This looks wonderful, CONGRATULATIONS!:)
You mentioned Koala's Betsy...Your sequel to this book could be "NOT SO Picky Eaters". I just learned recently baby Koala's eat mom's poop for the first while, eeeee but kids would love that!:)

Animal poop eaters maybe?     :whistle

I'll leave it to one of you to write that particular sequel.

By the way, thanks Vijaya. It's not that I have good ideas, it's that I have LOTS of ideas. Ninety percent of them get shot down.

Only owls will eat a skunk; owls have no sense of smell. So maybe they're non-picky eaters.  :owl 

And... CONGRATS!  :hurrah
