Ursula Dubosarsky is an award-winning author of numerous books for children and young adults. About The Golden Day, her first book with Candlewick Press, she says, "The little girls watch, wonder, respond, change, and grow — and then their childhood is gone, forever. This element of the story, I suppose, is at least partly autobiographical. But, as I say — all of our teachers come home safe and sound in the end." Ursula Dubosarsky lives in Australia.

Dear Word Spy,

I was reading a freaky fact book and found the contents page. One particular chapter I came across was the weird words. There, I finally stumbled upon my favourite word!Please don't be shocked (it is the longest word in the English language):

(pronounced noo-mono-ultra-micro-scopic-silico-volcano-conio-sis)
