You may not remember me, but my name is Caryl and my 9-year-old son, Tristan, died 5 years ago. You were kind enough to send "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" (Tristan's favorite book) to all of his classmates to remember him by. We all love you and your books and are praying for your health and recovery. Please add an update to your blog when you can to let us know how you are doing. You are, and always have been, such an inspiration to me and to the tons of other fans you have. Blessings to you!
Hi Judy, I just wanna say that I love your books. My mum was telling me how when she was 11 she read all your books. so she brought me one of your books, so I sat down and read it and when I read its I was mind blown. so I brought all your books and sat down and read them and i just kept reading them over and over and I was not bored. I perticually love fudge, and are you there god it's me Margaret. I can not wait until you bring more mind blowing books just like the ones you have published. Your subjects are really fascinating especially when your worried about stuff you can't talk to any one not even your friends. I also am considering being a writer my self and you have gave me some thoughts and good ideas, so in a few years when we are great friends I will be a writer and we will be texting each other on you blog. Thank you so much for your thought.
My 1st story/chapter book I ever read was Are you there god,it's me margaret.It started my love of reading,your books & others.I got my 15yo son reading your books too.Because of you I always wanted to write books.If I ever do,my 1st novel will be dedicated to you,my inspiration. forever your fan,michele.
Judy, I am embarrassed to say that I have never read any of your books; however, as a Middle School teacher in Canada, I know how much of a positive impact that your books have had on students. I attempted my first fantasy novel for young adults last May and I seem to love to write as much as you. Thanks for your contribution to literature.
I just wanted to let you know how much I love your books. My mom showed them to me and now I'm hooked, I've read every one I've found and I'm always looking for once I haven't read. I don't think I could chose a favorite but I love Tiger Eyes, Deenie, and Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herslef.
You write about such great subjects, many that a lot of kids worry about and can't confront them.
I plan on becoming a writer myself so you a big influence to me. Thanks so much.

I love Judy Blume. At our school, we have to do a living author report and out of all authors, I picked her. She is so awesome and I hope she writes more books so i can read them......... LOVE JUDY BLUME
Hi Ms. Blume!
I know you have so many letters to read. I really appreciate it if you are ACTUALLY reading this right now! You are the reason I began writing in the first place! And I love it so much! I've always thought up little stories in my head and getting them down onto paper is amazing! If maybe you could read one of my stories some time... Maybe give me some feedback...that would be GREAT! Though I totally understand it if you are too busy! Thanks you so much, Ms. Blume! I really hope you have read this!
When my best friend since 6th grade was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2011, at the age of 37, I went into a Judy Blume regression reading frenzy, wishing to recapture those days when we were so innocent, but outgrowing it! Your books allowed us to talk about all of the changes and desires we were encountering while letting us know that we were not the only ones...from Margaret, to Forever, to Wifey...you were with us all the way. My best friend has been successfully treated for her breast cancer, and my mother has been recently diagnosed. I turn to you again, but alas, no newly published books! So I read your blog, and am met with the story of your own battle with the Big "C". Just like everything else, you deal with the subject with realism, heart, and humor. I am sorry that you had to go through this, but am convinced that God put you on this earth so that none of us "girls" would ever go through the tough stuff alone. You have been an inspiration and a comfort to me throughout my whole life, and I want you to know that my prayers are with you, and I am grateful for your courage and your work!
My class has been reading "Tales of a 4th grade nothing". I LOVE Fudge. I can't believe he lost his teeth and cut off his hair. He messes up a lot like the project they were doing,but he is still the most funny boy ever!!!!!
I am writing a report on my top favorite authors and I chose you to write about. Is there any information that you could give me on your writing experiences through out your ife?
Hi Judy, I have read alllll of your books. I even read the interviews in the back. How do you come up with all of these ideas? Your Halarious world of Fudge is awesome. Your a really good writer. Hope to here from you soon.
I was reading "Are you there God, its me Margaret" in the 90s while it was recess and a teacher tried to stop me and she started talking about that this book is inappropriate but i thought that was wrong because books give you knowledge and what book gives you bad ideas? none. So i say that that book was great. My daughter Kristi who is the only girl in the family started reading Super fudge, Freckle juice and blubbler loves the books and she says buy more of Judy Blume like grandma did for you.
I can't stop her. She's buying 5 books a day and 3 of them are written by you. So i say Write more Books!
Do you have any plans to write more Pain and the Great Ones books? I really like them.
i luv your book fudgeamania!!!!! its soooooo funnnnny.
I just wanted to add that when you read your books I remember that I've sometimes had the same feelings.Like most children's authors,you reeeeeally know kids.You also inspired me to write my own book.
I love all of your books and I think that you are one of the greatest authors of all time!!!!
I absolutely love your books. My children are readers now thanks to you. It all started thirty some years ago when my teacher read out loud Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing and I loved it so much I read it to my nieces, my older children and now I am reading the series to my youngest child. It warms my heart when my older children hear us reading and come in my sons room to listen and talk about when we read it years ago.
hi judy i wanted to tell you i have a new email account and i have 2 other things to tell you. i got a new ipod around the middle of December and i got another idea for the fudge books. this time its about the title of the new book if you make it. i need to know the main idea of the book then i'll give you some ideas. if i don't know the main idea, then i can't think of a title. thats all
Hi, Judy. I love all your books. I was really looking forward to watching Tiger Eyes in the theatres, and I was disappointed when it wasn't released into theatres. Is there any place where I can watch it? Like, is it going to be on a DVD soon? I live in Canada, so I don't think Tiger Eyes will be screening anywhere here. Also, do you have an idea when your new book it going to be out? It's been a really long time since you've announced the news and I'm really looking forward to it, but I don't think I can wait any longer!

I'm writing a essay for English on censorship and the banning of books. I always enjoyed reading your books when I was younger (I recall "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" being my favorite)so imagine my surprise to learn how one of my favorite authors had been challenged so many times!
I have found your website to be a great resource and want to thank you for all of your hard work as both a author and as an inspiration for young readers everywhere.

Your books were a very memorable part of my elementary years. I have fond memories reading them in third grade after we read the original Fudge book as a class, and our school library knew to be very well stocked on your many awesome books. I have great nostalgia for these books, and I still remember them very distinctively, even after almost ten years (my favorites were the Fudge books and Frecklejuice)! Thank you so much for being a part of my childhood!
I enjoyed your books when I was a child, I want to suggests them to my neice. She is 10. Your website doesn't list age groups or grade levels. Which books do you suggest?
Did Judy have any other jobs than writing?
