From Freckle Juice, Fudge, Forever to Summer Sisters...knocked the ADD right out of me. Love U and thank you for making me enjoy reading books over and over!!!!!!!!
I immigrated to Canada with my family at age 7 to a small town. When I was in grade 4, our teacher read Tale of a Fourth Grade Nothing to us. I loved it and went on to reading your other books on my own since then. At that time, my English was still a bit shaky but I loved to read. I remember reading your other books such as Sheila the Great, Iggie's House, Tiger Eyes, But Then Again, Maybe I Won't...and I'm sure a few others. Your books were a big part of my somewhat difficult childhood and I just want to say thank you. I have a dream to write children's novels myself but I still have yet to make that dream come true!
(My elementary school years: 60's and 70's)
My 4th grade teacher read us all of your Peter and Fudge books and I remember laughing and crying hysterically!
Now my 8 year old's teacher is having us read a book, for a book report, from my childhood that I think my child would like. Then she wants us to read it together and do a project of some sort to tell others about the book we read.
I immediately thought of the Fudge series and we read the first one together.
My son thought it was so funny (and sad when Fudge eats Dribble) that he read all of the other books also. So much fun!!
Thanks for the memories!
Hey Judy! I was so glad when my teacher told me to read your books!
I Love your books!!!!!!
Have you ever read a book (example) like crispin by AVI and then put the insperation of that book into one of the books you've written? P.S. (not saying you've really read crispin but its really good)

hi i love your books Judy
I'm a third grade teacher. My class is on the fourth "Fudge" book this year and we love them. My students laugh so much, it's hard to get them quiet again! Watch for letters from my students in the near future!
Judy, I loved reading your books when I was a kid and now I get to hear them all over again with my 8 year old son. We have read through 2 of the Fudge books so far and he loves them as much as I did. Thanks for writing such great books! It is so great to share them with him.

and i thought you can help please.
Mrs. Blume, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I fell in love with reading because of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. A little black 4-eyed nerdy housing project latch-key kid who could have gotten into all kinds of trouble in the 1970s read your book and decided instead to just read everything that you wrote and laugh her head off. I crack up every time I tell someone about how I practiced, "I must, I must, I must increase my bust!" in my bedroom. I remember being unable to wait until the library had gotten a copy of Wifey. I didn't know that it was an adult book. I only knew that YOU had written something else for me to read. When my mom spied me reading it, she asked about me reading an adult book. My response was, "it's not an adult book. It's Judy Blume!" As a new career, I now teach 4th graders. I was shocked to discover that although your Fudge series and other titles are everywhere, my favorite read is not! I have to purchase and donate a copy or three to our library. Stay a Blessing to young readers.
Ms. Blume, I just finished reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing to my 8-year-old son. Your book charmed me all over again, just as it did when I read it as a child, 30 years ago! It's amazing how timeless it is. You captured the perspective of a young boy brilliantly.
As a child, I felt understood reading your work. As an adult, I see that your ability to relate to children is a rare gift. Thanks for your contribution to children's literature!

It's me again. I think you should write a book about a cowgirl and cowboy on a ranch who don't know eachother then later, fall in love. I would definitly read that. Where is your hometown? Who is your favorite singer? Mine is Taylor Swift, Tio Cruz, and Adel. What kind of music do you like? Today we had trash clean up day around our school. It was so fun! My class of 16 got 12 semi trucks to honk at us! Our teacher just laughed like crazy. I won a drawing contest for arbor day. I get to plant a plum tree. What is your favorite book that you wrote?
Your curious fan
I want more Fudge books! Here's a new one: Double the Sheila
Story: Sheila, Betsy and Mouse all go back on cooties and they must try and find a way to give up on them. A sequel to "Otherwise Known As Sheila The Great" and includes Sheila's antics (and Fudge's zany antics, as well) from "Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing", Sheila, Mouse and Betsy try to stop being "cootie-ful"!
It's me again, I just waanted to know your writing progress. My homework is due tommorow and I can't find your writing proggress anywere on your websit.I wish you luck

Dear Judy Blume,
Why did you become a writer?
I mean you are a GREAT writer,but I just have to know!I still LOVE your books.Fudge is my favorite character.He is so cute!One more thing I just got to know,What year did you become a writer?
Dear Judy Blume,
I am your biggest fan I am reading your book tales of a fourth grade nothing, and I love it!!!!!.You are the funniest wrighter in history well I think so.Though i am only on the sixth chapter it is really funny I mean how could you fit so many dteails is so little chapters.I hope when i get older i will get to read more of your hillarious books.When Fudge dumped a whole bowl of peas over his head now that was funny.well i should not take up all of your time reading this letter because you probably have a lot more.

I'm a graduate student earning my master's in library science. I'm often asked why I've chosen to pursue that degree, because many people think that libraries are quickly becoming obsolete. What's your opinion on libraries today, and how do you see the library of the future? Also, Iím just curious - do you own an e-reader?
Do you have other freckle juice books too?
When I was a girl, my grandmother filled my bookshelves with your books, along with other great writers like Dahl and Lewis. I didn't know it then, but reading these books planted the seeds (slow growing) for me becoming and being a writer. I have just finished my first novel and recently began the agent query path. Today, I looked you up to read about your story as a writer and found your encouraging words. Your story and success as a writer is inspiring. I am most inspired by what you wrote about "writing from deep inside because you have to." I have not fallen in love with revision work, but I'm going to give falling in love with it a chance, especially reading aloud...thank you.
I just sent Suzanne Gluck a query because anyone who knows your work will hear your influence on mine. Maybe she'll bite??? My Delfina is much like your Margaret. Thank you for taking the time to post here. Once again, 30 years later, you've made a difference for me.
dear mrs judy blume my bday is coming up on may 30 i just want to tell you U ROCK AND I LOVE ALL YOUR BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOUR #1 FAN
