Dog longs to visit the seaside. But the ocean is MILES away. “Impossible!” he sighs.

Then a lost crab appears and needs help to get home. Will Dog take this chance to make his dream come true?

Review by Stacey

Impossible! is a fun children’s picture book about a dog who has always longed to travel to see the ocean but from where he lives it would take him days to get there. He loves the ocean so much that he reads about it, collects boats, and being a laundrette he even purchases the new fragrance of washing powder, Ocean Magic, which gives off a scent on the clothes of the ocean air

One day after washing a load of clothes dog realises that there is a crab in his washing basket. The crab is upset and wants to go home. Dog offers to take him but then decides it is too far, it is impossible! Crab though tells dog that it is only impossible if he says it is. Dog decides to be brave and the two set off on their epic journey.

The story is so much more than just a dog wanting to see the ocean but being afraid to travel so far, it is about believing in yourself, adventure, and friendship. As the two new friends travel across the country they stop at some amazing locations and enjoy themselves and meet new friends too.

The book is a lot of fun and is highly illustrated too. I love the ‘photographs’ of dog and crab on their journey. Children will enjoy following their adventures and it will show them that sometimes you have to be brave and that the rewards can be tremendous.

This is an adorable book that I enjoyed from beginning to end. I also loved the ending. Made me very envious, especially when I haven’t seen the sea in over two years!
