ilove all of your books. i want to read all of our books. and i can because my teacher has them all.i would love to meet you in person.yester day i found a snaping turtle in my yard in front of my sister raven's window.
Ms. Blume. I loved all of your books. From the moment I read Forever in middle school, I was hooked. I backtracked to the younger books and moved forward to the adult books. I too have lots of stories. Maybe one day I wll publish some. You are my inspiration.

What a GREAT website! My fourth graders are enjoying your books! We even got to drink Freckle Juice while we were reading. Next we will read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Thank you for writing such wonderful books!
Dear Mrs. Blume
I really like your fudge books
i am 9 years old and i have been reading and rereading your books since i was 7
i really love your way of writing
thank you for your books
Dear Judy Blume,
Superfudge was the best book I have ever read. My favorite part was when Fudge tried to sell Tootsie. I could really relate to the book because I am the oldest of 4 kids in my family. I want to read all your books now!
OMG I LUV DEENIE! I have a scoliosis brace myself, and it really inspired me!
My name is Mackenzie. I go to --. I am in an enrichment class and I LOVE your books!!!! Can I please ask you just a few questions???
What give you the ideas to write books?
How long have you been writing books for?
When/how old were when you chose to be an author?
Every term our class gets a class book and last term we were rolling on the ground with laughter when we read Tales of a Fouth Grade Nothing!!
PS I used my librarians email, and me and my classmates are huge fans of yours!!!!!
Thank you for your time!!
Loved your books since I was little! You'll always be one of my favorite authors! I'm in the middle of reading "Forever." Never knew about it till I saw your post on FB recently! No matter how old I am, you always manage to hold my interest! Can't wait till you come out with a new book! You should try to make a guest appearance n my area sometime. That would be so cool!
Judy I am now 12 and I have been reading your books since I was 8. They are hilarious, happy and full of excitement! I absolutely love your books and definitely want to red more!
Thank you for your writing advice! Its good to hear it from a published and successful author!
As a teen,I grew up addicted to your books. Now I've finally had the chance to pay homage to them through my cooking blog, with what I call "The Judy Blume of Desserts!" I would be honoured if you took a look. Thank you for your wonderful books and for helping many people through the rocky road that is adolescence. Much love!

i read so many of the fudge book . GOD bless you meow from cat lover
The book 'HERE"S TO YOU RANCHEL ROBINSON' Last part when Jeremy Dragons kissed Ranchel 4 times i loved that part.
Your books were recommended to me by a librarian when I was researching childrenís literature for a college project. That was a long time ago, and since then I have read - and reread - all of your books. One of my favourites has to be Summer Sisters. Iím just about to pass on my copy for others to enjoy, but before doing so, it seemed right to let the author know how much pleasure it gave me.
Thank you Judy! Looking forward to your next book Ö
I graduated with an degree in Literature, and I've never written to (or had the desire to write to) an author. I've read many good books, a number of which have "changed my life"- to use the old cliche. But they've changed it in small, aesthetic ways, where my life is better for having read something poignant and beautiful.
I don't remember many of the details from your books, Ms Blume, and as a young girl I read all of them, multiple times. But I remember how I felt when I read them, and I remember identifying with them, learning from them, and loving them. They changed my life in a real way. They taught me how to be a woman, a feminist, and empathetic human being, and helped shape who I am. I am so grateful to you, to the books you've written, and to your guts and gusto for caring about young women in a real and honest way.
I don't know if I can say the same about any other author or book. Thank you!
My little nine year old friend just attended a play in Ivoryton, CT on "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". Well, I must keep up with her! So, I took the book from our library and read it.
The story was fun, entertaining, funny and almost perfect...except the grammar. Now, I know you and most of your readers will think I am old and stuffy. Yet, as a teacher, I object to sentences that begin with "Me and Jimmy". Yes, I know kids speak that way, but don't we have some sort of responsibility to show them the correct way to speak? Your story gives our children directions in using good manners....why not proper grammar?
My friend's grandmother, who is a librian, agrees. Well, that is two of us. Thanks for listening.

Hi! I just finished summer sisters about a week ago and can't stop thinking about it! I was wondering if you've thought about doing a second book? I loved these girls and their friendship it was so true to real life I hate to see it end :/ thanks meg
I read your books when i was younger. i turned them over to my daughter. Now I'm am writing. My daughter and one other lady have read the one i finished. I have now finished the second one. I just am afraid to look to hard for a publisher, due to the lack of money. Any suggestions?

