Fjord’s Mountain Mission’ is a magical account of a real avalanche dog and his mission in the snowy mountains. Through his adventures, your children can learn the essentials before they head to the resorts for their winter holiday, empowering them to enjoy their trip to the full.
The book also has lots of helpful tips to keep safe and learn some fascinating facts about the life of a working avalanche dog and how to reduce your carbon footprint when visiting the mountains.
Caroline Elliott, a snow safety expert and French qualified ski patroller who specialises in promoting safety on the ski slopes for children, is raising funds for her book, Fjord’s Mountain Mission.
Caroline, who has been working with avalanche dogs for over 10 years, has also spoken extensively in schools and at winter sports industry events and conferences, including on the main talk stage at The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Festival in London.
The book will be published as an e-book version and then if the funding allows, there will be a print edition produced.
Evgenia Malina, a professional commercial artist, is creating the 64 illustrations that will bring the book to life and make it appealing to the target age group of children between 5 and 12 years of age.
Fjord, a French flat coated Retriever, sadly died in 2020, but his name and legacy lives on in Caroline’s book and on her website Fjordsar (fjordsar.com). Caroline is now training her new dog, Källa, who will follow in Fjord’s footsteps, helping children around the country to learn about how to stay safe on the slopes.
Caroline is hoping to raise £5,500 through a Go Fund Me page and is planning to release the book in time for the lead up to Christmas 2020.
All donators can opt to have their initials printed inside an individual snowflake on the inside cover.
The book will be translated later into German, French and other languages if there is a demand.
If the funds are raised in time the Children’s illustrated book will be ready for Christmas in E book and printed form.
