About Peter Tye

There are quite a few Peter Tyes lurking around in the UK, across the pond in America and down under in Australia and New Zealand, but as far as I know, I'm the only one daft enough to believe it possible to earn a living from writing children's books. So for the avoidance of doubt, my name is Peter Geoffrey Tye. I grew-up in the Hampshire village of Hartley Wespall and joined the Royal Navy at the age of 15. One of my first tasks in the navy was to sew my name into every item of clothing in my kitbag and as my surname and initials total a measly 5 letters, I had an immediate advantage over my shipmates. They were called shipmates because HMS ST. VINCENT was a stone frigate! I had entered a strange, competitive world and came first at something for the only time in eight years of service. After the navy, I went on to have a career in marketing and writing for business, before producing Colin Reeder's much loved Little Red Tractor stories for television. Unfortunately, Colin died before we had the required number of episodes, so I wrote new stories to keep Little Red Tractor's animated wheels turning. I had unwittingly embarked upon a new career. As I switched from writing for company directors to writing for children, I was hard-pressed to notice the difference!

Review by: mary mags on Feb. 11, 2013 :
My children thought this story very funny, the idea of a musical bottom appealed to them. The author's idea of asking us to draw the pictures was OK. We had fun with that, but the results not good enough and I think the story would benefit from some quirky illustrations. Now we are having fun finding and listening to the music. In that respect the story is quite educational.
