Dear Mrs. Blume,
Thank you for being such an inspiration to me throughout those awkward middle school years. You have sincerely taught me that I am not alone with all of the problems I face in my everyday life. You have also let me be comfortable in my own skin by showing me that all girls go through the same stages in growing up. Also, you have let me love who I really am as well as develop a pure love for reading. My mom introduced me to your book "Are you there God, it's me, Margaret?" when I was in third grade and in all honesty, I have read that book probably close to twenty times by now. I am unexplainably thankful to have had your books to turn to whenever I had a question about growing up. It was much less embarrassing than asking my mother. I will continue to read your books as I am finishing up high school, and once I am done with all of them, I will just continue to reread again and again. I actually decided to write my research paper on you a few years ago because that's just how inspiring you are to me. I hope that one day my children are blessed with having the pleasure to read your brilliant works while growing up. You will forever be my favorite author.
I have a book collection of yours it has 3 stories. Deenie,It's not the end of the world'and Then again,maybe I won't.I started reading it last to first. So i just got done with then again maybe I won't it was an amazing book I just wanted to tell you.
Dear Judy, I've been reading your books since 1974(5th grade)and enjoy sharing them with my nieces today. My mother gave me my copy of "Forever" when I was in the 8th grade. She also liked your books and the conversations that came along with me reading them. Thank you for putting words to paper and changing the lives of so many young adults. Wishing you good health any many more years of writing.
Hi! I love your books and am one of your biggest fans. I have written 258 stories in the past three years. Do you have any tips on getting any of my stories published? Thank you!
I love your books.
hello,judy arthur,I am amy. I was excited to read your book.^^thank you for writing books for kids.
HI JUDY,I really love your books
all fudge serious
You are an amazing storyteller. Thank you for all your hard work.
Judy anymore novels planned geared toward the adult crowd enjoyed wifey many years ago.
Hey Judy, I will like you to make a continuation of the book Forever.... I will like to see what happens next in the book after Theo called. I'm also looking forward to your book and movie Tiger Eyes. You are an inspiration to me Judy, and I will love to be a writer someday.
Judy, you are a national trasure.
Hi Judy I just want to say I am a huge fan of yours. Your books helped me so much when I was growing up. They answered so many of my questions I wouldn't dare ask my parents. They were a big part of my childhood and adolescence and I have introduced my 9 year old son to the fudge books which he absolutely loves. He gets so excited going to bed at night to read them and its lovely to pass a part of my childhood down to him.
I just wanted to tell you that growing up your books were so wonderful for me to read. I absolutely loved "Forever". I am having my teen daughter read it. Thanks for writing such wonderful books.
3/4B Orana Heights Public School
It's 3/4B here. We have just finished reading your first book in the series of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. It was a great book. We have really enjoyed it and have been very inspired. Our class would often sit around our classroom and practice our reading aloud skills. Each day that we read your book we wrote about it in our reflection journals.
For some of us, it was the funniest book we have ever read in our classroom. We thought the funniest part was when Fudge ate Dribble.Some of us also thought it was hilarious when Fudge jumped off the jungle gym and lost his two front teeth.
You have so many original ideas. Where do you get them from? We are really interested in watching a movie on Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Have you ever thought about having one made? We also wanted to know if it is a fun job writing books?
We will always remember your books. Thanks for reading our letter.
Dear Judy Blume,
I love the series Fudge. It is so funny. In fact I was so inspired by Fudge that I would love to read Fudge every day! I have some questions like:
What is your favourite Fudge book?
Are you going to write another Fudge book?
Hopefully I become an author. I canít wait till I get the series of Fudge! At the moment Iím reading Super Fudge. My favourite is Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great.
From your number two fan of Fudge (Maddie from my class is number one!)
P.S. I didnít like reading until I read Fudge!
P.S.S. The email is for my teacher. We would love it if you responded!
I like the book. Thank you very much for writing the book. I really liked the part when Andrew painted the freckles on his face and went to school.
I love Freckle Juice. I don't like Sharon in Freckle Juice though. It's funny in the part when Andrew gets tricked. I love the book.
Dear Judy Blume, At the moment I am reading your Fudge books. They are really funny books. I sometimes read them at school but mostly at home. I am up to the second book. I love Fudge books a lot and thatís why I also love reading. I used to hate reading until I discovered some really interesting books, and your books are some of them. I also like that Jeff Kinney (who wrote Diary of a Wimpy Kid) loves your books too.Your books about Fudge are really interesting, like when Fudge swallows Peterís Turtle.What other books do you have?
From your number one fan,
PS The email belongs to my teacher.
Hi, just wanted you to know another generation of readers is engrossed in your books. I'm enjoying re-reading them to kids ages 8 and 10; but was disappointed to see the edits made to update the content. A book is written in a certain time and place and to try to alter it thirty years later takes away from the experience of learning about that time and place. I credit Sally J. Freedman with exposing me to a time and culture I never would have known in rural Louisiana in the seventies. It may seem a small thing to give the Hatchers laptops, MP3 players and CDs, but it confuses the setting. Should the Ingalls family pile into a Suburban and zone out in front of their DVD players as they move across the prairie? I think not. Please reconsider for future editions.
we read all your tales of the fourth grade nothing series. you should make another book like fuge goes to 4th grade. peter goes to college. tootsie grows up. fuge gets a dog. there is alot of things and more books you could write.write like a different kind of book like a town that it is sunny all winter and snows all summer.and there is school all summer and no school when it is not summer.clouds are on the ground and the ground is in the sky. and houses are upside down.and people talk back wards but not all the time.and there is not a hill that goes down but the biggest one is called the big one.and everyone is scared to go down it but one person was riding there bike and lost controll and rode down and they never saw him again that is why everyone is scared to go down it. i hope you make it if you make it make more then one book make a serie of 1 or 6 books bye
My favorite book is out of all is double fudge.We just finished the book double fudge.My favorite character is Peter because he is like me I have a younger brother.When are you going to make another book?You should make the book called Fudge goes to High School.Do you like writing books as a hobby.We like reading your books.Can you make another series so my class can read it before the end of the school year.Thank you answer back.Thank you for reading the letter.
