“Once upon a time there was a dream, a dream that tried to take shape…”
About The Almost Impossible Thing:
The idea behind Basak Agaoglu’s ethereal debut picture book, THE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE THING, was born after Basak got stuck on a mountain for a week during the Nepal earthquake. Through this pivotal life event, she gained some perspective, and decided to move back to Brooklyn to pursue her dream: illustrating a children’s book.
A tribute to teamwork and big dreams, THE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE THING shows that with a little perseverance, even the most outlandish ideas can become a reality.
When a bunny spots a bird flying, making colorful loop-de-loops in the air, a dream is born – she decides she is going to fly too! But it’s not a task that can be accomplished alone. From page to page, each new bunny trains to strengthen a skill set. Through comical ski jumps, trampoline bounces, swings on the trapeze, and experiments with kites, somehow, some way, there must be a way to fly.
And there is! Teamwork.
