1. publishers of picture books assign their own illustrators and most won’t accept artwork from unknown illustrators…

2. you’ll have to get permission from the oscar mayer company to use their name and images…

3. it’s a joke, not a story… and as written, isn’t suitable for small children, who are the market for picture books…

finally, a children’s picture book story needs to present some sort of ‘lesson’ to make it appeal to the parents who do the buying… and this has none… even the original fairy tale was a lesson about greed and its negative consequences… here, greed is rewarded… not a lesson i’d want my 17 grandkids to pick up!
