About the Book and Author
This glossy picture book is about a shared journey. 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. By teaming up Dog and Crab achieve their shared goal.
With colourful almost comic-strip-style illustrations there is lots of action on every page to hold the interest of a child listening to this road-tip adventure. It is published by Little Tiger and will be a particularly popular choice with a child who likes vehicles like our 4 year reviewer Clark!
My favourite things in this book were the monster truck and the car
The dog thinks that going to the beach is impossible, but he finds a crab and the crab knows, and he says to the dog, “it’s only impossible if you say so”. And they go to the beach and it looks like they’re having a really good time but the dog says to the crab, “I need to go because I do have a home”. So then they have an idea and they sell drinks at a cafe on the beach.
The dog thinks he can’t get to the sea, but he can – this book should be called, ‘it’s easy!’. They look like they have a really nice time travelling and camping. My favourite things in this book were the monster truck and the car. I would like to be one of the animals having a drink at their cafe.
