Judy says: Thank you, thank you for all your wonderful notes. I only wish I could write back to each of you personally. But in order to start a new book I need serious thinking time, which means less time for e-mail. Hope you understand.
Just want you to know that my assistant and I read this guestbook every day, and try to respond when appropriate. Your continued love and support are a constant inspiration.

Hello Judy,

I have been a fan of yours all my life. I am a psychologist in Silicon Valley and the host of a podcast called SuperPsyched. I would be deeply honored to interview you on the topic of censorship or anything that is truly alive for you.. My listening audience will love hearing from you!

Thank you for all you do, and all you have done.

Dear Ms. Blume,
I have been a fan of your work since I was a tween! Especially of "Are You There God? It's Me Margaret" and "Starring Sally J Freeman as Herself!"
I recently re-read "Sally J Feeman" as an adult, and I was able to understand it better (since I know more about the 1940s), and I can honestly say that I see a lit of myself in Sally, even at my age now, in the sense that I am quirky, and I like to make up my own stories and adventures in my head- essentially imagining my own life as a movie! 🙂

Hi,
My dad was pen-pals with you, he would really like to talk with you, Matt Perkins (I think it was 5 grade), but if you do respond, I can brag to my friends (not really).

Sincerely,
Asa

P.S. PLEASE RESPOND! (no pressure)

Hi Judy. I have a question. In the Fudge Books, why is Peter's Mom so mean? I think you should write another book. And Peter's Mom should whack Fudge HARD on his backside. So, should Peter. Also, Henry shouldn't be mean, plus he should get a girlfriend. Libby should get a boyfriend. The Howie's MUST NEVER BE MENTIONED AGAIN. Jimmy must like a new girl and then Peter should like her too, and then they get into a fight. Sheila should like someone, who moves away. And Peter should go to Vermont with Jimmy. Arrivederci. Goodbye Judy.
P.S. Fudge and Mrs. Hatcher are UGLY!!!!!

JUDY! JUDY! JUDY! ( this in itself is a miracle!) to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thank YOU! I am eight years old, and because of your book,” Hey God, it’s me, Margaret…” I learned as a child how to talk to God like a best friend But through talking to God and listening for his answers he lead me on a path that can only be described as miraculous. But I have to admit, it wasn't until this week ’Hey God it’s me, Margaret? I finally got on my knees and said,” hey God it’s me, Skylar?”PRAISE GOD! I don’t know if you have faith in God but I do know your story has led to believing and having childlike faith and listening to as I like to call it THE WHISPER WITHIN, Wherever you are, may you know YOU have made a difference in the world and isn’t that we are supposed to do, use our talents for the greater good? Your writing made me a curious and contagiously passionate reader at eight. Blessing to you, dear sweet Judy Blume !!! Much love and I started to write a book myself,skylar.

I came across an article about authors that like cats and you were mentioned. What kind of cats do you have? Are they important to your writing routine? I read that Hemingway's cats were important to him and his writing.

Dear Judy,
Every year, around Thanksgiving, I give my middle school students the assignment to thank their favorite author. When I think back to when I was their age, you were my favorite. You taught me how to be a teenage girl as much as, or maybe more than, my own mother. You helped me get through friend drama with Forever and family drama with It's Not the End of the World. I kept my first diary because of you. I know I would not have become the teacher, mother, and person I am today without your books. My sincerest gratitude!

Hi Judy. It's me again. One more question. Why does Fudge never get spanked?? He 100% should be more often. And Peter should whack him too. Also, why can't Tootsie get sick? For a week at least? And then it can be Fudge's turn to feel what Peter felt when Fudge ate Dribble.
P.S. Thier mother is the ugliest mother I have ever come across.

Hi Judy. I hope you don't mind me using my stepmom's email address. I have a question for you. Why do you allow Peter's parent's to be so mean to him in The Fudge Books?? And why don't you write another Fudge book? I'd be the first one to get it. I love all the characters in your books, and I am planning in being an author too. The Fudge Books are my fav. And if there could be a bit more drama in your books I'd love it.
P.S. please call me Sam!! I can't wait for you answer!!

We have question, in SuperFudge why do you reveal Santa being only an idea? We have enjoyed believing in Santa together as a family as well as the spirit of Christmas. I would have preferred to have a warning or acknowledgment before you “ruined my daughter’s childhood” as she put it. We definitely think in 4th grade you have another good year left before they find out about Santa. I look forward to your response.

My class is doing a wax museum.(BTW that's where each student gets to pick a person to dress up like and give a speech as if they were that person) At first I didn't know who to do. I really wanted to be Sally Ride but my friend got to it first. My mom REALLY wanted me to pick you. I was a bit hesitant at first, but when I learned more about you I was like: YES! Just so you know you are so inspiring to so many people!

Sincerely, Mercedes, age 11

JUDY ! JUDY! JUDY!
I am writing, from on my front porch overlooking the Santa Barbara coastline( this in itself is a miracle!) to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thank YOU!
I am fifty- five years old, and because of your book,”Hey God, it’s me Margaret…” I learned as a child how to talk to God like a best friend.
Twenty years ago, I became a broke single mom when my ex became a paraplegic just months after our divorce. But through talking to God and listening for his answers he lead me on a path that can only be described as miraculous.
But I have to admit, it wasn’t until this week when my 25 year-old daughter who lives in New York finally called me saying she hit rock bottom and was on her knees saying,”mom, do you remember that book you used to read me,’Hey God it’s me Margaret? I finally got on my knees and said,”hey God it’s me, Tarah?”
PRAISE GOD ! I don’t know if you have a faith in God but I do know your story has led to believing and having childlike faith and listening to as I like to call it THE WHISPER WITHIN, which is the name of my blog.
Wherever you are, may you know YOU have made a difference in the world and isn’t that we are supposed to do, use our talents for the greater good?
Your writing made me a curious and contagiously passionate reader at eight.
Blessing to you, dear sweet Judy Blume !!!
Much love ,

Dear Judy,

I grew up reading your books and have saved them for my kids to read when they're old enough too! My debut MG novel-in-verse set in 1990s Sri Lanka will be published next year by Holiday House, and I was wondering if you could read it and decide if you want to offer a blurb? It would be surreal for me!

Thank you,
Warmly,
Thushanthi
