About the Store

Peter opened a bookshop in Dedham in 1998 to fix a glaring problem: There was no bookshop in his hometown.  Originally only 800 square feet and called the Blue Bunny after local famed Dedham pottery, the store is now 2000 square feet and managed by his daughter, Sarah Reynolds.

Peter's mission to foster a better place not only saw him open the bookshop but also to found the Dedham Square Circle to be an positive agent of change for his home town.  Shopkeepers, building owners, residents and Town Hall are galvanized to help make Main Street thrive.

In 1996, he founded FableVision with his twin brother, Paul, as a social change agency to help create “stories that matter, stories that move.” The company is located in Boston above the Children's Museum and is highly regarded in the production of educational interactive media.  The sister company FableVision Learning provides educational tools to foster creativity in teachers and the classroom, with curriculum, products, professional development and workshops.

Peter lives in Dedham, Massachusetts, with his family.