i'm a big fan of the Fudge books! I made a series of my own books called gummy. It's about a pink gummy bear who goes on adventures. Could you give me some writing tips? Thanks!
Dear Judy, You have been my favourite author from the time I first picked up Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing in Grade 3. (I thought I was advanced, reading about a kid older than me!)Are You There God was how my mother introduced me to the "wondrous" changes in my body, and Blubber hit me right in the heart. I could go on about all of your books (I have read them ALL) but I wanted to just say that this summer, my daughters and step daughter discovered the joy of a summer by the pool and Judy Blume. As I sit on my porch typing, one is reading Blubber, one is reading Sally J and one is reading Then Again Maybe I Won't. I can't get their attention to feed them lunch, and THAT brings a smile to my face and remembrances of days gone by with my mother screaming at the top of her lings to get my attention. Thank you for being part of my childhood, and now, part of my girls' lives. Your words are cherished in our home.
ILOVE YOUR BOOKS I L.O.V.E FRECAL JUICE
The younger me had a list of authors she loved...then the older me returned to these authors to check out their "new" stuff and was a wee bit disappointed. So, out of fear, I never read your adult books. I didn't want my childhood illusions broken. But then someone told me...read "Summer Sisters"...I was like, no way, I love Judy Blume...I can't go there. But I did. I bought it; I started it and read until my kids threatened to call child protective services for neglect.
I am so happy to say...my love affair with your writing continues. My faith is greatness is restored!! Thank you.
im a really big fan.i love you to bits and today when i got one of your books out my mum yes my mum started jumping in the libray.what have you been up to lately?
THANX FOR UR BOOKS THEY ARE GREAT
Dear Judy Blume,
I am in 4th grade and have read all of the the fudge seiris and i loved them all they made me laugh and sometimes cry.I dream of wirting stories and your books really inspire me! Thank-you so so much for inspiring me
I am such a fan of your books. Even my sister collects your books. She added you a message a long time ago.
Just finished reading Smart Women for probably around the 3rd time. I had not picked up the book in about 15 years and it was still as captivating as the first time. It was interesting to read it now as an adult with kids of my own...I can relate to the character's on a whole other level and at times became very frustrated with their choices. Well, I could go on writing my thoughts about your books for pages..I have grown up reading your books - my first chapter book was Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I still have the original copy and recently gave it to my 10 year old daughter to read. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and please another adult novel SOON!!!
pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees write another book about fudge
Hi!i have one of ur novels but dying to read others like "are u there God?its me Margaret" i just moved to Belgium from Tanzania and i was dying to tell u how much i love ur books.Bye!
I have enjoyed perusing your website! I used to read your books when I was an adolescent. I've always had a love for reading and remember that you were one of my favorite authors. Now I am an aspiring author and was asking a family member if they knew of a book agent, she did not, but told me that her grand daughter suggested I contact Judy Blume and find out who is her agent ... I thought how cute! The statement flooded my memory about how I enjoyed reading your books as a pre-teen girl. I'm glad to know you are still writing.
I've sent u a message before but I love ur books and u should make another one with fudge ttyl

I'm reading Are you there God? Its Me, Margaret and I have some of the same issues with my 'bust'.. It makes me feel so self-concious when I see girls with larger ones, thank you for making these characters so relatable on many levels. (I also aspire to be an author someday)
Ms. Judy Blume,
My mom was always trying to get me to read your books. But I didn't for a very long time, because my sister's said they wreen't any good. Then, one day, I finally read one. It was extremely good! I couldn't stop reading. I can't wait until I get my hands on another one. Thank you!!
Hi Judy, you're a big inspration to be, and i thank you soooo much for that. I'm in the seventh grade and i still love your books. I hope you're doing something wonderfully fun!
Dear Mrs. Blume, I've been reading your books since 4th grade..I relate to each and every one of them. I have a very unique, real life story. I've been thinking of how I could go about writing it. It will hit home with many people across the world. It is something that is extremely private, yet I know it will help people deal with this secrete and hopefully help people understand, know it is okay to talk about....So personal I cannot even write about. I'm trying to find someone who can take my story and write a book or even a lifetime movie..I hope you could take a moment to contact me to discuss this story..You inspire me to write...Thank you for all your great and personal books...I'm reading summer sister's as we speak. I can relate to this oh, so well..
hey i just went to a garage sale and the lady that had the garage sale was a teacher and she new my teacher back to the point she had a ton of your books and i got all of them so now im reading superfudge super funny <3
Judy I love your books. My favorite is hello god its me margret.
Write about fudge again. Also I love your books.
I just read "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" to my six year old Andrew Hill, who has a little brother Joshua "Football" Hill. They both have two older sisters, and I think Andrew was feeling kind of left out.
When I pulled out this book, which I hadn't read in years, both Andrew and I started to realize that we can relate to Peter, and Peter's dad.
Our little Football is quite the handful, and he likes going into his siblings room and playing with things. He cannot sit still in the Doctor's office. And taken off, when we weren't watching him.
Needless to say, Andrew and I laughed out loud at the situations Fudge put his brother through! Thanks for reminding us of the humor in family life!
Dear Mrs. Blume,
Hi! I want to thank you for being an inspiration to my mom and I. When I was Ten years old my mom and I went shopping while and we found the book, " Are You There God? It's Me,Margaret." As soon as she saw that book she explained to me how much she had loved that book when she was younger and told me all about it. Next thing I know I have the book (yes I did pay for it first) and as soon as I get home and start to read I fall in love with it just like my mom did. It's been 2 goin' on 3 years since then and I still have that book and read it.
