant work!
Thanks Judy dor being an inspiration for many years and for many young girls and women! I have your book "Wifey" several times and love "Summer Sisters". You have inspired me to write. Thanks so much!
I just finished Summer Sisters for, seriously, like the 25th time! It is absolutely my favorite book; I feel like I know the characters personally!
Although every time I finish it, I always am wishing for more! Do you think you'll ever write a sequel? Or...something?! What happened to Caitlin?! This novel is so good in so many ways that I can't put it down after I start it again. Please write another chapter! <smile>
Thank you for writing this book! I'm sure there will be any more Vineyard escapes in the future!
Hi, Judy Blume
I'm Kyeong-nam. I live in Seoul, South Korea.
I'm a housewife.
Theseday, I am reading your book "tales of a fourth grade nothing" with my friends. By the way I saw a sentence not to be able to understand on page 17. That is "I don't know who my mother thought she was fooling." I don't know "who" and "she" in this expression. "who" is just interrogative? "she" is only his mother? You're very busy but please explain this meaning.
Dear ms blume
I like your book Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing beacaus it is funny,cool,silly.You would have to be pretty funny to writen your AWESOME AMAZING WONDERFUL BOOK.
My favuorite part of your book Tales of A Fourth grade nothing is when Sheila is meant to being looking after fudg .well fudg is pretending to be a bird and falls and braiks his front to teeth .
My favourite character is sheila beacause she is nearly ois perfect.like what she did for the project.they did together.she is smart ,nice,pretty and Awesome. It is sort of like my life exept my brother is older.
Dear Judy Blume,
I like your book named Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing because,there are lots of funny bits like
when Fudge dressed up as a gorilla and scared the
And my favourite character in the book is Fudge
because he is funny and makes everybody laugh.
like in the parts when he lost his two front
teeth and when he ate Dribble the turtle.
I really like the story Tales of a Fourth Grade
Nothing and I hope that all the other stories will be funny and interesting like Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
Dear Judy Blume,
I have read your book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing It's AMZING and my Teacher is staring otherwise known as Shelia the Grate.I like how you made Peter name his dog at the end Turtle.
I like Fudge he sounds rally funny,he is pretty naughty too. I also wonder how the Juice-O would taste.
Fudge's belly must be rally strong because he ate two roses and Dribble,Peter's Turtle.If I had that I bet I would be sick for about 2 weeks.
Dear Judy Blume,
I think that Tales of The Fourth Grade Nothing is fantabulous. I love the bit when Fudge think he is a bird, and when Peter gets a dog and named it Turtle.
My favourite funny part is when Fudge pretended to be a dog and started to eat under the table . i also liked when fudge show Mrs. yube Dribble the turtle.
My favourite character is Fudge. I think that in the book Sheila is annoying to Peter. i think Fudge is funny because he messes things up, eats fower and bangs pots and pans.
I'm Amilie!your my all time favourite author! My parents are splitting up.do you have any advice?I don't know what to do.
Hey Judy Blume I love you fudge books you write i am reading the Book Double Fudge about Fudge talking about money all the time! it is a really good book you are really a good writer! I love your book!
Dear Mrs. Blume,
Tonight my son and I finished reading Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing. He is entering fourth grade this fall and I thought it would be a fun summer read for him (re-read for me). He loved it and can't wait to read the rest of the series! As we read the book and found Fudge (aka Fang) had covered the suitcase with green stamps, I turned to my son and asked him if he knew what a green stamp was? He shrugged his shoulders and said no. Lucky for both of us I still had two unfinished books of green stamps filed away from 20 years ago and I knew exactly where they were. I showed him the unfinished green stamp books and explained what they were used for, how you earned them, etc. I love that we now share a love for your books and I love that this book gave me an opportunity to share history of my generation with him and it didn't bore him one bit! Thank you and bless you for building a new common bond between mother and son.
