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.
Our class just finished Tales Of A Forth Grade Nothing. My favorite part is when Fudge said eat it or wear it with the peas. It was so fun to read your book. From,
My class just finished reading your book Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing. I loved it when Fudge threw a fit at the shoe store and wanted the same shoes as Peter. I love the end where they gave Peter a new puppy.
Your new fan,
Hi! My class just finished reading your book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. It was pretty funny and amazing! I can't wait for more of your books. My favorite part was when Fudge ate Dribble, Peter's turtle.
Your new fan,
My name is Shannon, and I'm 33 years young. My Mom was facing jail time for a DUI that resulted in a police chase and crash in the late 80's. When she was treated at the hospital, she found out she was pregnant with me. I was thriving and healthy. When I was born, a woman named Joan entered my Mother's life and started babysitting me so she could attend AA and weekend jail time. Joan became a grandmother to me. Summers and holidays with her were the best times of my childhood. She introduced me to books and one of the first ones she bought me was a Judy Blume book, Are you there God? It's me, Margaret. Through childhood trauma, and some major trials and tribulations, Judy Blume books got me through. A few years ago, Joan passed away. I had an alarm on my phone to call her because it had been years since I spoke with her. I never fulfilled that phone call. Every day, she prayed for me and over me. All the way until she passed. I have yet to visit her grave site and hope that one day I can stop by and say goodbye properly and leave a Judy Blume book for memory. Thank you for being such a positive influence in my childhood
Your book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is amazing! We loved it! One of our favorite parts is when Peter finds out Fudge ate Dribble! We also loved when Fudge thought he was a bird! We felt happy and rolled our eyes at Fudge's crazy adventures. Our favorite character is Fudge!
Thank you for writing this book!

It sounds cliche to say my mom is your biggest fan, but she definitely is a big fan. They helped her out so much as a child, especially her moving from one place to another, she really identified with Margaret from the book 'Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret'. Do you know if you'll be at any upcoming events? My mom would love to meet you or even see you speak.
It's inspired her to write, and to even start a book club at the library (she works there) for Judy Blume books (which is still a work in progress).
So, do you know if you'll be in any events some time?
Thank you so much!
Thank you to you or your assistant or both for taking the time to read this, you’re wonderful human beings. Thank you for all that you do. I hope you are all doing well and are safe!
It’s ok if you don’t publish this, I really just wanted to bring attention to the Samuels library closing in hopes that maybe you could use your power for good and people might do something. I believe in the power of Blume!
I will always be thankful for the fact that an author such as yourself gave your gift. I have such fond memories of the "Super Fudge" books. They helped contribute to my love of reading over the years. The 70's and 80's were a special time and as a kid in that era your books helped me. My friends and I enjoyed sharing your stories and I'm looking forward to sharing them with my daughter.
I have decided to teach, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.Thank you! I cannot wait to begin discussions that were never discussed when I was their age. You are a significant part of women's education.
You and your writing are gifts!
I manage an LGBT+ community radio station in the UK. We would love to do a short interview with you, our younger listeners as well as your older fans would love to hear your thoughts on the LGBT+ world.
I know you are busy but if you do have time to do a pre recorded interview I’m happy to work around your schedule.
My name is Patty Corona and I am writing to you on behalf of Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties - we are such HUGE fans! Your work was such an inspiration to each of us here at Planned Parenthood growing up and helped mold us into the fierce feminists we grew up to become!
We would love the opportunity to chat with you soon for a possible speaking opportunity at an upcoming event we have early 2024. Please feel free to email us directly at email@example.com if you are interested. We would absolutely love to host you and meet our supporters who are all also such lifelong fans here in sunny Orange County, CA. Hope to hear back from you soon!
