Hi, my name is Gracie. I am 14 years old and a HUGE fan of your books. I absolutely love how relatable they are. A lot of them seem to mimic my own thoughts and feelings. Reading your books has inspired me to write my own and, if you get a chance, I'd love to hear some advice on the publication process, or any other aspect of writing in general. Thank you so much, and have a wonderful day!
Dear Judy Bloom. I’m reading tales of a fourth grade nothing with my class. So far my favorite character is fudge. I like him because he’s like my five year old brother that messes almost everything up. Peter is like me because i’m in fourth grade and i’m nine. I love your books!

Dear Judy Blume,
I love your book so much. I loved when they were at the shoe store and fudge wanted the same shoes as peter so they tricked him. I thought it was funny. I also liked when Mr. Hatcher told fudge to eat it or wear it when they were at burger fever and fudge wiping mashed potatoes on the walls and dumped peas on his head. Every chapter i've read so far was very funny. You are my favorite author i have read about and I love you.
Hi Judy blume i really like your your book tales of a fourth grade nothing because it has great vocabulary and great characters and has a good plot.
Hi, I’m mia, my class is reading one of your book called “ Judy Blume :Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing”.Once I wrote a book that was similar to your book last year, about my sister.
you are one of my favorite authors. I've had read other books but I like yours the best about fourth grade, most books have where they're doing mostly assignments and most take place in the classroom, and barely at home.

Your books are so good! I love Superfuge and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
Dear Judy, I love your books, and sometimes I write my own stories, too. My dream is to be an author someday, just like you! Everyone in my classroom hates reading books, and I'm the only one that likes it. I feel like books are my best friend. They have so much exciting parts that you can't stop reading. I'm 11 years old but I want a head start on becoming an author, any tips?

Dear Judy Blume
Hey!!!!!! My name is Marley, and I am a HUGE fan of your books. I recently started reading your books, and now I'm doing a report on you. So, bye!! Keep writing!!!
Hi, I will always be a huge fan of your books. I love that you write real life things that children can connect to.
I was wondering when "Are You There God" was republished with the curse words changed/revised. I am working on a report for a class I am taking and would love more information on this.
Thank you for your time and help!
can you write a new book?
pleaseeeeeee? I really love all of your fudge books and I would love to read one about tootsie
Hi, my name is Trianna. I have a career project and I want to be an author. So I have been wondering if I could interview you on the phone for my project. Thank you for your time.
Just recently I've been reading your books and I really enjoy reading your books if I'm reading a page and our teacher says that our development time is over I just can't stop reading thank you so much for writing your books.
I took your Masterclass! Loved it. Wrote my first book Pepito's Whiskers: The True Story of a Blind Cat. I was wondering if you could write a review for it!
Hi there, Judy! I understand that you met my mom yesterday, and I just wanted to send a thank you your way. I’d always been an avid reader of your children’s books since I could read, so naturally... I had to have been the happiest girl alive when my mom came home with “Tiger Eyes” in hand. And signed, nonetheless! I can’t thank you enough. It’s amazing having a mom like mine, and equally as amazing having an author like you out there to make people smile.
Hi Judy, I was first introduced to your work back in the fall of 1978, in the fourth grade, when my teacher read "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" to the class, which led to a love for your Fudge series. Unfortunately, besides Tales, I've only read "Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great" and "Superfudge". My enjoyment of those books was one of my inspirations for taking up writing, as well as helping foster my lifelong love of reading. Thank you for giving the world the tales of Peter Warren Hatcher, his friends, and family.
whats up im jared im 19 and i never learned how to read
Hi i am isabella. At my school i am doing a presentation and mine is about you!
Thank you very much for a lifetime of wonderful books.I'm not sure I would have survived adolescence without you.For many of us you were our only teacher regarding puberty and sexuality.I hate the fact that some people are trying to censor your work.If only they knew the enormous impact you have had upon our lives.Keep fighting.
Like so many of your readers I grew up reading your books, and I am now at a point of my life where I am passing on your gift of innovation and fun to my own children. It is an absolute pleasure to listen to my kids talk with such enthusiasm about books which have enriched my own life.
I wanted to share with you a story that involved your book Blubber and incident that happened at my youngest daughter’s school. Chloe, is one of the happiest and easy going kids I have ever known. She has an amazing capacity for love, but I was surprised one day when an email arrived in my inbox from her teacher notifying me that Chloe had written a nasty comment to one of her classmates and, if I believe what Chloe told me, was put up to it by another kid in class. While people have the capacity to be influenced, I feel strongly that one has a responsibility to his/her-self and to be accountable for your actions. So looking for a creative way to drive a lesson home, I looked for a book which dealt with teasing, bullying and accountability...and I came across Blubber. So Chloe was set on the task of read it and writing a report over the long Veteran's Day weekend. She made a valiant start at reading it, as much as a kid looking at a weekend’s worth of being technology-free could, but we ended up listening to the audiobook as we made a trek down to look at a college for my eldest that weekend. I kept expecting to catch her in the review mirror drifting off or distracted by her art pad, but she was riveted to the story. Later as we put together an outline for the report, I was amazed at the morals and parallels she drew from the story on her own. And it caused her to reflect on her actions from the previous weeks.
Thank you. Thank you for your books. In the great mantel of our memories, where life's collection of amazing novels and stories which have shaped us are stored; There your books have had a warm and much loved home. Thank you for the unintentional life lesson that you have helped pass on to my children.
With Grateful Admiration,
i really like your boy otherwise knonw as sheila the great .right im doing a book reapor on it
HI, it's Oli, I just wanted to say that I love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love
Your books especially the ones with "fudge and Peter " so
Dear Ms. Blume: When I was in the fourth grade at Caddie Woodlawn Elementary School in Durand, Wisconsin, we were asked to write a letter to an author. I chose you as I had just finished reading Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing. You were kind enough to respond to my letter, which I still have. Not all of my classmates got a letter back from their chosen author. That was 39 years ago. OI still remember that day when your letter came in the mailbox, but I am now 49.. Thank you from the bottom of that little girl’s heart who grew to an adult who still loves your books. I introduced them to my niece, and she has loved them as well. I still have my original Tales of A Fourth Grade Nothing book from my fourth grade class at Caddie! Cheers to Fudge! Cheers to you Ms. Blume!
I would like to tell you how great of a author you are me and my mother love your books it would be awesome if you wrote back to me or sent me a autograph that would be awesome.
I loved your books as a young girl and I just saw that Are You There God Its Me Margaret will be made into a movie which I can't wait to see. As a 49 year old woman, I am now in the position I was in back when I was a tween and early teen but now its for menopause. I think it would be so funny if Margaret came back to talk about her hot flashes, mood swings and the hormonal breakouts. Just a thought. I would totally buy the book as would most of my friends of the same age.
I was reading Super Fudge to my 8 year son, when I was shocked to read this line: We dumped our worms out on the sidewalk and cut all but one in half (Superfudge Page 59). Yes worms regenerate, but I feel this is not appropriate and cruelty towards animals. Let me know your thoughts.
hey. im a girl who is 14 and having a tough time with life...do u have any books that i could reed so i have advice? love liv
Dear Ms. Blume,
Please make more books and movies of the world of Fudge I really like the books they make me laugh and its like me and my brother I act like Peter and my brother acts like Fudge it's so funny because we act exactly like them. So please keep making more I think I might be able to help you out to if you just email me what ideas you have done already because I am pretty clever and smart so I can come up with some cool good ideas if I can help you of cores.

