Summary "In his rubber boat Olly sails away, heading for the USA. But it's not as easy as he thinks. What will he do if the dinghy sinks?"--Page [4] of cover.
"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."--Description from publisher.
