British-born semi-retired Professor of Medicine in Charleston, SC, widely traveled and author of many medical books. He wrote the first story about Fred the snake getting squished (and mended) when his kids were young, to teach them how (not) to cross the road. When they had their own children, they asked "what happened to Fred-Fred" (so-called because he was in two pieces initially). So, Peter dusted it off and found a publisher. It seemed popular and fun, so there are now 8 books (beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Lemaire) about Fred the friendly snake. After recovering from squishness, Fred has gone to school, welcomed Jungle Jim and other animals, explored Charleston, enjoyed the beach and taken his friends camping. The 7th and 8th books have Fred and friends exploring the cities and sights of USA.
The midwest book review said "Move over for Fred-Fred, Lewis Carroll"
When Fred the frendly snake came to live with the boy in Charleston, he enjoyed exploring the lovely city. What a treat to stroll through the market downtown and admire all sorts of local crafts and goodies.
Sweetgrass baskets, paintings, hot suaces, packets of grits, jewellery, hats, drinks and snacks, funny signs and so much more.
Fred was proud to see his books on show at the Historic Preservarion Society booth!
Maybe they should all go on a carriage ride, a great way to see and learn about the city?
