Betsy’s art is usually humorous, drawn in pen or brush with watercolor washes, as in Click, Clack, Moo; Cows That Type, but she also paints in a naturalistic style as in Chubbo’s Pool. Gorilla Walk is her first collaboration with her husband Ted and is about their trek to see the mountain gorillas in Uganda. This was followed by five more collaborations; Elephant Quest, set in the Okavango Delta, Top To Bottom Down Under, about their adventures in Australia, Horse Song; A Story of the Naadam, set in Mongolia, Balarama; A Royal Elephant, set in India, and the soon to come Puffling Patrol, about the puffins of Iceland.
Duck and his friends are at it again. This time they're pooling their considerable resources to win a local talent show, because first prize is a TRAMPOLINE! The cows sing 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' (to no success). The sheep bleat out 'Home on the Range' (need I say more?). The pigs fall asleep before their turn to perform the interpretative dance they've been practising for weeks. Fortunately, the best is yet to come...From Duck, who, it appears, was 'Born to be Wild'. The question is, how will Farmer Brown react when he finds a certain trampoline on his farm?
