Overview

Vincent Comes Home by Jessixa Bagley, Aaron Bagley

Jessixa Bagley, author and illustrator of Laundry Day, Before I Leave, and Boats For Papa (winner of the 2016 SCBWI Golden Kite Award for best picture book text) and Aaron Bagley (illustrator of Rocking Fatherhood) have been drawing and writing together since they met in art school more than a decade ago. What started off as a courtship of doodling in sketchbooks and belching in lockers soon turned into a marriage of doodling in sketchbooks and belching with their son.

Their artistic partnership is a balanced collaboration of overlapping their individual styles and painting techniques—creating one cohesive language. Vincent Comes Home is their first picture book together. And much like Vincent, they have moved around a lot but their home has always been each other.

This is a beautifully written story of a cat, Vincent, who lives aboard a cargo ship. After hearing the crew discuss their excitement about going Home, Vincent struggles to figure out what "home" means and faces the prospect that he doesn't have one. Jessixa and Aaron Bagley masterfully create a fun twist by using a bar of music sung (or hummed) by the captain. After Vincent reaches this dark moment, it is this refrain which signals the arrival of his captain and confirmation that Vincent does indeed have a home. This is a tender, genuine look at what "home" means - a place "where people who love you are." A fun story for those who love cats, travel, boats, and Puget Sound. In addition to peeks into the operation and activity of a cargo ship, the pen and watercolor images draw the reader through various exotic locations (tropics, arctic, and Mediterranean) and beautiful coastal towns.
