A boy and his grandfather set sail in the old boat catching waves and wishes. Soon the boy guides the boat on his own, away from home and the familiar. The Pumphrey brothers new picture book is a celebration of family and nature.— Rae Ann

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
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.
Jerome Pumphrey is an author/illustrator and a graphic designer at The Walt Disney Company. He lives in Austin, Texas.