Dear Judy Blume;
My class and I read the entire series about Peter,Sheila,and Fudge .I think you should write another Fudge book about Jimmy Fargo,Peter's best friend and how he feels about his dad getting remarried .This was just an idea to make another Fudge book.
Hi,My class has been reading your Hatcher family books and we love them.We were wondering if you were having any plans for a new 5th book because my class was having many ideas like Peter goes to College,a separate book about Jimmy,Peter and his family go to Hawii to see the ''Natural Beauties'',or start the book series over as ''Tales of a fourth grade Tootsie'',or when Tootsie becomes Peter's age.I hope some of these ideas are helpful to you and that they make it into a book.
Hi Judy! I really enjoy your books they are hilarious!!! I really enjoyed your last book Double Fudge with the heavenly hatchers.I really wanted to know if you are making a new book.It could be about Tootsie. I hope you make a book about Tootsie.
I love your books.I have read all your books.I hope you are going to make more if you are planning to make another book I have lots of great ideas like when Tootise grows up and she's in fourth grade and Peter in Collage
I have read your Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing. I loved all of them.

Hi Judy Blume . I am a fan of your books .In my class we read the whole series of your books. I have sent you a message before and i doubt that you read it .i really like your books especially the double fudge, Fudge is really funny. Me and my classmates were wondering if you are going to or are working on writing a 5th book about Peter , Fudge , Tootsie all grown and going to college maybe???

you should make new book of the hatcher famliy
Hi, Mrs.Blume ! I just wanted to say I finaly read tiger eyes and it was amazing! It is my new favorite book, I love the way you used your words it was so detailed I could perfectly see the characters in my head! It was so sad to me because my dad died too so I could feel daveys pain through out the book. I know how hard it is to loose a family member that close to you, its much different than having your dog die or uncle.well anyways I'm still not sure if I want to see the tiger eyes movie because I have a distinguished way I imagined them from how you described the characters in the book, and I'm nervous if I see the movie I will be upset on how the actors/actress look. Buy I probably will and up seeing it one day. Ok that's all!
- love you,Lola
"Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" was so important to me growing up. It helped me get through puberty. Any chance you'll update it to let us know how she deals with menopause? I need a trusted resource.
Hello, Judy Blume! I'm 12 years old, you've emailed me a few times, but I just wanted to send a message to you again! I'm in middle school, so I have summer homework, and I need to read a book with a lexile of around 1200. Do you have any books that would be appropriate but harder that I could read? Let me know, and I'm a big fan of you, and you have inspired me to want to write a book when I'm older. So let me know if you have any ideas! Thanks!
I love Summer Sisters its my all time favorite book.I read it every year in May to get me pumped for summer xo Judy you rock !
hi judy, i have been a teacher's aide in a kindergarted classroom for many years. i see many problems that children have with learning specific skills. i've been writing books to help overcome these problems and friends and family are encouraging me to get them published. i don't have the first clue as to how to do this. can you help? is it as simple as sending a copy of a manuscript to a publishing company? i want my books to reach all kindergarteners around the world. thanks
Hi Judy; I just read the Los Angeles Times article about you, fascinating. I want to tell you, I grew up in LA and met the man I would marry in LA. He grew up in Elizabeth. We married a year later. And I lived in Elizabeth from '47 through 1955. If you cared to meet me - we could, I've a lot to share with you. By the way I'm writer too. We will meet at Shutters, or wherever... BW.
I am a longtime fan who is being re-introduced to your books through a college course on Banned and Censored Literature. I just finished Forever and am reminded of why I loved your books so deeply as a teen reader. I remember feeling that Are You There God? It's Me Margaret was written for me and me alone. It touched me so. Thank you for always being an inspiration and for your tireless efforts at protecting intellectual freedoms.
i don't like freckle juice at all
I just wanted to let you know I was a huge fan of your books growing up. I read them all them multiple times a a child. I recently borrowed some of the books you wrote from our local library and started to read them to my 8 year old daughter. We started reading tales of a fourth grade nothing tonight before bed and she laughed at some of it while I was reading. I forgot how much I loved your books as its been along time since I've read one.. I advised my daughter that I wrote you in elementary school and thought itd be cool to let you know that my daughter appreciates your writing as much as I do!!
Thought I would let you know how awesome of a writer you are!
Dear Judy Blume,
I love your books a lot. They are great. I have read Are you there god? It's me, Margaret, Just as long as we're together, Here's to you Rachel Robinson, Deenie and The Fudge Books. I think I am most like Margaret in Are you there god? It's me Margaret. What book are you writing now? I love writing books. Thanks for the great books!
Your #1 fan,
