Wow a blast from my past.. I have always loved all of your books and reading your blog was a flashback ... back into your mind! When i was reading about your battle with the ductal carcinoma and you were talking about the size of your well... i immediately thought of margaret simon and the exercises Made me smile.... as does the memory of reading superfudge romance scene in the dark with a flashlight under the covers when i was young ... over and over and over! Freckle juice... I love you!
DEAR JUDY BLUME, YOUR BOOKS ARE AMAZING. I JUST FINISHED ARE YOU THERE GOD ITS ME MARGRET.A LONG TIME AGO I READ BLUBBER AND TALES OF FOURTH GRADE NOTHING. LOVE, ASHLYNN
I really hope this message gets to you.
I am an avid reader. I read all of your books when I was young. You helped me not to be freaked out over so many things and I want to thank you. I wish that I could put into words how much of a positive impact that you made on my life, but I can’t.
I know that I am not the only one that feels this way. I just wanted to thank you.
My name is Michelle and thank you for your time. I am reaching out to you today because I am six months away from getting married and as I began thinking about gifts to get my parents, I couldn't help but think of something that incorporates you for my father. Growing up, he read me your stories every night. Specifically, Superfudge. Knowing my love of the book, with the end of the last chapter my dad would begin again with the first page. I cannot tell you how many times we read and reread Superfudge. Not only did he know how much I loved the book, but he knew my want for a younger sibling, something that never happened, but I think he helped me to live vicariously through the relationship between Fudge and Tootsie. I was hoping, if I sent you a copy of my book, if you would mind signing a note to my dad. My dad is a man of simple wants, every birthday, Christmas, or Father's Day, all he would ask for is "World Peace". Though I cannot give him "World Peace" what I can do, is reach out to an author that brought us together, every night, throughout my childhood. Thank you for your consideration.
Hi what's up
Long time Fan, First time blogger. I was just wondering if you had caught the snappy pop-culture references to your book "Dear God It's Margret", in such hit movies as "Deadpool" and "Taldega Nights"? if you haven't seen these movies referencing your work, I highly suggest checking them out! keep up the good work! -Doc Theopolis
Dear Judy Blume,
No words can describe how much I admire you. You're my number one author. When I was 10 in fifth grade, the Fudge Series was my latest obsession, Every novel is the best. I'm glad I know what made you decide to write it. If only you could write another Fudge book. They're my most favorite books ever. You should write about Jimmy Fargo. Peter, Jimmy, and Sheila in eighth grade and high school would be fascinating. Fudge as well. and Tootsie. I know you haven't written a book in 16 years, but it would still be great to see more of Peter, Fudge, and their family and friends. I hope we eventually have a wonderful conversation about the Fudge Series and when and if you get another idea for more books.
Sincerley, Your biggest fan, Sekou D
Hello! Can you please write a sequel to "Are You There God? It': Me Margaret." It was interesting and I want to see what happens after. Thank You!
PLEASE WRITE MORE FUDGE BOOKS!!! I love all of them!
Can you write more Fudge books please? I like them.
Hi so i am doing a summer reading thing and I need to write to my favorite author, and since I don't have one, I just found an author I like with some sort of email thing. So, you have been chosen to get a message from me. By the way, your books are pretty good.
Hi Ms. Blume!
I have gone to therapy for religious OCD (scrupulosity) and anxiety for a couple years now, however my illness makes it VERY difficult for me to keep my faith and connection with god. I've been in the midst of a pretty intense anxiety attack concerning religion these past couple days. I stumbled across the preview for Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret on Goodreads and decided to read the preview. It was so comforting to find out that i'm not alone in having doubts about religion, and even though i'm perhaps a bit 'too old' for it, the clear language was soothing to my anxiety and faith and somehow it has helped in the midst of this awful storm. Although i'm past bodily puberty already, Margaret is so relatable in so many ways and it's so comforting to know that i'm not a freak or weak or alone. i will definitely read it as soon as i can! Thank you so much!
You've always been a blessing and a secret in my youth.
It only took 11 yrs to announce publicly that I enjoyed every word Are you there God & Blubber in particular. Both added the much needed wisdom then and today.
I unfortunately faced the "not good enough" or derailing dialogue from my future aspirations for as along as I've known myself. Parts of me over the years absorbed the negative chatter. HOWEVER, the big kid within didn't give in. Today I've published one, very short, story and aim to follow your path ( publish 3 before seeking publicist and editor). It's called You and I: Naomi and Jiggs. I'd like to mail it to you in hopes you'll find time to read it and impart wisdom.
Many thanks in advance , & I hope you continue to have days worth dreaming about.
Dear Judy Blume,
I grew up in Canada reading your wonderful books for teenagers. I felt I was not alone with my misgivings about myself, my family and my school life. I now have some wonderful young teenage friends here in Germany and would like to share your books with them. But their English is not yet developed enough to read your books in English and benefit from them. Are your books available in German? If so, I could not find them. If not, could I recommend someone who could translate them for you? I am studying translation in Erlangen, Germany and know someone who could do a fabulous job of translating your books into German. I very much look forward to hearing from you, in case you have the time. Please continue to make the world a little better with your writing. Sincerely, Gabriela G
Hi. My name is Ava. I really enjoy reading your books. I’ve only read one book so far but I am really into your books. I really love Fudge. He is my favorite character. My favorite part of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is when Fudge has his birthday party and everybody is going crazy. Also when Peter was watching Fudge and he fell off the playground and knocked his tooth out . My other favorite part was when Fudge ate Dribble, Peter’s turtle . Thank you for reading my message and I love your writing!
