Elgin The Little Troll has just been released on Amazon after the Corporal was spurred on by the success of his first book, Chem Cloud, which teaches children about the environment.
Peter, who has served with the Army for 19 years and lives in Gütersloh, took three months to write his latest book.
He said: “My publisher loved this book and decided to publish it too, although it has taken a year to have it ready.”
The children excitedly said “everything” when asked what they liked best about the week and loved showcasing their week’s work to their family.
The former Lance Corporal and physical training instructor fell in love with local woman Franziska on a visit to Tirol 12 years ago and decided to stay.
Howie and Franziska, who have three children, run a guest house called Schöne Aussicht (Beautiful View) in the Stubai valley, just south of Innsbruck.
But the sporty couple are more than just hosts – they offer a smorgasbord of sporting activities for guests to enjoy – for both individuals and families.
