I teach Year 4 in Australia. We just read Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing. The class really enjoyed the book. Thanks
Oh yeah, Judy your book Superfudge is a Battle of the Books book this year. That is one of the only reasons I joined. Also I read your books when I am sad, because they make me feel better.
Can you make a new Fudge book but have it about Tootsie?
I love your books I just finished fudge-a-mania and I'm on otherwise known as shelia the great. I think you should do movies for the series with Peter and shelia and fudge and relitives thank you for writing these books bye! -Trinity
Dear Judy Blume r u going to be writing any more books love ur books
Hi Judy...I'm an Australian author of children and YA books. Just wanted to let you know we have released a series called Girl V the World. One of the inspirations was...you! The way you handled transitions into adulthood and all the prickly bits that accompany it is fantastic. Would love to get you some copies if you're interested. Cheers and thanks...Chrissie
As a child, I was among the first to fall in love with your "FUDGE SERIES", but most of all, "Freckle Juice"!
I grew up in Texas, and they hd all of your available books at the time, I think I read them so many times that I memorized and dreamt about them.
Now that I am a mother of a 6 year old son, and I live in rural Maine, I was sad to see that the school my child attends, has a small library and no Judy Blume section. As my son brings home the Scholastic book ordering sheet, I scavenge the pages looking for any sign of one of your books.
His school has 1 class for every grade and a minimal amount of money, with even poorer children and the teachers....Well, they work so hard with minimal pay, it sickens me.
For this month, I was so please, actually in a tingle, that the Scholalastic book order form had "Freckle Juice", I bought 7 copies of it!
One for Kinder, 1st, 2nd, 3/4th (it's a combined class), 5th, and the library. I am hopingthat with miminal book stores around here, I can find the rest of your phenomenal books. I think the children will adore them all.
I know, personally, my son LOVED "Freckle Juice", as did the 1st grade class. I tend to read books aloud with vigor, excitement, and character voices. To me it keeps them excited too.
I just want to thank you, for your extraordinary gift that you've shared all these years, that I now can share with my son. You were the catalyst for me, to have a lifelong love for reading. I continue to read 7 to 10 novels a month. The gift of the love of reading is something that cannot be taught, it has to be enriched at a young age, and nurtured through the years. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I just finished Tiger Eyes (don't worry, I'm much above my grade's reading level) and I'm amazingly emotional. Can you please do something like a minor sequel or just email me an idea? The ending with Wolf made me super anxious to get the rest of the story! Thanks
Hi, I love all of your books. I'm starting to read another one...............I can't wait to get my hands on it and read it. I've read all the Fudge books so I decided to reada different book and I think it will be great..............I would really love to meet you. I think you are a great author.........I've read so many biographies about you. I'm glad your books entertain me!!!!!!!!
I love all of your books!But my favorite is FUDGAMANIA I am your BIGGEST fan.......
I just wanted to say "thank you" for being you! I can't imagine making it through my entire childhood without your books to inspire me and make me feel like a normal girl. Even now at the age of 36, I can still pick up "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret" and enjoy it as much as I did 25 years ago. I have recently introduced the Fudge books to my 9-year-old daughter, and she's hooked! You are the best!
I love your Fudge books!Ecspeically,Super Fudge.LOL!Keep writing! =) <3

I first read your books as a 12 year old. My parents had recently split up and my dad had moved to america, while we still lived in ireland. My sister and I went to visit him that first summer and we fell in love with your books. The books in america for teenagers were so grown up compared to the books we had in ireland. We bought all your books and brought them back to Ireland with us, and leant them to all our friends, even our mother read them. Recently I discovered your adult books so I bought them too and I'm looking forward to reading them! I hope you are well now. I lost my mother to lung cancer 15 years ago, when she was 52.

