New children's book set on Mount Washington
The Adventures Of Mar & Jack is a new local children's adventure storybook inspired by the beautiful area we live in and what it has to offer.
Mar & Jack Cause A Rumble On Mt. Washington is the first book in a coming series about the friendship between a playful, cheeky whiskey jack and a shy, sensible marmot as they explore their backyard and beyond.
We felt strongly to keep everything about the process of bringing Mar and Jack to life as local as possible to show our pride and support for our community. We wrote and illustrated the book ourselves and had it printed locally.
Partial proceeds will be donated to local charities/fundraisers. The book has been very popular so far. Books already sold have made it possible for us to make our first donation to the Marmot Recovery Foundation.
Books are available at Blue Heron Books in Comox, Salmon Point Restaurant & Pub in Oyster Bay and Mid Island Gifts in the Comox Valley Airport with a few more outlets coming soon. You can find Mar & Jack on Facebook for updates.
We would like to have the opportunity to introduce more people in the community to The Adventures Of Mar & Jack.
