About the Author
Alongside her fiction for older children, Ursula has a wonderful talent for picture books such as the highly popular The Terrible Plop and Too Many Elephants in This House, which have both been adapted as successful stage productions. She has also written the non-fiction Word Spy books about the English language, both of which also won major national awards.
Ursula has a PhD in English literature from Macquarie University and lives in Sydney with her family.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
"A book of exceptional beauty." -- The Sunday Age
"When three kids who know each other casually decide to buy an old game in a secondhand shop, they not only have an amazing adventure, but they also get to know each other better. Francis Greenslade's beautiful voice effectively delivers the drama and magic of the story. Fred and Rowley must cope with the much younger 'Rabbit' and discover his value, especially when he proves to be the real hero. There is an old-fashioned feel to this story. Greenslade's presentation particularly enriches and highlights a unique tale." -- AudioFile Magazine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Classroom uses aside, this book is an engaging read for both the young and not so young - even though I have purchased an electronic copy of The Game of The Goose, i've still kept my hard copy because it's too hard to give up a great book. The themes are appropriate for young independent readers and the characters are very believable.
Dubosarsky takes her readers into the fantastical realm and she's created a totally believable roller-coaster ride!
