Staff Reviews

Not only are the illustrations gorgeous in The Old Boat, they do most of the storytelling! The story follows a young man growing up with his grandmother enjoying the wonders of the ocean while they fish from a little old boat. Heart-warming and eco-friendly, this book deserves a spot on your shelf!

A New York Public Library Best Book of 2021

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.
