Thank you, thank you for all your wonderful notes. I only wish I could respond to each of you personally.

Hey,
15-20 years ago, I was asked to give a presentation about what I wanted to be when I grow up, or someone who has inspired me. I chose you and my mom wrote to you and you wrote me back . You even named a character after me in Double Fudge. I have finished college now and I went to school for science, but I still want to be an author ďwhen I grow upĒ. I recently went to thank my writing mentor, an learned he had passed from cancer. I wanted to make sure I got the chance to tell you how much your writing inspires me and how much your interactions have meant to me after all this time. Thank you for taking the time to make my dreams come true. Youíre such a rare breed in a world that no longer values genuine connections. Thank you for taking the time to enrich my life and inspire me. Iím finally getting serious about writing again and I hope we can still be pen pals. <3

Greetings from the Bahamas! I just recently read Summer Sisters and I was reminded of how much I love your work! I loved the Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing Series, Tiger Eyes, Deeney! I thank God for you - you provided me and many of my friends with so many good loves, laughs, and identifiable experiences through your books! Now I am sharing those same experiences with my children who are finally old enough to enjoy some of the titles that I did when I was there age. Thank you so much Judy! You are truly a gifted writer. Also, if ever there were a part two to summer sisters, I think the world would enjoy it! Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

Dear Ms. Blume,

My class and I wanted to write you to tell you how much we have enjoyed your stories this year. I usually start the year off with "tails of a forth grade nothing" but, that wasn't enough for my class. They begged me to keep reading the rest of the series. Every time I finish a book, they want to read it during independent reading. I personally wanted to thank you for being such a great author and making my students love reading. We know you live close by in NYC. We would love if you would come by to meet us. We are just a quick drive over the river.

Thank you so much!

Dear Mrs. Blume,
It has been an honor and a privilege to read your books over the years.... But the biggest privilege of all all is watching my kids enjoy them as much as I have... Iím so excited and happy that they feel the same love as I did when I was a child reading and getting engrossed in your stories .. Wanna laugh??? I find now Iím re-reading them again; I find it more humorous than when I was a child... I see some of your books are autographed, I would love to meet you at your next book signing. Iím a stay at home mom and I have so many great ideas too.. Anyway, long story short.. Iím going on 47 and Iím in love with your amazing books even more now!!!
Just thought that youíd get a kick out of my story..
You have gotten me laughing through a childhood that unfortunately didnít have a lot of laughs..
With Love and Admiration,

Dear Judy,

I may be late to the party. I've read none of your books. It's a shame. I learned about your writing and work through the lessons in Masterclass. And may I admit that you have a fan in me. I loved hearing your perspectives and your candid admissions of encountering failures and discovering characters, stories, and determination. I can't wait to begin reading all your books. I may have missed something in my childhood. But I am sure I have something to keep me entertained for the rest of my life.

Sending you my love and more exciting vibes for your book store.

My name is Chance. I was wondering if the snail mail address was a good address for fan mail. I have read all of the books. I started in elementary school and just finished the most recent one after a 6 year hiatus from reading. I stopped reading after elementary school and I wish I didn't. There has been a lot of great books published since then. I am catching up though! Thank you for reading.

My best to you and yours,

Hello Ms. Blume,

My name is Michelle Salermo and I am a steward of a Little Free Library in the Elmora Hills section of Elizabeth, NJ.

My husband and I are both teachers in Elizabeth and we began this Little Free Library in order promote literacy in our community.

So far the Library has been stocked with books that have been donated from community members. It has become so popular that we are adding a second box soon and we even added a bookshelf inside our community center. For the book boxes my husband and I repurposed old newspaper dispenser.

I would like to know if it is possible for you to donate some of your books to add to our Free Little Library. It would be amazing to have some titles from someone as famous as you who grew up in this city.

I wanted to say thank you. You have been my wife's favorite author her whole life and she was speechless when she got to meet you last year when you came to Case Western Reserve and signed her copies of your books for her.

I wanted to do something special for her on her 40th birthday coming this spring. As I am here typing, I can see on your post you are extremely busy with your new book. So I am not sure if you are touring at all close to Ohio so I could come and get another book or something signed by you with maybe a happy 40th in it. If you are and maybe your agent could email me dates, I would be extremely happy to be able to bring again to see you.

