Review by Publisher Summary 1

As his doggy friends watch from the shore, too afraid to join him, brave Captain Olly embarks on a hazardous journey to America in a rubber dinghy alone. This humorous tale of courage and perseverance in the face of adversity is written in an engaging rhyming style. The story shows children that, to achieve your goals, it's important to properly weigh the risks and plan accordingly.
