    A reviewer

    Here's a great little book that can help spark a child's interest in getting out into the mountains. The author, Mark Seaton, is a real British Mountain Guide. He and David Bennett, a publisher of children's books, conceived the book while they climbed Mont Blanc together. Graham Philpot, a gifted and prolific children's artist best known as the creator of Antony Ant, illustrates the books. The quintessential British Mountaineer Sir Chris Bonington provides the book's introduction and the International Federation of Mountain Guides Association [IFMGA] offers their seal of approval to the technical section at the end of the book. Most of the characters are engaging animals, including Leo the Mountain Dog and three little Marmot Mountaineers. The book's illustrations are delightfully evocative watercolors of mountain scenes and climbers, full of the detail that kids love to explore. They include a map and an introductory overview of all the places visited in the story. My personal favorite is a two-page spread of stars and a glowing igloo perched above a moonlit fairytale landscape of steep ice, rock and snow. At the end of the story, an instructional section explains more about some of the phenomena encountered along the way, including child-friendly explanations of what causes an avalanche, how mountains are formed and why stars are so bright at altitude. A glossary defines mountain-related words from the story, including terms like avalanche, crampon, gorge, glacier and mountaineer. This section also includes practical information to get kids started on their mountaineering careers, like how to build an igloo, what a mountaineer wears and carries in his pack, and how to tie a couple of useful knots. To facilitate this particular skill, the book includes a toy carabiner and a length of accessory cord.
