It is nighttime and the fathers are coming home.
So begins this lyrical tribute to all the fathers everywhere who come home to their children from the rabbit father who hops home to his little bunnies, to the dog father who comes home to his puppies. A never-before published work from one of children's literature's greatest writers and masterfully illustrated by a "New York Times "bestselling artist, this poignant story concludes with a young boy whose father is a sailor coming home from the sea to his son.
