Dear Mrs. Blume,
My name is Conner and I am 10 years old. I am doing research on you for an oral report I will be doing in school. I have read many of your books. Sleepy Saturdays, Cool Zone, Freckle Juice, It's Not the End of the World and many more. My mom's favorite is Dear God It's me Margaret. I know that you are very busy writing new books for readers to enjoy but I was hoping if you had the time if you could tell me anything about yourself and or your work. Where do you get your ideas for your books, how long does it take you to write one. Anything at all would be amazing. I don't want to take up anymore of your time so I will end it here and let you get back to work on your next book!
Thank you, Conner

We have read 2 of your books and we love them so much! We are reading your Fudge Series books. Do you plan on writing anymore Fudge books? After we read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great we plan to read Superfudge, which we are super excited about! We hope you write another book about Sheila, Fudge, and Peter. We just love your books. We love the characters, especially Fudge! Does Peter ever get a girlfriend? Are you going to add anymore characters? We hope some day you do write more books! Bye!
Sincerely, Mrs. Kiefaber's 2nd Grade Class

Dear Judy Blume
Hello,my name is Edie. I am 13 in July.
The reason I am writing to you is because of your book Deenie. I really love it, and really want it to be a movie... Please could you suggest this to Disney or other studios.
If they think it'd a good idea, would you let me know please ? I would love to try for the part of Deenie or her friends (Midge,Janet or Barbra)
I am also reading 'Here's to you Rachel Robinson' and have finished 'Are u there God its me Margret'. They are both amazing.
We read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing with my classmates. I really liked it.
We read your book,Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing with my classmates. I really liked it.

Hi I do not have a email but I am a McAullife student
I love your books!
HI SHUVAM ITS ME SAHAJ
I have read many of your books. They were the best. I want you to write more Fudge books.
Dear, Judy Blume.
I'm learning to drive a five speed. I've been really terrified. Today I told myself if I could get to the Goodwill I would reward myself with a book. Well, I made it with only one person yelling at me. Accomplishment. I walked into Goodwill like a queen. After pilfering through the shelf I spotted five of your books. My heart leapt. I was very limited on money, but for .47 cents...wow! When I got to the counter the lady told me that Goodwill changed book prices and they would be 1.27 apiece. My heart sunk like a boulder in a lake. "Oh. Okay. I have enough for only two." I picked out 'Tales of a fourth grade nothing' and 'Superfudge'. I left after feeling humiliated by counting all my change out in front of a line of people and left with my head down. A moment later I heard, "Ma'am. Ma'am!"
I turned to see a stranger running at me.
"Did I forget something?" I had tears in my eyes from embarrassment and just wanted to go.
Sbe held out 'Blubber', 'Superfudge', and 'Iggie's House'. Tears really welled up now and I gasped.
Choked up I asked if I could hug her. She let me.
What that lady will never know is I have been trying to have a baby for four years. I have a chest I'm filling with books for my future kids. My faith chest. I've always dreamed of reading Judy Blume to my children...
Now when I see these books I'll always remember the lady with curly hair...an angel running to me across the parking lot. I took this as a sign that God will let me read Judy Blume to my children one day.
I will tell them this story.
And when they see these books an angel bought for them...they'll see what I do. Blessings come when least expected.
I love the Tales Of AFourth grade nothing book!😄
Hi!I love your books.We read your fudge books and I LOVED them.You really do bring the story to life. I've read a few others like The Pain and The Great One and Freckle Juice.I loved them.I also have Deenie ,but I'm not old enough so I'm waiting.And anyways ,I'll have to end the letter,so bye!!!!!!!<3
I Hi Ms Blume,
I am 43 years old and I have loved your books forever. Your books, Super Fudge, Tales of the fourth Grade Nothing, Than Again Maybe I won't and all the rest have been apart of my childhood. I have not read your books only once but at least 50 times each. I really love the story lines and how you make it so real. Thank You for letting me grow up with You