Dear Judy Blume,
I really like your Fudge books. They are very funny. My favorite of your books is Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. My favorite part is when Fudge ate the turtle? Did you know that I am going to be Fudge? I am going to dress up as him for my school costume party. By the way, are you ever going to write more fudge books after Double Fudge? Again, I really love your Fudge books.
hi judy blume!
i love your books!
Dear Mrs. Blume,
I want to thank you for essentially being one of my most favorite authors during my childhood. Your book, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, was a staple of my childhood. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I re-read that book because of how much I loved it. I also read Blubber and, knowing someone who was severely bullied much like Linda was, it hit close to home. It's incredible that the book was written 44 years ago and still seems so relevant today. That's what makes a true masterpiece; when a work is timeless. I wanted to let you know that I'm an aspiring writer myself and you were one of the earliest influences I had. You weren't afraid to tackle heavy subject matter that many to this day do not dare to tread. You showed me that controversy should be embraced, not rejected. For all of this I thank you Mrs. Blume and wish you nothing but success.
My father Donald passed away on 8/10/2017. In my eulogy, I spoke about how my father and my grandfather were among the first to arrive at the airplane crash at the Orphanage. My dad never spoke about it, but we know from newspaper accounts that they pulled survivors from the wreckage. I'm very proud that my dad and Grandpa were heroes.
This past year I came across a big tub of all my journals from growing up. I had an overwhelming feeling run over me as I read each one word for word. Immediately I knew I had to write a book. I am a visual artist and writing a book has never crossed my mind, but I knew I had to write on the struggles and consequesnces as a child of divorce during my preteen and teenage years. My heart has always turned to mush when talking about those early teenage days. I have written most of my first draft in a "journal" type format and have been trying to decide what genre I fit into exactly. Someone recommended to me your young and impressionable character Margaret and now in my adult years I am reading Are You There God? It's Me Margaret, for the first time. I am thoroughly enjoying it! You inspire me with your honesty! Reading through your website has me believing we were very similar in our beginning stages. I have always been a big dreamer...on ideas and just a space off daydreamer. HA! I get the feeling people think the idea of me writing a book is a waste of time, but I can't help but believe the complete opposite. I have a truckload of confidence in this book and I hope when it is published that it can reach as many teens and adults so that the perspective of a young child of divorce can be spoken, understood, and appreciated. I have many hopes and dreams for this book beyond its words, but I have no idea where to start at getting it out there. What kind of publisher to pursue, etc. I do not have a mentor, connections or knowledge of where to start with this sort of thing.
Thank you for your vibrant books! I am not sure why I did not read your books as a child, but reading them as an adult gives me all the feels.
Dear Ms. Blume,
I hold you in tremendous esteem and I have read all your books - for kids and adult alike. "Wifey" is my number one favorite book of all time. I feel funny telling people this because of the explicit nature of some of the text. But it's not because of the sex scenes that I love the book. Rather it's the brilliant dialogue, and the incredible way in which it captures a time and place in America. The book fascinates me - what it says about women, marriage, racial relations, the suburbs, and the socio-economic and political realities of late sixties to 1970 America. I would say I have the book memorized at this point, and it is always on my nightstand. I find it endlessly thought-provoking but also great fun to read. Thank you for this gem, and all your other works. Summer Sisters is brilliant as well, as are all your children's book. I hope you continue to write new books.
I LIKE YOUR BOOKS I READ KNOWN AS SHEILA THE GREAT ITS SO NICE
/>From my daughter:
I like fudge books and I've read them all. Please continue the story and write about the fudge again.

Dear Ms. Blume,
We have finished the entire Fudge series reading them to our son, who is 5.5 years old. In fact, we convinced him to get some reading time in by reading one paragraph per page. His reading really took a big leap as we went through this series! He is wondering if you'll write another Fudge book?! I think a book from the adult perspectives of Fudge and Peter would be amazing! :-)
