I grew up reading Judy Blume. By the time I was in fifth grade, I had read all of her children books and began reading her adult novels. I was in class when I stumbled upon Ralph in Forever. My teacher must have noticed my face turning so many shades of red because she walked up behind me, spotting the book I had hidden inside the cover of my science textbook. I got in big trouble, but I couldnít wait to go home and keep reading. I think my reading level went up considerably that year. Judy Blume didnít just make me a reader; she made me a writer. Women like Judy Blume have been a powerful influence on
todayís women writers. I want to thank her for being such an encouraging force in my life.
Growing up, I really didn't have many friends and Judy Blume books became a huge part of my life. Summers were spent in my room or on a lawn chair in the yard, curled up with one of your many treasures. Thank you Judy, for giving me 'friends' like Margaret, Winnie, Sheila, Peter, and especially Sally.
Dear Judy:I had writen to you before.Remember me?I love all your books. But yesterday I descovered Its not the end of the world.I loved it! I am already in the 9th chapter! But I have something to tell you. In school se had to make a project of someone we admire. I...chose...YOU!! What do you think?! Please writeb
Dear Judy Blume,
You are one of my absolute favorite authors!!! Ihave read most of your books and I love them all.
The book Tiger Eyes made me cry and laugh. My 5th
grade teacher said that a good story would be able to make someones feelings jump out of them. You really inspired me. I wish I could meet you some day. I think you really know how kids think and your books are outstanding. If I could, I'd give you all the book awards in the world. Thank you for everything!!!
I love Judy Bloom's books so much! Especially Are You There God? It's me, Margaret, Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself, and Deenie. I just can't put her books down!
Thank you Judy for your generous thoughts and comments for writers and others on this website.
I love your books. I have one request can I have your email please. Anyway I love the cover on your website. My favorite book is double fudge. My mom and me laughed and enjoyed your book.
I couldn't help but notice the beaming smile in all of your beautiful family photographs. It appears you've chosen the correct path in life, followed your heart and live your dream. It's very inspiring to me, for I wish to become a published author, and I'm attempting the confidence to go for it. Thank you for sharing your writing tips! I will certainly take the advice of being determined and to never stop trying.
I read "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" in the sixth grade and I've been hooked on reading ever since. Thank you for sharing your craft with the world. It means more than you know.
i love your books. I have just finished Deenie. I have read all of your books.

You are my all time favourite author. You inspired me to write my own book. I'm calling it " In the Middle" Its about a girl who's a middle child and deals with the ups and downs. I love you!
Thank you so much for writing all of your books. From Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing to Wifey, you have helped me understand who I am. I am forever greatful .
I am a big fan of your books. I just love love love love love Just As Long As We're Together... Its Not The End Of The World is also wonderful... Are You There God? It's Me Margaret is also great. One request, please write sequel to Here's To You Rachel Robinson... about Alison. Love, Brishti.
your books are amazing!I love all of them but Forever is my favorite!You understand teenagers and that makes me want to read your books even more!
I am reading Are You There, God? to my 10-year-old daughter. It's the first time for both of us. I was forbidden from reading it a her age because my mother thought it was too racy. I remember how jealous I was that the other girls in my class could read it. It felt like I was barred from a secret, special club. So it is with great delight that I can share it with my daughter, and that it gives us a vehicle to discuss the things that seize the minds of prepubescent girls everywhere: bras, breast size, boys, first periods, fitting in. Thank you so much for writing it.
I randomly decided to search you out on Wikipedia! Yay. Thank you for all of the books that I and many of the older generations, my peers , and the upcoming ones have loved!!

The pain and the great one
Hi Judy! I moved to the U.S. from Mexico when I was just 11 years old. "Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing" was the first American Literature book I ever read (without any help at least).
I was so proud to finally be reading English that I continued to read throughout all your Fudge-Collection. Your books taught me that I was very capable of immersing myself in this amazing culture and today I am an English major and aspiring children book writer
Any tips? Thanks so much for your help throughout the years!
I have read ALL of your books and I read them every day. My favourite is, " Just as long as we're together " and " Tiger Eyes ". It would be cool if there was another book for one of them! Thanks!
I like the Auntie Whoever in Blubber who is an organic food freak. Where did you get the idea for her? That part was so cool. Were there many people in 1974 into organic food? I like how she said she'd been eating organic for six months and never felt better. I didn't know people know about that stuff back then!
I have just read the pain and the great one at school and i loved it. I am going to get the full collection because they are so awesome. What's your favourite book that you have written?
When I was a kid in the 1980s I wanted to grow up to be Judy Blume. My best friend told me that was ridiculous and that I would never be a writer. She was right, sort of. I turned left at a forked road and became a graphic designer, but I channeled my love of books into a career in publishing. I worked for many years at Chronicle Books and am now the creative director at Storey Publishing. A friend of mine posted something about you on facebook, and with a rush of memories, I was moved to let you know that I wrote my first book, which will release in January 2013. It is a beginner's guide to beekeeping, rather than a novel, but it suits me quite well and I feel that a lifelong goal has been fulfilled. I thank you for being an inspiration.
All best, Alethea

Hey Judy its me Jack I got a fudge book idea its brilient ( I don't know how to spell it if its wrong ) I really want peter to kick fudges butt and I mean it but for a good reason and I say its because fudge kicks peter in the spot between the legs I would love it and it ends up in a big fight because everyone try to stop the fight but they got so mad that fudge didn't care and fought all of them he was that mad and then the fight starts not directly at fudge and not a team fight but a random battle thats all I want to have in the book that is the best and you'll be the greatest auther to me for a long time and I mean a long time thanks and hope you do it bye