Hi Judy, I am wondering somethings about your family. I am wondering how many kids you have, do you have any sibilings, and how many books you have written. By the way I am a very huge fan of your books. Also I am researching about you. If you get a chance please, please, please email me back. THANK YOU!!!
I love ur books they are amazing
I just finished "In the Unlikely Event" and am sitting here sobbing. It was THE BEST book I have read in a very long time. SIMPLY AMAZING. You touched a place in my heart and I thank you for that. PS...I am a former flight attendant!
I love your books! Please write more books with Peter Hatcher. Also, does Peter resemble anyone you know is so how and how does Peter resemble him/her? Also maybe you could write a book when Peter,Fudge, and all their friends and family are all grown up and married; so basicly what happens when they are all grown up?
hi mrs.blume. I LOVE YOUR BOOKS! espeacialy blubber
If you are ever in my area please let me know. I grew up with your books and I would love for my daughters to meet you. I live in the Northern Va area near Washington DC. I cannot tell you how much your books made me laugh and I have such wonderful memories to share with my girls because they are avid readers themselves.
Hi Ms. Blume, my name is Alex. I a, in 3rd grade at Corona, Queens. My teacher reads us your books everyday. I have a question for you about Otherwise known as Sheila the Great: my question is why didn't you out a title for any of the chapters? And My teacher is great to read Judy Blume's books.
You are an awesome writer.I have read many books of yours.
I LOVE YOUR BOOKS

Hi, it is Cayley

Hi, it is Cayley
I am wondering how many books you have written, if you have any sibilings, and how many grand-kids you have. Please email me back if you can. Thank you!!
While sitting at my dining table in my quiet condo,I just finished reading In the Unlikely Event. Tears are in my eyes as I sit here and think about the story. Thank you....
I have a complete Judy Blume Diary. Its the only diary I kept - the rest I burned because I was too embarrassed to see what I wrote in them. This one is actually a little cute. I was 16 and 16. Its beautifully written even if I do say so myself. I would love to publish it, with names changed to protect the not so innocent, but I think you would get a giggle. It's so full of teenage angst. It's on your pages but in my writing. Let me know if you're interested.
NPR says "'There's no Judy Blume book' for how to respond to a request for naked images, Nancy Jo Sales tells Fresh Air with Terry Gross."
Maybe it's time there is one. You've handled many issues quite well in your works for young people. It's a new era with new issues.
I love your books so much,even my mom likes your books.I don't have a email yet,but I am at Christa McAullife School.Also I am a student there.
Hi,Judy Blume.I will like you to make a story about 2 kids(boys)who wander into the woods which lead them into a strange and magical place and they can't find their way back home.And on their great journey back they meet some weird friends who help them on this long and dangerous quest! Judy my sister is the one named Phae.She's your #1 fan.I'm starting to like you too.I'll be tring to find your books that are for my age .Well for now Judy I better be going to watch the Oscar awards with my family.Bye-Bye!
Just finished N THE UNLIKELY EVENT. Had to tell you that you got it ALL right - those years - you brought back memories. Then going into the internet and reading your essay about you and Mary. That was me and Harriett -
Many friends of that era gone - you wrote:"...to have someone to remember with you."
Yes. Such a need.
I chatted with you once in an elevator at an SCBWI conference in CA. Thanks for all you've done for children's writers -
Hi,Judy!My name is Phae.I have a very important reason I'm typing to you.I just need you to write another STARRING SALLY J. FREEDMAN AS HERSELF book,except for Douglas is the main character.
And I'm writing a very special book for you.Got to go now I'll explain in another note.Bye for now!
Just wanted to let you know that another generation of children have discovered your stories about Fudge. I read them to my children in bed before they went to sleep and now my son has grown up and become a teacher and encouraged his class to read them and of course they love them too.
Dear Judy Blume,
Hi I'm Taylor. I have read so many of your books and watched so many videos about you. It would be my dream to meet you but I live in California. I really hope you get this. Thanks a lot. By the way I've read Deenie, Are You There God It's me Margret, Blubber, Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing, and Super Fudge.
Dear Judy Blume,
Hi. My name is Jordan and I am 9 years old. I really really love your Fudge books. The first one I read was ďTales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.Ē Then I read Sheila the Great, SuperFudge and Fudge-a-mania. My mom reads them to me as a bedtime story. Now I just started ďDouble Fudge.Ē
I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS. Why donít you ever show Peterís birthday? And why donít you have any pictures in your book? (because itís more fun that way).
And I just want to let you know that I live on the upper west side - in 165 West End Avenue - Lincoln Towers. Thatís West 68th Street - really near where Peter from the book lives.
Itís so great that I am writing to you. I hope you can write back.
