Dear Mrs. Blume,
I am Sam, a fourth grader. I had a few questions about your book and it would be amazing if you could answer them.
1. How did you pick the name Shelia for the main character?
2. In your life, have you ever met a Shelia and a Peter that had never gotten along together?
3. When you were little, did you ever have a hard time swimming, because is in the book Shelia had problems swimming?
4. Were all of the fudge books connected?
5. Do you have a personal connection with all of the characters you were created?
6. Do these characters resemble important figures in your life?
Thank you for allowing me to use your time and good luck on your next book, (If you write another one.)
Hi Judy, Just to say a huge thank you for your fab books, as I had really enjoyed reading them when I was in secondary school in London. My favorite was;- Are you there God? It's me Margaret :o) So it was really nice to read your inspiration behind the book.
Keep up the good work and God Bless you :o)
Dear Ms. Blume,
Some of your story is a little sad. In the book Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing when Fudge eats his brother's turtle upsets me a lot. I want to report that. Can you please explain why this was necessary to the story?
Mrs. Shiver's class
Hello Mrs. Blume,
I am a reading interventionist in Albuquerque, NM. I am reading your Fudge books to my 4th grade reading class. My students want you to know that they LOVE your books.
Thanks for writing about Fudge for us to enjoy!
All of the books I've read by you have been amazing! You do great writing realistic fiction. If you were to write another teen book, it would be awesome if it was similar to Are You There God? It's me, Margaret., but on a more advanced stage. Once again, you're awesome!
Dear Mrs. Blume,
Hi my name is Ryder and I am a huge fan of your books. What inspired you to make the Fudge books?Did you ever see somebody eat a turtle or was that just something you came up with. I have read almost all of the fudge books and every book I just laugh even more.I wish there were more fudge books I can read them all in like a month.
I am at Bridges Charter School.I always wanted to know what order the books went in.My favorite book was double Fudge or tale of a fourth grade nothing. What was the hardest book to write. What book took the longest to write. What is your most recent book you wrote.
What was your favorite book.What was your favorite book you wrote like how hard it was and how long it took. Did any of your books take longer than a few years or were they all pretty short.Did you ever just get mad and want to stop or did you just try to stay calm.
If you made another book about fudge would it take a long time to make it. If you were going to make another book about Fudge would he be like older or still a bit young. What inspired you to make the characters who they are.
What is the oldest book you wrote. When you are writing do ever just think of stuff or have you already planned it out.If you wrote another book what would it be about.When Fudge falls off the monkey bars I would like if he breaks his leg.
In my middle school we are currently doing night of the notables. The person that I chose was one of my favorite female authors. I am hoping that you could help me answer some of the questions on my worksheet. The one I cant find are 6 important events in your life in chronological order. Also maybe your most notable achievement. I hope i can hear from you soon.
Dear Miss Blume,
Hi my name is Asher and I am in 5th grade. I was doing a author study book club in my class and I was in your book club. My favorite book is “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.” It is a fun fast paced book with adventure around every corner. My favorite part is when the stupid little munchkin fudge eats Peter’s turtle “yumm yumm yumm.”
But I have a question why did you have Tootsi walk across Mr. Fargo's canvases? My favorite painting was “baby feet blue!” What are the new books you are going to right? I have a suggestion, Peter and Fudge go to Canada and Fudge’s parents forget him at the airport in Michigan and they are on the opposite side of the country. Their parents are out of their minds with worry. And when they get back to the Michigan Airport, Fudge is not there. Then they get home and Fudge is watching TV with grandma and Toosti. Then Fudge gets in so much trouble his myna bird never stops saying “bad mom, bad mom, bad mom!!!”
I am writing my own book called Animal Tiles. It is a fantasy book it is still being edited.
please do not edit it. I hope you like my book. The main characters are named Jack and Mia Lee. and it about 6 magical animal tiles. I got the idea from a dream!!!
Oh, and one more thing, I LOVE YOU BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (The Fudge books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
HI! My Mom is a president of a bank here in New York and when she was my age she read your books and passed them down to me. I think you should put one of the characters from "are you there God it's me Margaret" in another book I really enjoy reading your book and I hope you write more!
I LOVE your books!!!!!! I cant wait to read more!!
I love your books "Tales of a fourth grade nothing", "Otherwise known as Sheila the great", and, "Superfudge".
Dear ms Blume.
I sent you a message a few months ago before Christmas. And I was telling you about my dyslexic sister who hated reading and read one of your books and now loves reading them. And I want to ask you a few questions:
Are you planning on making books for children (12+)?
When you created 'Are you there god its me Margret' did you ever want to make a book like it again.Or maybe from her best friends point of view?
And last but not least.
What is your recommended book for children 12+?
Thank you for giving up your time and reading this!
From your number one fan in England.
Love from Imaan
I am a Third Grade Teacher at Dewar Elementary School. I was wondering if you participate in Read across America Week in March? If so I was wondering if you could maybe Skype with our Third grade class and read a short book to us. Thank you for taking time to read my message as I know your time is very valuable. Have a great Day!!!!
Hi, Judy Blume!My name is Mae!It is such an honor to write to you!I was just wondering if you can make your own online web and have all your full written books there?!Because I can't seem to find 'Starring Sally J Freedman as herself' anywhere online!Well I hope and dream you can.God bless you Mrs.Blume!

Mrs. Casais's class
Dear Mrs. Blume,
Our second grade class just finished the story "Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing" and they LOVED it!!! They loved when Jenny "made" on the floor and found it very sad when Dribble didn't make it alive. We thank you for these wonderful characters!!
With much respect.... Mrs. Casais's class (Timothy, Jace, Aidan, Dean, Gavin, Nicholas, Mia, and Celine)
When I was 12 I read Are You There God..., and Deenie. Already an avid reader and writer, I was inspired by these books to write my own books that made kids feel less alone. It took me another 40 years (I became a high school guidance counsellor in between), but I finally did it. Orca Book Publishers in Canada has published my first YA novel, Subject to Change, and I would like to send you (Judy) a copy, just to say thank you. I've read many of your books, been influenced by your writing style, and even love your website! I would be so pleased if someone could tell me how to get a copy of my book, and a personal note, to Judy.
Sincerely, Karen Nesbitt

Will you ever write a sequel to "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret"? Great book. I always felt it ended too abruptly. How does Laura Danker's life turn out? All the best to you.

Dear Ms. Blume,
I love your Fudge books. Can you make more?
From your biggest fan, Christian.
When I first read Summer Sisters I was seventeen, and I fell in love, it instantly became my favorite book and I can honestly say, it is still my favorite. I read this book every year (sometimes more than that) and I've just never gotten over it. It's hard to explain exactly what it means to me, I just feel the story so deeply in my heart and I am so very glad that you wrote it. I, like other fans, ponder the ending and the ins and outs of the story and I just wanted to thank you for writing it. No matter how many times I pick it up, it's still magical.
Dear Judy Blume,
Are you still making Judge books? I like your books.
I love your writing
You are my favorite
Hello. I am Gabriella, a senior at Amador High School in Sutter Creek, California. For my AP English class we are required to present a senior project on any topic we would like. My topic is book banning and challenging. I understand that you have experience with this problem. I was hoping that I might be able to interview you for my project so that I can create a better argument as to why books should not be banned. I understand that you are a busy person, and that It may not be possible to have this interview, but I would really enjoy having one. Thank you for writing books!
I loved your story Frecel juce.
