"One More Year, keep your stuff longer, people" is Tilly's mantra and passion as she trains for her first Ironman with her best-friend-coach, Camas. Set in an idyllic northwest town on a pristine glacier-formed lake, Tilly sets out to tackle an Ironman for an environmental cause to convince people to curb their overconsumption to give the planet a fighting chance. She doesn't know all three sports, so she relies on a curmudgeon former cyclist, her irreverent, tattooed, best-friend, Camas, a group of maverick mountain bike guys, an old pirate, and her water dog, Pedro, to overcome her obstacles and save the town.
One More Year is Book 1 of the Pedro the Water Dog Saves the Planet series, a read-in-an-afternoon novella-length adventure, filled with lovable, quirky characters in a candy wrapper of laughter, irreverence, kisses, friendship, satire, mountain bike jumps, love, and magnificent scenic beauty.
In these wonderful stories, Kalfsbeek addresses important environmental issues through the loving, gentle hands of a cast of characters that are easy to connect with. One wants to be part of this healthy gang; it is easy to fall in love with one or two of them. She has found an avenue to address these critical issues that must be talked about but without a heavy hammer. A delightful read that will fill you with hope and a forgotten bounce in your step, or pedal.
-Chris White, author of Wind, Waves and a Suicidal Boat
