i love your book judy blume
I love your Fudge series! Because you get millions of letters saying "I want another Fudge book" I think readers have to help you with making ideas for the book rather then just saying they want another book. I've been stuck with an idea for the new book and so here it comes:
Peter is older and in one year he's going to college. Fudge is annoying in a different way (no tantrums, whining or stuff like that). Melissa moves out of Jimmy Fargo's old apartment and a new girl moves in there. Peter falls in love with her. The only person he can tell about that is (now Tamara) Tootsie The story could also have parts from the girls perspective. The name of the new book could be: A quirky love story with my brother Fudge.
You don't have to respond or even look at this; I just feel good that I got mt ideas out.
Hi, we're one of your biggest fans. Skyler, Kayla, Maniyah, and Quan. We're writing a book report on you, in school. We love your Fudge books. Can you make more, please!? Are you and George still married? We all say Bye!!
Please consider writing a novel with the main character with the math learning difference of discalculia. I know reading is important: I am a writer, past teacher, and librarian. Failure is especially devastating when a child or young person doesn't understand why. I know I didn't.
I love all the books especially Just As Long As Were Together!
Im Doing A Famous Author Project On You && I Really Like Your Books.!(:
Thank you so much for your message back about the movie and you writing a new book... To be honest with you I didn't think you'd send back, I really didn't, but I was so pleased when I found a message in my inbox on hotmail. Please reply to my comment again,
(that is if you have the time) because if you do I will be so happy!!!
BTW I am loving your books! Its going to be my birthday tomorrow so I'm using some of my birthday money to buy MORE of your BRILL books!
why did you become a writer
I just wanted to let you know that "Then Again, Maybe I Won't" was my favorite book for the duration of middle school, and I read almost a book a week, so that's saying a lot.
I re-read it as an adult recently, and I completely understand why I liked it so much. It was a breath of fresh air in a sea of a bunch of either fantasy or sports books, or books that tried really hard to drive home a "message," none of which particularly interested me. It dealt with real emotions in a non-condescending way, and I really appreciated that. To be honest, I was amazed when I eventually found out the author was a female (It's not like your name was hidden, I just never thought about it.) I just identified with it so much, it was weird that a "girl" (middle school me put the quotes around that) described my emotions so perfectly.
I mainly just wanted to send this because I see your name all over the place, but I never hear anything about "Then Again, Maybe I Won't." I just wanted to let you know that that particular book means a whole lot to someone out there.
I like your book they are cool and funny
My special ed class of seventh and eighth grade students loved responding to what we read each day in Superfudge. They wrote about their own experiences of (not) welcoming a new baby, running away from home (even if it was only to the next door neighbor) and the trials and adventures of life with siblings. They laughed a lot at Fudge and Tootsie but also laughed as they shared their own experiences.
I am an after school teacher.. I have been reading the fudge books everyday to my students. and now the entire class is hooked! it's so cute.. you should see how half of them now own the collection and they all enjoy reading your books during silent reading time.. My elementary teacher used to read them to me, now I read them to my students, and I get to do Fudge's voice, just like my teacher used to.. Thanks alot! we're big fans!
you are my favorite auther.I have read two of your books. I have
read ARE YOU THERE GOD ITS ME MARGRET and BLUBBER. I am reading the book JUST AS LONG AS WE 'RE TOGETHER. Thankyou for writng the books. P.S i wish i hade your hair style.

