From the Publisher"small gem of a picture book...The idea seems simple, but the interplay between text and pictures is adroit and simply beautiful." Horn Book Guide
A modest lullaby sung by a mother to her child at bedtime, telling of a fisherman returning home after a long sojourn at sea. His boat doesn't just sail into harbor; it floats through forests and over fields, climbs stony paths, and soars across the night sky. When the sailor comes through the door, it's clear he's returning to the family, evoked from the mists by the mother's singing. Vitale's artwork on wood characteristically fuses various styles for images of the little family at home and the seafarer on his journey.
