Staff Reviews


A boy and his grandmother set sail on an old boat. They travel into deeper waters and farther on the journey of life. The boy becomes a man and comes ashore on a new island, a new home. Honoring the passage of time, this soft book is great reading for multi-generational families.  ~ Eight Cousins, Summer Picks 2021

Description


The creators of The Old Truck set sail with an old boat and an evocative, intricately crafted exploration of home and family.


Off a small island,


an old boat sets sail


and a young boy


finds home.


Together, boy and boat ride the shifting tides, catching wants and wishes until fate calls for a sea change. Brothers and collaborators Jarrett and Jerome Pumphrey’s newest picture book is a masterfully crafted celebration of the natural world and tribute to the families we make and the homes that we nurture.