Hi! i live in south wales and i love your books! they have helped me through the first few ,months of high school and i want you to know how much they are appreciated! i would rather write you a letter as you probably wont see this but thats what i wanted to tell you.
Judy, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was a book I'll never ever forget. My fourth grade teacher read it to us, and it was amazing. You are absolutely wonderful and your book is really amazing. I'll never forget it!
i like your stories
When I was growing up I always had a Judy Blume book (..or several) on my nightstand table. I found her through the Fudge books around the 4th grade, and as I got older, Judy came right with me. "Margaret" helped me *so* much at such an awkward age, I'll always remember what it did for me and now my daughter, recently turning ten, has found Judy as well! Thank you so much Judy for giving us these wonderful characters that are absolutely ageless.
I read Are you there, god? Its me, Margaret and i thought you wrote it as it was!!
I dunno about that thing with two minutes in the Bathroom, but the growing up, club with friends, and margaret's worry about her period.. it's so real!!
kathrin, Your Biggest fan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*****
Just spent some time reminiscing about the life and times of your awesome stories I read in elementary school. I was never allowed to read "Forever". After all these years, I might just have to download that on my kindle. Publishing my first book this summer which is why I visited your site. When I was young, I'd cover up your last name, and pretend it was my book. If only...thank you for all of the many hours of enjoyment reading about characters who could easily have been my friends. Much love to you. Judy
Hi! I love your books so much. I think "Fudge-A-Mania "is the best book you wrote. I read the books again and again.I also listen to your CD every day. I am a big fan of yours!!! Good bye!!
My children love books
Im a superfan of you Judy Blume. My Class has been reading "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" it is pretty amazing. The best part is when Fudge swallows Dribble. Are you gonna write another book for kids? Please!!!
Message for Judy if possible. hi Judy, I am a retired teacher of 3rd graders. I have read your books orally over and over again and made Freckle Juice more times than I care to count. The Pain and the Great One hit home when my two daughters could so relate even though they were the same genders. Now I teach a Literacy course in the College of Education at my alumini university where I continue to recommend Judy Blume books as read alouds or introducing to students as an author for independent reading.
This past summer my married daughter wanted to have the first mother/daughter book club in her neighborhood mostly 3rd grade daughters. I was asked what book. I suggested SHEILA, THE GREAT! Moms and daughters read it and the night was a success. I saw you on 60 minutes and read about you and your son's joint venture turning Tiger Eyes into a movie. That was one book I hadn't read. I immediately downloaded it on my Kindle and loved it! I will wait a few years before I recommend it to my granddaughter. Now I can't wait to see the movie. So glad you continue to add to your repertoire. You still make me smile and cry!

Just checking on my Shero. When I here you name it gives me goosies. I am going to buy my grandson your books. I think they are great. I have the burning desire to write, but cann't get started after my computer was stolen, and my 2 manuscripts were gone. But I will do it. I hope you are having a great day. I will send you a snail mail when I can. Have a great day Judy. Please say hello to your son. Oh......We have another thing in common. The Month that we arrived in our birth date suits, but our dates are 5 days different. Stay cool my friend.
I love your books about Fudge. Can you please write more? My whole family enjoys them and I love all the funny things he does.
I read Superfudge and I thought it was so funny!Thanks for writing the book!
You are an awesome author, and I am going to start reading more books from you. I found out about you just a week ago when my friend had the book "Are you there God? It's me Margaret." She let me read some and it was a very interesting book. When I was in 4th Grade my teacher would read this Fudge books, they were so funny! I am really liking your books, and I hope you can make new ones!
Dear Judy blume,
I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE your book Blubber. I like it because it shows how bullying is like so wrong to do.
Dear Judy Blume I reeally like your two books tales of a fourth grade nothing and Blubber.For my book report my lieracy gorup was picked for reading Blubber and my teacher read the whole class the book tales of a fourth grade nothing.
dear judy blume , i really love your book tales of a fourth grade nothing its my favorite book of all time i really love fudge he sounds adorible.
enjoyed your interview on Rock Center,your books are very inspiring to the young,would love to read one geared towards my age group,perhaps one of your characters in her later years going through menopause!am introducing your writing to my 10 year old grand niece,who loves reading
I just wanted to thank you so much for the reply to my son's guestbook comments. He was so thrilled to receive your email. I was too. Julien is nine years old and has autism. He has a book report to do for school and he chose Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. He has difficulty with comprehension, so I was hoping he would be able to follow what was going on in the story. This was a big jump from what he normally reads. Much to my surprise, he not only understood the story, he couldn't get enough of it. He was however very sad when Fudge ate Dribble. He was in tears and he sobbed for almost twenty minutes. Many, many thanks to you for a fantastic book. It was a special experience for us to share.
I saw you on the PBS Makers program. Fantastic! As a kid, I read your hits...never did I really stop to reflect and consider how your efforts as a woman, let alone an author, have contributed to my own ability to succeed and continue to explore the opportunities. Thank you.
hi!i love your books!!!!!u r amazing!!!i like your book,"double fudge"love it!!!i liked "tales of a fourth grade nothing"alot.
Judy the first time I read a book written by you, I was in 4th grade Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing. I was hooked. I could relate to your characters and being shy I didn't always want to ask my mom. Now I have an 8 year old daughter that is asking a lot of questions and I am going to introduce her to your books. I think in many ways she'll relate to the characters as I did. I am so glad you are still writing and that my daughter will enjoy your books too.

I enjoyed every book that you wrote and like see Tiger Eyes in May. Thank you for your 12 year old mind
