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.
Robert Gernhardt (1937-2006) was born in Tallinn, Estonia and studied painting and German in Stuttgart and Berlin.

In 2001, his work earned him a place in the International Youth Library’s “White Ravens” Catalogue.
