And here is the lady herself ... I always wondered what this legend-in-her-own-lifetime looked like.
In the 30 years that Blume has been writing, 10-yr-olds now dress like Rachel Stevens and read Cosmo Girl ... meanwhile, at the other end of the age scale, just the thought of Judy Blume seems to send grown women into a teenage turmoil of capital letters and exclamation marks.
In fact, those of Blume's *British* readers now in their 30s had an additional treat in the form of the all exotic suburban Americana in her stories - Oreo cookies, square dancing and summer camp. Spiffing!
