My newest book, PICKY EATERS, is about to be released by Sterling, and at last I get to see the cover. I really love pandas, and I REALLY love the cover! Thank you, Amy-Clare Barden!

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
