Local book author produces ‘Rasmoose the Christmas Moose’ • Idyllwild Town Crier

Helle Books LLC (www.HelleBooks.com), founded by Helle Brisson, inspirational Idyllwild speaker and book author, and Helle Urban, animation industry artist and children’s book illustrator, has published its first book featuring Rasmoose the MooseTM in a new book for the holiday season called “Rasmoose the Christmas Moose.”
The book is designed for children ages 5-8 and addresses the experiences of friendship, diversity, meeting and new friends as well as difficulties at this stage of childhood development, including clumsiness, family separation , insecurities and loneliness as they grow up.
Santa Claus and his elves are returning home to the North Pole after delivering gifts. They discover a young moose lost in an empty bag on their sled. What is he doing there? Santa Claus explains that he is at the North Pole and warmly welcomes Rasmoose to his new family and friends.
Find out how Rasmoose grows up to be the hero who saves Christmas – and it’s not by pulling the sleigh.
It’s not just a vacation story. The book teaches readers how kindness and initiative with new friends brings pleasure and personal growth.
“We bring Rasmoose the MooseTM to life in a variety of ways to engage readers young and old, so children around the world can connect with Rasmoose through beautifully illustrated books, rhyming text and an interactive website with children’s games and an original song,” said Brisson.
“Rasmoose, Amber, Santa and his team of elves leap from the pages to life in bright colors as they find fun and adventure. Every reader will enjoy this colorful book again and again. It will become the stone cornerstone of their vacation experience,” Urban said.
“Rasmoose the Christmas Moose” [ISBN: 978-0-9884387-8-1] is available from IngramSpark, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and booksellers worldwide.
