Author Biography

I began writing while I was in high school. I wrote for my school magazine and newspaper. I was also on the yearbook staff for three years. I really liked taking the time to write each story well while having fun with the creative side of each project.

I also enjoy reading, collecting rare books and collecting advance reader copies of books already in print. When I am not reading I am watching movies, taking pictures, visiting art museums and going for walks in nearby parks and nature centers.

I live in Independence, Missouri with my wife of 29 years and our dog of 15 years.

Peaches! Peaches! is my first children's book.

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

“Peaches, Peaches” is an adorable story about a Dog named Gaston, a Parrot named Gregorie and a peach tree. Gaston was a very happy dog the day his master brought Gregorie home from the zoo in Paris. The green and red parrot had gotten sick at the zoo and needed a new home and someone that would care for him and love him. Gaston loved Gregorie from the start because he now had a new friend. Gregorie the parrot grew to love peaches, and there were always plenty of them because Mr. Marceau had fruit trees in his yard and one of them was a peach tree. Gregorie loved to ride on Gaston’s back through the fruit tree garden, and would always start yelling “Peaches, Peaches” as they neared the tree and could smell the sweet and wonderful fruit. But then the season was over for peaches, and there were no more. But that didn’t stop Gregorie from yelling “Peaches, Peaches” because that was what he wanted. So one day Gaston took Gregorie out on a ride, and rode much farther than before, and they finally found a tree with a few peaches on it. But Gregorie forgot about being careful, and something happened on their trip that both dog and parrot would never forget.

This wonderful book by Scott Ferrell will have your child laughing and wanting you to read it over and over. They will truly love the touching relationship between this special parrot and his doggie friend. The story is pretty short and simple, and is just right for the preschool age child. Though the illustrations are simple, I really like them. To me there is something about them that gives the story a warm and fuzzy feeling. And you will love the simplicity of the illustrations because they take much less space that the heavily illustrated books. I encourage you to grab a copy of this adorable book for your child’s library. This will truly be one of their favorites.
