Looks great to me! Lomond, since you've heard the whole thing, can you think of anything that should be added or changed in the book description?

Throughout the book, I was continually impressed by Fabre's observation skills. Where the description says "and gives us a close-up peep", I would add the phrase, "using his exceptional observation skills" so that it would look like " and, using his exceptional observation skills, gives us a close-up peep".

Sounds great to me. Jo, if you could make that one change for us, I think we can call this one officially done.

EDIT: Actually, I've just followed my own instructions and realized I got it wrong. Under User Control Panel, go to the tab that says Board Preferences. Then under that, you should see Edit Notification Options. Sorry!

Thanks mightyfelix! I'm so used to websites auto-subscribing you to a million notifications that you DON'T want :D . Congratulations on completion of the book!