i love ur books especially superfudge it is my fav.
continue the good work
Hi Judy my teacher read all the fuge books and I'm wondering if your going to write another one because I love the fuge books so could you please write another one
Wish you would write a sequel to "Are you there God...". I'd love to see Margaret in her 40's and how her life has evolved...
Judy Blume has made me who I am, seriously. I wouldn't be the fluent writer I am today with Judy!
Judy Blume you are one of my favorite authors! I started reading the fudge books and im hooked! Thank you for all of your wonderful writing!
Have been a fan for so many years, just felt the urge to write and tell you. Wifey is my favorite book of all time. I see myself (as I'm sure so many other women do) on every page. I laugh when I re-read it. So real, so funny, so sad, so perfectly written. Thank you!!!!
I had no idea that you existed until today! But then again I was Roman Catholic (you know - That sex thing :-)) and joined the Navy at 17 and basically lived overseas for a number of years. Not to mention that I am male!!
Your books and compassion towards young girls and women about their sexuality and maturing, is in my estimate "Outstanding"! I had the pleasure to be on the USS Vulcan (AR5) in Norfolk, Va. in 1977 until 1979. During this time I was a senior enlisted guy and happened to be on a ship that was the "test bed" (no pun intended) for women crew members. WOW! What an experience. The "Navy" said that nothing would change :-) - as you can imagine that lie created all kinds of problems. The "older" male sailors, by a large majority, did not take the transition well.
63 enlisted women (all E5 and below) and two Ensigns were initially assigned. As you can again imagine, there are numerous stories to be told about those first few years. Some humorous, most not!
Your knowledge and the fortitude to write honestly in the face of adversity are the tenants of strength I have followed throughout my life. It is not often enough to find a like soul in this short time we have.
This male appreciates the effort, honesty and humor you consistently bring to this table of life.
Hopefully, future young girls will be able to openly devour the stories you have brought to light. Those 65 individuals picked to report aboard the USS Vulcan in 1978 had no idea of the many challenges before them, their sex was without a doubt, the most challenging. As a Chief Petty Officer, (1 of 84 onboard) I was one of the few that didn't dismiss them as "superfluous". There are a few reasons for that, and some were, and still are, life changing experiences.

Dear Judy Blume,
You are my favorite author. I very much enjoy every book I read of your`s. My favorite book is Are You There God, It`s Me Margaret. I thinking maybe you should talk to some movie producers and create a movie out of the book. This is once again just a suggestion.
Your Biggest Fan,
Ava P.S. Please try to get back to me!

Dear Judy - What you've shared in your website has added fuel to my newly-emerging passion for writing.
I just finished reading "It's Not the End of the World." It's so from-the-heart and true-to-life, it made me cry in places and then laugh many times where you expressed Karen's take on the world around her. What's more, I quickly got so wrapped up in the story, I forgot I'm a senior citizen who started out reading it to learn more about writing mechanics and style. I couldn't learn more about writing from a full formal course. Thank you.
What Kinda of jobs does/did you Hold?
Judy Blume I love your books!!!!!!!!! Especially fudge - a - mania
Hi Judy Blume i love your books. Your my Favorite author. you inspered me to write and my favorite series of all times is the fudge series.i think you should write another. i live i new jersey too. i have most of your books. please get back and p.sim your biggest fan.
A Devoted Fan
I enjoyed your interview on PBS today with Tavis Smiley. I wanted to tell you that "Wifey" is an absolute scream! I have read it several times over the years, and have shared it with many of my friends.
I would like to thank you for your stories.
As a child in school reading was very difficult for me. I had a tutor who read all my books to me so that I could do the reports that would be due after reading. This continued through High school. When I went to community college the college adviser and I were talking and he notified me that I have dyslexia and that was why I was having such a difficult time with my classes.
I managed to complete 2 and a half years of
Pre-Nursing liberal arts classes while I waited for an opening in the Nursing program when I was hired at a local hospital as a Nurses Aide. They offered on the job training and certification. I decided at that time that I'd quit college and see if in fact I wanted to make Nursing my career.
Now at the age of 47 I remembered my school friend reading your book "FOREVER" to me. I chose to look you up on the internet. I printed out the list of your books, I then started collecting all your books in order to read them.
I have now read almost half of your books starting with "Freckle Juice" only because I haven't found the rest yet; To teach myself to read better. Your books have made it fun to read, I just hope that I'll be able to find them all!
I wanted you to know how much your books have helped me. They are making me feel a lot more confident in reading and understanding what I have read.
My husband has been a big help also, He is patient enough to let me tell him about the stories. This helps to show that I not only read the books but that I am understanding and remembering what I read. This has been a problem in the past.
He has also been telling me how proud he is that I am reading at all. Not to mention remembering what I have read.
hi judy i love all the fudge books!! they are all so good and funny and i love sheila. she is so funny. keep up the awesume books. i also have a question. are you making anymore fudge books they are so good
Judy I love your Fudge books...are you making more? Also,I would like to write a letter to you,writen by hand.If you can do this please send it to my email...TY

