Fred, Bernadette, Perdy, Jack, their dog Coco and many animals cram into Jim's truck and find a nice camping spot. They explore the area and enjoy hang gliding, but have to be rescued when they come unstuck when white water rafting.
British-born semi-retired Professor of Medicine in Charleston, SC, widely traveled and author of many medical books. I wrote the first story about Fred the snake getting squished (and mended) when my 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, we dusted it off and found a publisher. It seemed popular and fun for me, so I now have six 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 midwest book review said "Move over for Fred-Fred, Lewis Carroll" And, I was not named after a rabbit.
When Jungle Jim took Jack, Perdy, Fred and friends on a camping trip, they saw beautiful mushrooms with bright spots on them. Jim said “In the woods, take care, heed the advice I need to share.
Mushrooms may look pretty, still, some of them can make you ill,
and please be careful, very, if you choose to eat a berry.
There are many types, and lots, that can break you out in spots”.
Everybody’s sure to laugh at a spotty tall giraffe!"
Be careful, check the guide books or ask a friendly ranger, please
