The book about Elias - The little Rescue Boat -was first published in Norway in 1999. It became an instant hit and was embraced by the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue, which has since used Elias as a mascot. He is featured in their internet Elias Club, aimed at kids of all ages.

The little rescue boat starts his career in the charming costal village of Cozy Cove. Among the many colourful characters he encounters are the rough and tough deep sea fishing boat Trawler, who only cares about making money. The Singing Boathouses who comment on each day’s events a capella; and old Smacky who is mostly concerned about his tired hull and often falls asleep at sea. The rescue helicopter Helinor is a tough little gal who’s good at straightening things out. And far out by the open seas stands the lighthouse Big Blinky who’s been there as long as anyone can remember. Slowly but surely, Elias proves himself both trustworthy and brave, as he goes about saving one boat in dire straits after the other.
