Description


Vincent lives on a cargo ship.

His paws have never touched land. He spends his days chasing seagulls and eating fresh fish, and at night he stares at the stars that chart his ship’s course.

The cargo ship makes stops all over the world but it never stops at “home.” What is “home?” Vincent wonders. As the ship makes one final stop, Vincent takes his first steps on land and follows a crew member to his home.

Alone for the first time, Vincent wanders the city until he discovers the most important thing: Home is where the people you love are.

About the Author


Jessixa Bagley is an author and illustrator originally from Portland, Oregon. She spent many days in her childhood combing the Oregon Coast for the perfect sand dollar. Now, she lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and son in a castle in the sky. Her books include Boats for Papa and Before I Leave.

Aaron Bagley (illustrator of Rocking Fatherhood) has been drawing and writing with Jessixa Bagley (author and illustrator of Boats For Papa, winner of the 2016 SCBWI Golden Kite Award for best picture book text) 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.
