Skyring I strongly suspect that the possum shown on the cover is of the American opossum variety. Is Gary Weston an American?

Gary Weston Have you any idea how hard it is to get an angry looking possum picture? No. I am an English man who lived in New Zealand for about 17 years. The N Z possums are the bush tailed possums (not opossums) which were brought over from Australia as mentioned in the book. I did find a more New Zealand possum picture for the later cover.

Skyring Not a lot of emotion in a possum. They mostly look cute or cheerful when fed. You could try waking one up repeatedly in the daytime, they get a bit grumpy then.
