About this author

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.

Ursula Dubosarsky Thanks for your lovely message Genie - lovers of words AND guinea pigs are destined to be friends!


Eugenia Dear Ursula,
Thank you so much for accepting my friend request
I have thoroughly enjoyed all your novels that I have read so far (especially The Word Spy books) and look forward to reading more of your work.

Best wishes,
Genie

PS. I love guinea pigs too (as you can see from my dp) and have 2 of my own :)
