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.



Jarrett Pumphrey is an author/illustrator and the former cofounder and CEO of a tech startup. He lives in Austin, Texas.
