I'm Here receives starred review from Kirkus Reviews
We're excited that Peter's new book, I'm Here - received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews:
"This was written with autistic children in mind but encompasses a wider subject; any child who is isolated, introverted or simply self-contained will find something of him- or herself to recognize and appreciate here.
Overall, an excellent selection, replete with warmth, originality and the promise of good things to come."
Today Peter celebrated the launch of the NINETH Judy Moody book - "Girl Detective!" - at the Blue Bunny Books and Toys (the bookstore store owned by Peter and his family). Megan McDonald has written all the Judy Moody books, and Peter has illustrated them all!

H. Reynolds and Deval Patrick, the Governor

the cornerstones of school success.
Patrick offered the annual "State of the Commonwealth" address
to the citizens of Massachusetts. On the day after his speech, the Governor
visited the Greenlodge School in Peter's hometown of
Dedham, Massachusetts. At the request of State Representative Paul

child, and specifically, how the Massachusetts Readiness Project will meet that need. Knowing that he and the Governor share a similar
educational philosophy, Peter created a Civic Engagement poster, which
the Governor gladly signed and Peter donated to the Greenlodge School.
