The name blubber all started out of a mini-essay about any topic you wanted to write about. So this girl,who was ...fat, wrote about bubber[the fat skin of a whale:] .Everybody in her class started calling her blubber since that day on.She had a very low self-esteem and was very upset.READ THIS BOOK FOR MORE INFO!!!

I remember when my godmother (who was a teacher) gave me this box set. Blubber and Then Again, Maybe I Won't really struck a chord with me since I was this fat kid who had stomach trouble when I lied.

You gotz' to give mad props to Judy Bloom. Sure some of it was dirty and weird, awkward and icky (in a sugar coated sort of way) but hey I was feeling it then and I bet those folks in the 9-14 year old age range need in little Bloom in their lives!

ok, so I read all the Judy Blume books while I was growing up... I used to borrow them from the library and even my mom would end up reading them. They are all great books, never got bored of any of them.

Nearly all of the children of women in our book group are daughters, so we decided to give these Judy Blume books a fresh read. Great books.

Gotta love Judy. Hard to believe that these gems are on the American Library Association's Most Challenged Books List. Maddening.

I loved Judy Bloom as a child and while I have not read all of these tales, I still think Judy Bloom is a classic for all children.

Everything about being a pre-teen that I did not learn from my parents, I learned from Judy Bloom books. :-)