I am just grateful for you reading this and again wanted to say thank you for writing what you wanted and not what society said you should. After going with my wife and listening to you, I am a fan. Thank you again.

From a new fan and married to a life long fan.

Dear Judy Blume,
I have read a lot of your books now and I have loved them all. My favourite so far is ďItís Not the End of The WorldĒ because it shows how to, even if something awful has happened, never give up on trying to make things right again. What is your favourite book which you have written and why?
If I was wanting to be an author when I grow up, what advice would you give me? I have entered three times into the 500 Word competition, however never got past the first round, which actually made me quite upset and annoyed. If you re not familiar with the 500 Word competition, it is where a lot of children any age writes a story about anything they want; however, it has to be no less or now more than 500 words. What advice can you give me if I was to enter the competition again?
I have read five of your books: Blubber, Iggies house, Are you there God? Itís me Margret, Itís not the end of the world and Deenie and I have enjoyed all of them thoroughly. The book that I am currently reading written by you isĒ Then Again, Maybe I WonítĒ and so far, I am really highly rate it. Are you thinking about or writing any books at the moment?
I would really appreciate it if you responded to my letter because I would love to know the answers to the questions I have asked you. Thankyou for taking the time to read this letter.
Yours sincerely,
Olivia

Dear Judy,
I am a 42 year old English teacher in Melbourne, Australia. I spent my teenage years devouring your books, and it brings me immense joy to now share them with my own two sons, as well as the classes I teach.
I must tell you an incredible story: my son, Benjamin, spent the summer with his best friend, Gracie at our beach house. As she was swimming one day, he noticed one shoulder seemed higher than the other. Having read (and loved) 'Deenie', Ben suggested to Gracie that she may have scoliosis.
Her parents have since taken her to the doctor, and specialists, and yes, our dear Gracie does have scoliosis and is about to undergo surgery to correct this.
Whilst it is obviously distressing for Gracie and her family, we are all so grateful that Ben knew what to look for thanks to YOUR book.
The power of literature, the power of great stories; you have given so much to your readers over the generations, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hello Judy,

A few years ago I had the opportunity to meet you in sign your book, In the Unlikely Event. At that time my husband was stationed in Homestead AFB. In June of 21017 we moved to Tyndall AFB. In October 2018 hurricane Michael destroyed our new little town. All of my books were lost, including the book you signed. I'm hoping you will read this post and possibly sign another book for me. The signing was seriously one of the best nights of my life. I still have the picture of the signing!!! I don't have a lot heirlooms passed down and this book was going to be mine to my daughter. I would be forever grateful if I could possibly get you to sign a new book.

Dear Judy Blume,

I have almost read all of your kid chapter books!

And I love how all of your books have something in common,
Like a friendship for example in the book Just as long as we're together
And the book Hereís to you Rachel Robinson Stefanie, Alison, and Rachel all go through lots of drama. In the book Blubber Jill,Tracy,and
Wendy, plus Caroline were friends till the end but that book made me feel
bad for Linda Fisher because the way they treated her.

And I also think your books have in common that you need to go through to grow up, be brave a little. Like in the book Blubber when Linda let the kids made fun of her. And in the book Hello god itís me Margaret they were scared they would be the last ones to grow up. And in the book itís not the end of the world when Karen is not happy the way life is not going the way she wants.In another one of your books sheila the great when sheila is scared to go to swim lessons. I also love the Fudge series my favorite one is when they go to Maine.

I have a question how many times have you been to Maine?

From Izzy,

Dear Judy Blume,

I picked you as an author to read. I read part of Superfudge, part of Fudge-a-Mania And now am reading Double Fudge. I liked in Double fudge when you talked about what vegetables do to your body. I also like Fudge because he is funny. For example he was funny when he stood on the table in the classroom. Do you write about people that you know? Do you name your characters after people you know?

Hi Judy,
I wanted you to know how grateful I am to you for making my childhood so happy by reading your wonderful books. America has always held a fascination for me and to read books that were set there made me actually feel as though I were there! Oh how I wanted to be friends with sunny Sheila Tubman. You made all those characters come to life in my young mind but to write adult books that also had that same effect on me just proves what a talented writer you are. I was so upset when I found out I had missed you when you came to Waterstones bookstore in London. I would have waited for hours to see you. I just hope you know how many lives you have touched with your writing. What a truly wonderful gift you have given to the world. My childhood hero and I thank you from the bottom of my heart x
