Dog longs to visit the ocean, but it is MILES away. "Impossible!" he sighs. After using a new laundry soap called "Ocean Magic" a crab appears and needs help getting home. Will Dog take this chance to make his dream come true?
Crab wants to get back to the ocean, but it is miles away! Dog has always wanted to go, and this may be his chance to take a road trip to the ocean with Crab, but it's impossible! Or is it?
What I loved: The story is really cute and delightfully fun. Dog is a character that adults can definitely empathize with, and his story is really relatable, even for young children. Readers will squeal with delight as Dog overcomes all the obstacles he thinks are in his way to achieving a life he loves. This optimistic tale tells children that their dreams are in reach.
The illustrations are cartoonish and full of bright colors and fun details. This world of animals is delightful to look through, and the story really comes to life in the pictures.
What left me wanting more: As a small point, some of the transitions are rather sudden, which is juxtaposed with others being in detail. Softer transitions would be nice, rather than an almost smash cut switch.
Final verdict: A book about overcoming obstacles to reach for your dreams, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE! is a delightful road trip picture book that will appeal to young readers and their caregivers alike. As a note, this book would be ideal for preschool-aged children and older.
