Since then, Peter has been shortlisted for countless awards for his picture books, and his books have continued to create lovable characters, important sentiments and tiny figures of inspiration.

Peter uses humour with deft aptitude to begin an important conversation about depression.Blue Whale Bluesis illustrated with a mixture of traditional watercolour and collaged media, and includes a musical recording of Peter's original composition as accompaniment.
