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,my class gust finished tales of a fourth grade nothing. I think it was one of the most funny and beast book in the world. Also me and my family went to the moves for my moms birthday. We went to see hey god its me Margret, I did not think much of the move but as I watched it was super good. It was funny and my favorite part was when they cape saying we must we must we must increase are bust. thank you for giving me something to watch and read🤗.
Lots of hugs
I am watching Are You There God It's Me Margaret. I love the movie as much as the book. I just had to take a moment to tell you that I loved your books as a child. You as well as my Fourth Grade teacher are the reason I am an avid reader today. She read Blubber to us in class and I loved it so much that I went and got it at the library and read it again. I have loved reading ever since,you opened a world of great adventures for me.Thank you for your wonderful books, I truly enjoy reading them.
I am ten years old, and I’ve had Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Superfudge on my bookshelf for the longest time and have not read either of them, but then just four days ago I finished reading one of my books, and I decided to read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and I loved it so much, so I was obviously super excited to read Superfudge. I loved that one to, I am super exited for reading the rest of the books in the series! I also loved Are You There God It’s Me Margeret. Thank you for writing such good books.
I just watched Judy Blume Forever and I feel like I just had dinner with a long-lost family friend. I am 52 and read your books throughout my childhood, thanks to a great 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Jones. Thank you for sharing your whole self and your personal journey across the years. You've touched millions of young people and continue inspire new generations. Thank you for being you!
Also if we can get petitions from 1800 Atlantic. Any ideas?
Thanks so much.
I loved your books a child, my absolute fave was Tiger Eyes. What a compellingly beautiful story!
Now as a very-close-to-40 I found myself last week re-reading Just as Long as We're Together and Here's to You Rachel Robinson, and found I couldn't put them down. Just brilliant! I love writing and always think the mark of a great story is when you feel you could read about the characters' lives forever.
So, with that in mind I have pressing questions... does Rachel go out with Jeremy Dragon when she gets back from music camp? Does Steph's mum marry the Stairmaster or get back together with her Dad? Do Charles and Rachel learn to get on? How are things for Alison once baby Matthew comes along? Does she win the vote for class president? I could go on ...!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on these important matters.
I'm currently writing a pre teen novel with a 'anxiety self help' element. I was so surprised to see some self help in Here's to you Rachel Robinson. You sure were ahead of your time! Thanks so much Judy for all your work, you clearly are a voice for many, a hope and a light when there feels like none and a massive inspiration to me as I ponder getting past the 'gatekeepers' of children's publishing.
With kindest regards,
It would be wonderful to learn how to invite you to speak to a group about your experiences of censorship when Reagan was elected and what is happening in America today.
Thank you for all you do!
Warm regards, Sarah
Especially The Pain And The Great One :D! Thank you for bringing joy in the world and making SO much people happy. You are my favorite author 🙂
Our class just finished Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Parts of the story I found funny were when Fudge ate Dribble, and when he cut his hair. I think your books are very funny and you're a great author. Sincerely,
Shockingly, this is my very first letter to you ever. It's shocking because I'm 47 years old and you've been a special person to me since I was 8 years old and first picked up "Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing" in the library of my elementary school back in Cleveland, Ohio. I could go on and on about all of the ways in which you've inspired and affected my life but I'm writing today with a most recent example... and a thank you. I knew from my elementary years that I wanted to be a writer. And certainly, I've always written. But I am an incredibly porous human being and the rejection letters have always felt too much to bear. I quit a million times over because, though it's quite admirable to "write for the sake of writing," I also very much want to be published. I've had some success but nearly what one might classify as a career. I have felt quite hopeless about this aspect of my life. And then... AND THEN. Then I watched your recent documentary. My visceral response was just the same as it always is when I read a "Judy Blume" book: chills, a deep knowing, the feeling of seeing aspects of myself in another. In you! And now I know, I MUST KEEP WRITING. And I WILL be published. I'm not sure for which piece of writing (I'm debating moving forward with memoir or the YA version of my story) or when... but I will. And I owe all of that inspiration to you. Thank you. You mean so so much to so so many. All my love and gratitude,
Evan Cooper xo
