This is the seventh book in the series about Fred the friendly snake, who was sent as a present by Jungle Jim. Having gone camping with his friends in book six, in this book, “When Fred The Snake and Friends Explore USA East,” the adventure continues as they have fun in some of the best cities along the eastern United States.
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. Books 7,8 ans 9 have Fred and friends exploring the cities and sights of USA.
The midwest book review said "Move over for Fred-Fred, Lewis Carroll"
