I cant wait to read your new book.If you are making one. My class read tales of the fourth grade nothing because we are in fourth grade.I hope you can come to our school we will be so happy if you can.How are you today?I am really good.I dance to.
My nine yr. old daughter is really struggling with reading. As a child her age I remembered reading so many of your books and suggested she look at the library for them. I even printed your booklist to bring along. As it turned out, her librarian also read your books as a child (all of them), My daughter Elizabeth's 1st reading was also your 1st book. Thank you for this positive opportunity to guide my daughter through her struggles.
Dear Judy Blume,
I love your Fudge books a lot. When I was reading your books, I couldn’t stop laughing! In Double Fudge, my favorite book, the Howie Hatchers were hysterical! For instance, I liked it when Fudge and Mini talk. I want you to write another Fudge book soon.

My mom wanted me to ask if "Margaret" has gone through menopause yet, she's dying to read that twist! She says Margaret helped her so much during "those times" back then (as she did for many of us), but now it's time for the other end of things. Where is Margaret and how is she dealing with this change?

Dear Judy Blume,Hi Judy!How are you?I have read your book freckle juice.I really liked it.It was very funny but,why did you write freckle juice?do you want freckles? let me know! sincerely,Emma.
I have read all of your books exept for Tales of the fourth grade nothing. And I love them so so could you pls respond???
ps: could you please make more books?
I am 39 now, and throughout the eighties I LOVED your books and I so feel fortunate to have read them. They were poignant, moving and heartfelt, and a cherished possession among my circle of friends - we read them and shared them and could not wait for the next title to be published. Furthermore, your books paved the way to my absolute love of reading, in general.
I do not have children but if I had daughters today, I would hope for them to be able to enjoy your wonderful books.

How did you come up with your books.
Please write back.
I really like your books they are so great my teacher is reading one of your books please write back you the best author in the world please also write more books the world would not do anything with out your books!
I've read your 5 book series on Fudge when I was much younger and oh have I have it so many times! I just loved them. As I grow up I forgotten about my childhood favourite books and also donated them. Now I'm in the middle of finding these books with the same book cover I had. There are so many new versions of the cover and I was wondering if you know where i can find the box set of the fudge series published in the 1980s? It would mean so much if i could buy the same book covers that I had.
Thank you Judy for writing such amazing stories that we can read for a lifetime and pass on to our children.
Looking forward to your response.
First off, I just want to say I love your books! Your books are heartwarming, funny, and overall amazing. When I was little I loved reading the fudge books. My mother and I would even listen to the audiobooks when we travelled. Heck, two years ago when I was 15, we went to Austin and still listened to superfudge. Your books are timeless!
Anyways, the main reason for my message is because I have a question for you. I don't know if anyone's ever suggested this, most likely they have, but have you ever thought about making the fudge series a cartoon? I think the fudge series would be a cute and funny cartoon that kids would love.
I know that you are very busy so I understand that I probably won't get a reply, but by some luck I hope you get the chance to read my message.
i like your book pleas write back
I sort of gave up writing my stories a while back because they didn't seem realistic enough. When I tried to make them seem realistic, they had no plot. Recently, I have seen a new light (no, I didn't die) and have started writing again, only this time, I am writing whatever I like, no matter how absurd it may seem. I felt like I should share this with you, since it feels like you are a fellow writer. Thanks so much for all of the great stories!
hi judy!Thank you so much for writing back so fast.I love to hear you are writing a new book because they are realy good!The books you have writen are so good!I am Looking fored to the new book!Ibet is is going to be realy good!You inspier me alot!thank you so much for writing back. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure you hear this a lot, but I grew up with your books and they've inspired me to tell stories of my own! I am now at USC film school looking to make a career in making young adult/children's movies. Thanks for the inspiration over the years
Hi Judy I love your fudge books and I almost read all of them and I was wondering if you were going to write a new book.by the way my fourth grad class is reading the tales of a fourth grade nothing and I love it
November 7, 2012
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I love your books, especially the Fudge books. My favorite book is Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I love it because Peter Hatcher is in 4th grade and so am I. We have a lot in common. For example, we both have siblings and they both drive us nuts! Also our siblings are both the same age (after Fudge's birthday party). In SuperFudge, they have a baby. We also have a baby. Once I had started the Fudge books, I couldn't stop and finished the whole series in one week! What is your favorite food?
Most importantly, I hope my sister doesn't eat my frog! I hope you are feeling better from Cancer.
Judy: I wrote to you a few years ago about the book "Blubber." That book is more relevant than ever these days, with cases like the suicide of cyber-bullied teen Amanda Todd in Canada.
I also recently bought and read the book "Double-Fudge", though I haven't yet read Fudge-A-Mania. I like how you made the former more modern with references to the Internet, ethnic foods like couscous etc.
Please check out the book "Cancer: Step Outside the Box" by Ty Bollinger. He admits that he is not a physcicians. but he has some good ideas about cancer prevention and treatment IMO.
Thanks, God bless and ttyl.
hi judy!i love your books.i love double fuge!i have one question for you ? do you have any new books coming out or not?the books and you are amasing!the books you have out are realy good!you are a good book writer.
dear mrs. blume,