"double fudge" but i can not wait to get them! im your number 1 fan and will always be! when im done reading your fudge books im going to read some of your other books intill i have all of then! p.s my name is prounounced meera!
you are a great writer
I have been a faithful fan since I was about six years old. I find your writing timeless and certainly ever-so-helpful for someone who grew up in a strict Catholic household. Needless to say, my favorite book growing up was "Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself." "Tiger Eyes" was also a personal favorite as a teen studying Spanish, in addition to learning how it felt to came from a broken family as mine was and to this day still intact. As an adult "Summer Sisters" hit an especially difficult yet pleasing chord with me. Being born in the seventies, this book awoke in me feelings/memories I hadn't recognized in years and certainly hadn't validated maybe ever. Wow is all sometimes I can say for the range of emotions you have elicited from me as a child as well as a grown woman. I have read "Summer Sisters" more times than I know, yet every time I feel the newness of the yearning and pain "Vix" goes through with each year growing up. At the same time, I recognize "Caitlin" in myself as well as numerous friends. I find your books so absolutely relevant regardless of time period to children/young adults/adults as it is truly timeless in the core stories. As a fan of all of your books, I sincerely hope you continue to write new books for all ages, as your material is timeless and absolutely accessible to all ages. I thank you for all of your hard work and for your magnificent contribution to contemporary literature, American and subsequent translations.
Always looking forward to your next chapter...much love.

I love all the Fudge books.
They are my favorite series.
Hi Judy its Jack. I wanted to tell you that my birthday was yesterday and that I got another idea. Here it is. In any part of the book you can make Peter mad and argue with fudge like Peter could say that he doesn't want fudge to call him pete or Peter could tell fudge that he can't use his stupid fudge bucks or you can do both thats all I have to say bye
P.S. comment back

Hey Judy, i am a fan of your writing & i just wanted to know if you could answer a few questions that i have for my children's literature class. 1) What do you try to convey in your stories? 2)From where do your ideas come from? 3)Why do you write?
You really changed my view on life. Thank you!
Dear Judy Blume,
I was assingned to do a project about one author.I chose you.The only problem is that I don't know how you became a writer. How you did all of you'r drafting. I wonder how you got all of your ideas. I also dont know how long it all took you to finish a book step by step. If you get this email soon then please write back.
Hi, Judy. My name is Madison and me and my class are writing to our favorite authors. And guess what? I picked you! So you should be expecting a letter from me any tim now!
PS: Please give me your Fan Mailing address.
I LOVE ALL YOUR BOOK YO NUMBER ONE FAN DAYCHA
I just finished reading Tales of Fourth Grade Nothing with my grade 3/4 class and they absolutely loved it. One of their assignments was to write you a letter and to tell you one of their own ideas for a sequel to the book. They also designed a cover for their book. I am going to send them all to the address on this webpage and I really hope that you get to look at some of them. The kids were ECSTATIC when I told them I was actually going to send them. I am a big believer in doing things in school for a purpose so sending the letters felt like the right thing to do. Thanks again for writing such a great book. It has turned non-readers into eager readers. From Canada, Lillie
Hi Judy, I still remember hearing my 4th grade teacher read "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" I was hooked. Your books are one of the best parts of my childhood memories. Now, I teach 2 nd grade and love to read your books aloud. My daughter is in 3rd and chose to be you at an author's wax museum activity. Our 11 year old black lab is named Fudge after my favorite literary character. We are big fans!
Words can't even describe how great of an author you are. Every time I read one of your books it makes me smile because, I'm sure you have fun while doing your job, and I have a great time reading your books. My favorite one is, " are you there god, it's me Margaret". It's just great because all of your books have real meaning to them and they are things that happen in life. I know I have already said this but you truly are the best author yet. I have noticed how people are making suggestions but not me because your books are great! I look forward to some more........thank you for taking your time for each and every one of us to creat master pieces! You are awesome.....keep up the great work!
P.S. I am your #1 fan.......you go girl!
i love your books i read almost all of the fudge book thatis why you are my fav. auother
