Dear Mrs. Blume,
I wanted to thank you for responding to my student's request for info. There is no greater thrill for a sixth grade reader than to hear back from an author personally. I'm sure I speak for many an English teacher who counts you among the most influential authors they have read. Be well.

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.

My daughter Emersyn had spinal fusion for scoliosis back in 2017, since then she has started her own business selling homemade bath bombs, raising money to put together care baskets for other kiddos undergoing this surgery. Your book Deenie was a favorite of hers! She was just named a finalist in US Cellular’s “The Future Of Good” and will be recognized in March! Her hope is to start including your book in her care boxes in the near future. Any idea where or how we could buy these books in bulk at a discounted rate so that she can share this amazing story with others in her situation? Thank you so much! What a great writer you are!!

Dear Judy
I’ll be honest, I haven’t read all your books but the ones I have have been so amazing. I will get to the rest though.. My ultimate favorite would have to be “Are you there God, it’s me Margaret.” I was a teenager when I read it and it has been a book that made my teenage years somewhat easier. I got it at our local library and now that my sister is almost a teenager, I wanted her to read it because it might help like it did me. I really really love your books. You are amazing ❤️ Thank you Judy

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 Here’s 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 it’s me Margaret they were scared they would be the last ones to grow up. And in the book it’s 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,
a fan

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?

Sincerely,
Jack

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

Caren Goldberg

Hi Judy, My name is Caren and I teach 4th grade. One of my students noticed the publication of one of the Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing had a slight variation, and was wondering why it got changed. In chapter 3, page 19 it states "I learned to stand on my head in gym class." However, in the other copy it states "My Grandma taught me to stand on my head when I spent the night at her house." One publisher is Yearling, while the other is Puffin books. My student wrote a letter to the publishing company to inquire about it. I just wanted to share. Your books make a huge impact on everyone who reads them, including the ones who notice the slight changes!

Mrs. Ziegler's Class

Hi Judy!

We are hoping you eat more pancakes... to write more Fudge books! We have an idea that your next book should be about Peter as a grown up with a daughter who is enthusiastic like her uncle Fudge. Her name should be Lolli. Get it? Lollipop... like her aunt Tootsie. We thought of a title, LOLli (we capitalized LOL because Lolli and Fudge provide LOTS OF LAUGHS!)
We felt like a part of your family and wanted to thank you for inviting us into your NYC apartment.
Will you please write another book? Maybe Fudge can find his shoe on the subway 17 years later? Or maybe he and Lolli wipe mashed potatoes on the walls just for fun? or maybe Fudge still counts cheerios every morning as an adult?
We would love to help you write new chapters! We will start working on our ideas ASAP.

Love, your favorite Fudge fans (we like Peter too, he always gets left out).

Dear Ms. Blume,

I wrote to you way back in 2015 when I believe I was in 4th grade. I am currently in 7th grade and I still LOVE your books. I do have a question for you, and I do know that you are really busy and don't have time to answer everybody's emails and letters but I have to ask. At the end of Staring Sally J Freedman as Herself you comment that you where like Sally, confused by the end of the war, being a Jew. And in most of your books important characters are Jewish. I don't have a problem with that, I'm Jewish myself. I sometimes have a problem with people bullying me for being Jewish. Do you have any solutions for me? I still really really love your books. My Aunt Lisa sponsors the Book fair in Miami Florida and once while you where there my cousin when to the bathroom and you where there she politely nodded hello to you. I think that it was really funny that she didn't realize who you where. Any way thanks for your amazing books!

I am not sure if you remember me, but I sure remember you! I was a colorist at Robert Stuart Salon. In 2008, I was pregnant with my daughter. I spoke with you offer about our mutual joy of reading. I shared with you how I treasured your books growing up. You do kindly gave me a signed copy of your new book, and I devoured it! Well, my daughter is now 10, and she is reading your books. I am writing you as she is doing her book report on Blubber!! She is adding in her book report that she met you once in her mummys belly. The joy to share my love of reading with my children now is so heart warming! My 9 year old son mostly likes hockey books.. But I'll take it.

Such as, how was her treatment, did Denise's mom finally accepted her condition, and did Deenie become a Orthopedist? I know you are very busy and probably aren't going to respond, but if possible, please do. Deniee was the first book by you that I read, and I am going to keep reading your books.

ITUE: Riveting. Couldn't put it down. I just have two plot problems:
1. Daisy Dupree – If she didn't have female parts, then she didn't go through puberty. Didn't she notice she wasn't menstruating? Wish you'd given us the name of Daisy's condition.
2. The plane crashes. All three planes had the same engine, but the accounts say that that engine was in nearly all commercial aircraft. So why weren't other planes crashing? Why incoming and outgoing at Newark?
Nonetheless, you do a good job of conveying that yes, coincidences – both lucky and tragic – do happen, what religious folks believe notwithstanding. Loved it, and all the rest.

Tales of the 4th Grade Nothing was read to me in elementary. I have been a teacher now for 24 years, and I have read the Fudge books to every one of my 24 homeroom classes. I was ecstatic when you came out with Double Fudge. My class is currently on this book, and they wanted me to ask if by any chance you would write another book for this series. I have former students to this day ask if I still read the Fudge books to my classes. I love the way your writing flows. It holds the children's attention, and keeps them wanting more!
