The Old Boat (Hardcover)
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!— Cam
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,

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.
