Betty has presented literacy workshops to Under-Graduate and Graduate students in Early and Primary Years at the University of the Sunshine Coast... She is a very talented and passionate educator, and I recommend her highly to school principals, parent's groups, and anyone interested in furthering the power of language, literacy and literature in classrooms.
Mrs Echidna's Dilemma is one of the most glorious books I have ever come across; unique and inventive.
Radio Presenter & Author, Tasmania
I want to thank you for coming in and sharing your work with the students at USC. It was exciting, engaging, and a great real life example of literacy in action...and you are funny!
We enjoyed having you at our school as our visiting author (and much more - a creative, amazing 'illustrator' too)

My daughter took Mrs Echidna's Dilemma to her pre school today along with the wonderful puppets made by her grandma [a Christmas present]. Her teacher absolutely loved it and all activities for the day (and tomorrow) were based on Australian wildlife because of it. S was so proud to stand in front of the class and hold all the puppets. You've touched another 25 kids with your beautiful story and artwork. Thank you,