Dear Ms. Blume,
I just wanted to let you know how much I loved reading your book while I was growing up, and now I'm loving reading them to my 6 and 8 year old kids every night at bedtime! It's bringing back wonderful memories from my childhood. Thanks for the great entertainment!
Dear Judy Blume,
Hi my name is Aiden I just fished Tails of a fourth grade nothing and it was amazing!! A read again for sure! Now questions can Fudge eat a dog? Why did Fudge eat dribble? why did Sheila be a bit of a jerk? Once again the book
was amazing and when my mom was a kid my mom loved the book too!
Dear JUDY Blume,
hello my name is Samuel I Just finished Tales of a fourth grade Nothing and it was super. I love it how Fudge ate dribble and how he says something over and over again like in my tummy tummy tummy. I also like how the setting is in NEW YORK CITY I have always liked settings in New York those books are the best I have a lot of questions too. where did you get this idea? why did fudge eat dribble? why was the setting in new York? why did peter get the dog at the end of the book? why is Shelia so bossy? and why do you like to write is it fun or do you like inspiring kids? From Samuel thank you
blume i really love your book tails of a fourth grade nothing how long did it tack to write your book tales of a fourth grade nothing are there still elevator operator whats your first book your such a good writer i cant wait to read your other books how many books have you written
Dear Judy, I really enjoyed your book. My class read Tales Of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I have some questions like: Are their still elevator operators in New York? How did Peter get to school? I'm so looking forward to reading your other books!
Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing was hilarious and emotional, my favorite part is when Peter gets a dog. I have a question, did you always like writing books? I find it disgusting how Fudge ATE Dribble. I have a lot of connections with Peter, because I have a little sister who I find very annoying.
I am a teacher and we just finished reading your hilarious book, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I have a group of grade 4 students, writing in your guest book at this moment, and some of them have used my email for their messages. Just wanted you to know why there will be so many messages from the same email. They are all from different children. I have never seen them so excited to contact an author ! I told them that when I was young I actually wrote you a letter by snail mail and that you responded. Thank you for being such a gift to so many generations! Please know that you continue to touch our hearts, minds and funny bones!
DEAR JUDY BLUME TALES OF A FORTH GRADE NOTHING WAS SUCH A GOOD BOOK WHAT MADE YOU RIGHT THIS BOOK
I LIKE IT WHEN FUDGE THROS THE SPONE AND IT NOKES OVER THE PLANT SINCERE LY REESE
dear Judy Blume
you made a really good book.
when are you going to make a new book.
i really liked tales of a fourth grade nothing. but i don't get how fudge was able to swallow dribble whole. and i think it would be a good idea to write a book about jimmy fargo. but otherwise good job on your books.
Dear Judy Blume,
how come you made Fudge swallow the Tuttle dribble? and this story is the best one I have ever read , plus you have a good sense of humor.
P.S. what if fudge eats the dog???
Thank you so much for the work you've created. It's brought much needed escape and pleasure for me. I have read all of your books as a kid and now as an adult. I can't get enough of your writing. I love your intelligent characters, sense of humor and their sex lives. I have read all of your books written up till now and I find myself grieving that I've reached the end of your library. My favorite grown up book is "Smart Women." That was brilliant.
Are there any other writers who write kind of like you? Everything I read now is disappointing after you. Help?
Your Bookworm Fan,
Hi! Why did you/sally J Freedman go to Miami for the yeat? Were parents afraid of the people coming back from WW2 or something? I’ve heard of other families moving to FL at the same time.
Dear Judy Blume ,
You are the best author ever!
I love all your books!

Hi Judy Blume,
We are in third grade, almost in fourth grade, at George P. Phenix Pre K-8 School in Hampton,Virginia. We have a couple questions: What would life be like if you were not a writer? Who did you base Peter on? Were you a big fan of sports growing up? We really enjoyed reading your Fudge books. Fudge is funny and embarrassing. You are a great writer! Thank you for sharing your writing with us.
Mrs. Cury's Third Grade Class
Hi, Judy! I am just embarking on my career as a writer of picture books for children. I was an avid reader as a youngster and you were one of my very favorite authors. Thank you for inspiring me! When I grew up, I didn't know any writers. We were expected to grow up and get a 9-5, which I did. Fast forward 50+ years and now that I've raised my family, all I want to do is write. I'm trying to restructure my life to make that happen. I have already written several children's books and am working on 3 more while those are out for illustration. Wish me luck!
Please write another Fudge book
Just finished reading Fudge-a-Mania to my 5 year old grandson. We loved it - especially the end. I was laughing so hard I could barely read. Of course, he wants to get all the Fudge books now. Thanks for writing.
My daughter, one of you original great advocates, has been s reader and fab of yours for a long time. If I remember correctly, I took her to a book signing of yours.
I have written in sequence 3 stories and don't have any idea of how to find a publisher. There seems to be a brick wall.
Is there any way to break through? Thank you kindly, Liivi Alexander
Hi Judy - I was reading “make up or break up” by Kate Welshmanin library and was struck at how similar it seemed to “Just as long as we’re together”. I got home and checked and the first sentence is almost exactly the same. My mum said she hopes you’re getting royalties!! I love all your books, thank you for being an amazing author!! Ella
