FIVE stars for Fred book #8!
Next day, they all have gone, to a park called Yellowstone
to see Old Faithful Geyser. Careful, you’d be wiser
to stand back and watch it squirt, fountains and some lumps of dirt.
Then Jack said “WOW, look at that enormous cow”.
Jim replied, “No, my son, what you’re seeing is a bison.
They used to roam the plains in herds, big flocks of them like birds,
until the hunters came, and killed so many, what a shame.
My name is Peter Cotton (not named after a rabbit). I wrote my first story about Fred “When Fred the Snake got Squished and Mended” a very long time ago to teach my children to be careful crossing the road. There are now seven more books, all in rhyming verse and beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Lemaire. My grandkids like them and I hope you may also.
