“Musket’s Big Adventure”
A new children's book from West Virginia University highlights the tale of a curious canine in search of a home and family at a place called the Gold-and-Blue Mountains. "Musket's Big Adventure," a 38-page, full-color title published by Mascot Books, reveals the origins of Musket, a dog created in 2012 and named by West Virginia child-care facilities and elementary schools. Proceeds from the book will benefit WVU Medicine Children's.
Known as the Mountaineer's little furry friend, Musket teams up with other critters in the book to overcome obstacles – one of which puts the pooch and our beloved buckskinned mascot in a precarious situation.
University Relations staff furnished the concept, writing, artwork and design of the book in-house.
