Peter has been enjoying his tour of Australia's Top End. Saw lots of crocodiles in Kakadu, performed in the Cultural Centre in Katherine, and swam in waterfalls at Katherine Gorge, Litchfield Park and Berry Springs. He celebrated his birthday with a scenic flight over Kakadu. Was very warm but also very beautiful. In Darwin Peter has been visiting schools and having a lovely time singing with the local children.
Scholastic have released a second picture book and CD of Peter's songs - "Juicy Juicy Green Grass". This colourful book contains the illustrated lyrics with a CD of Peter's songs Juicy Juicy Green Grass, Tadpole Blues, Silly Postman and Red Says Stop.
This follows the big success of the first book in this series, "Wash Your Face in Orange Juice". Available in bookshops, and through book clubs at your school or pre-school

In April 2013 I was in London and went to Evensong at Westminster Abbey, which reminded me of the last Royal Wedding that I and millions of others watched on TV. I’m not a monarchist but I’m a sucker for the old fairytales (you may have noticed I have written a lot of songs about fairytales). To me the idea of a prince marrying his princess and then having a royal baby conjures up images of Snowwhite, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and even Rumpelstiltskin. I am always overawed at the miracle of birth – every baby born is a miracle, but this one is a kind of fairytale miracle. So I’ve written this song for William and Kate. Hope they like it!
HEAR YE HEAR YE !!!!! I will be overseas in 2013 from April 19th - June 1st but you can contact me on email@example.com I'll be checking my emails regularly and will get back to you ASAP
My big project in 2012 was to compose, record and tour a new album. Well it happened! Quirky Berserky, the turkey from Turkey has been 'born' and taken on tour all around Australia. So he's a well travelled turkey! Remembering the 46 countries mentioned in the title song was a challenge at first - but I did it! QB has even appeared at a couple of weddings! Listen to the song and you'll find out why.......
If you'd rather buy any of my CDs and DVDS from a retailer (rather than via the 'shop' on this website) the most reliable is JB Hi-Fi. They have stores all over Australia. Other stores include WIndmill Educational in Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart and Launceston, Dillons Music in Norwood (SA) and ABC Shops. If you want to buy from an ABC Shop, ring first as they're often out of stock
