"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.
