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.
My name is Andrena. I'm 9 years old. My favourite book is Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I can relate to peter. My sister is just like fudge. Except when fudge tries to fly like a bird. I was sad when Dribble passed away. But I was really happy when peter got his dream pet. I think you should make a book about Jimmy Fargo because you wrote about peter,Sheila and Fudge.
I read tales of a Fourth grade Nothing it was amazing will you make more books? Also you should make a book with peters dog turtle it would be so cool. I love you book tales of a Fourth grade Nothing I have only read one book but I think your the best Author. I am in grade 3 and I hope to be like you some day
I really enjoyed reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I love how Peter got a new dog at the end. Also I love how Peter's dad shoved paper towels up Fudge's pants. The book was so,so funny 🤣. I hope you can write a new story. By Rylan to Judy.
I enjoyed reading tales of a 4th
Grade nothing because it's the only one I have read so far.My favorite chapter is birthday bash because of fudge's friend Sam because my name is Sam.Dribble pay period is my favorite character and how old is your son and is Dribble real?
Sincerely your reader Sam
I am 10 turning 11 next month. I have read your Romana and Beezus books when I was youger and I loved them. I have just finished reading "Are you there God, it's me Margaret" I think it is a wonderful book. I kind of relate but in a opposite way. I didn't want to bloom as fast as I did. It's a pain trying to find out what your shoe size is every other month and learning that you have to change your bra size again.Your books have shown me a lot and I'm very glad to have found you.
One of your adoring readers,
My favorite part was when Peter got a new dog because it makes me happy when people are happy. I also felt bad when Fudge ate Turtle. Of all the books I have read, this is my favorite Judy Blume book so far you are my favorite author.
I love,love,love all of your books but my most favorite was the Tales of 4th Grade Nothing because every time I read Tales Of 4th Grade Nothing I can relate to the story and it's funny!!!!!!!!!
like when Fudge knocked his teeth out and when fudge ate dribble also when Peter got a new dog.
I grew up in Bountiful, Utah in th 1970's. I was the youngest of four daughters raised by my single mother in an incredibly Mormon and conservative city.
My mother was smart and able and she did not think she could have children. She married my father and had my oldest sister. Her Mormon doctor told her she could not get pregnant while breastfeeding and so she had my next sister a year later. The same doctor gave her hormones that he said were birth control, but were not, and my third sister came a year and 2 days later. I was the last birth control failure.
My mom loved us and she read to us. She raised us --4 girls-- as a single mother with very little support.
One of my favorite memories of my mom was that she read to us a lot. She read us "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret". My sisters were hitting puberty,but as the youngest, I had not.
When my mom read us the masturbation scene, I went to bed thinking about my secret spot and I tried to find it. I told my mom the next morning that I had found my secret spot and it was on my left elbow.
I appreciate that she was willing to read us your books, embrace our sexuality as girls and women even though we were in the Mormon culture. I appreciate that you have helped girls and women find our own sexuality and helped us value ourselves.
I found my secret spot and I respect you and my mother for helping me feel that sexuality is not shameful. I grew up in poverty and without a father. I was raped and hurt multiple times. I think many girls in my situation where we did not have homes that were safe have had the same experience.
Your books helped me own my own sexual experences. I will always be grateful to you.
As a mother now I see myself as teenager and I am so sad I was in the positions where I was not respected, where I was hurt, and where I was poor and so open to predators.
Your books helped me feel that I was valuable and that my sexuality was not something that should be shameful.
I am very grateful to you.
Much love and gratitude,