hi Judy Blume i am reading your books and i am loving them i wish you can come to my house can you? i would love to meet you in person or talk to you on the phone can you give me your phone number ? thanks bye
Hi Judy Blume,I love the book Freckle Juice.
ilove all your books. by the way where is your birthplace its for a project
I am a grade four teacher that has been reading your book "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" aloud to my students for a few years now. I want to say thank you because the students and I get to laugh at some of the comical events and some of my new students become more interested in challenging themselves to read more frequently, and many of them begin choosing some of your other books to add to their independent reading repetoire. Thank you so much!
Just wanted to say how much I loved reading your books as a kid. My all time favourite was Are you there god its me Margaret. Over the years I had lost my copy and am now searching book stores so I can give a copy yo my 10 year old daughter. I know she will love it as much as I did.
i just wanted to know the plot of this book because i am doing a project of my own on books that i like and what is the plot og these stories
I have been reintroduced to your work through my daughters reading of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. My 8 year old reluctant enjoyed the book immensely as part of a Battle of the Books assignment and is now working on Shelia, without it being an assignment! Now that your books are coming back to me, I can't wait to get my 10 year old to read about Margaret.
I was saddened by your last Blog post and heartened by your attitude as you were going through the experience. I wish you the best in your recovery.
i think your books are soooooooo good you should make movies out of them i would love to watch them over and over again!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I love your books! My favorites are Fudge-a-Mania, Super Fudge, and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. If you can respond, please answer these few questions. Where do you get your inspiration from? How do you come up with certain characters and their traits? What do you like most about being an author. Lastly, do you like the editing and revision process? I love your books and my favorite is the Fudge series and I enjoyed it SO MUCH! Keep writing!I'll keep reading!
Dear Judy- I hope you are recovering well from your cancer. I loved your books as a child and have now passed them on to my kids. Currently, my 5th grade son is doing report on censorship- he had to pick a banned book and write a report and read your article on censorship. He chose Blubber and its been an interesting conversation in the house. Thank you for your books- I wish I could put into succinct words how much I love your books and am thrilled they are continuing to be beloved in my home by my kids.
All the best,
I recently re-bought copies of a few of your books, since I loved them as a child and teenager and wanted to re-experience them. To this day, as a 24 year old woman, I simply adore them. Here's To You, Rachel Robinson is definitely a top favorite, but it's so hard to pick just one. The topics and how relatable they are for young girls (and boys!) is awesome. You have truly given excellent perspective to young people experiencing hardships and realities in life. Thank you SO much for sharing your talent. I adore you, Judy!!
Dear Judy Blume,
you are my favoite author and also my mom's favoite.She got me started with you books and I now have read all but 2 or your books.Whats your favorite color?i wish i had more to say but im a slow typer so please resopnd to me...
why dont you ever make a movie about TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE NOTHING,FUDGE-A-MANIA,SUPER FUDGE,and DOUBLE FUDGE?
Dear Ms. Blume,
Hi my name is Jonathan Olsen. I live in Salt Lake City. I’m doing report on you.
I have some questions. How many books have you written? How often do you write per week? Do you have kids or grandkids? How much money do you make per book?
My mom is writing a book. She gets inspiration from things in her own life. What inspired you to write Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing? Are the characters Fudge and Peter based on real people?
In Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, the family reminds me of my friend’s family. My friend’s family has a crazy little brother, a sweet little sister, and my friend is in fourth grade, like me.
I want to read more books by you.
I am a Cherokee/celtic woman doing research for a graduate class in literature and chose you as my author for a banned books topic. I am going to check out some of your books for my daughter and I will read them too! I am writing a book about the moon lodge. I saw you have had some health challenges and would like to share with you that we (American Indians) use paw paw leaves and twigs made into tea with great success in treating challenges similar to yours. Paw paw tea drank on a regular basis also helps prevent ailments! Blessings on your journey and may you be on the beauty in all your endeavors! Ki
Hey =] I Loved your book Forever!!! It was amazing! Do you think you could send me a copy? If you can please email me and i'll give you my address. Thanks! <3
i love your books.

Dear Judy Blume,
My name is Bryan and I live in Fort McMurray, Alberta. I think all of your books are great. There’s just one thing that I bet would make your books beter. Instead of a book about Jimmy Fargo and his life. Write back soon
October 30, 2012
Dear Judy Blume,
I have a few questions for you. Did the boy you know from your friend son eat the turtle or did your son? Why did you make the story based on New York, and not New Jersey? And also did you make the book for your friend? Now I am going to tell you a little bit about myself I live in FORT MCMURRAY. I have a brother named Cole he is three years older than me. I had a lot of fun reading your “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” and some other books you wrote. I like them because there a lot of details and they are very funny. I like the part where he swallowed the turtle and when he lost his front teeth.
