Jungle Jim takes Fred the friendly snake, his girlfriend Bernadette, other animals, Perdy and Jack to enjoy some of the sights on the west coast of USA, from Hollywood California to Alaska and Waikiki beach, Hawaii
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"
The lady movie star helped Bernadette place Fred's star on the walk of fame. Lucky Fred!
Next stop San Francisco, then Yosemite, Tahoe, Seattle, Alsaka and Hawaii.
The latest review on Amazon says "a perfect read for both adults and kids...."
