Houseboats, ferries, fishing boats, sailboats . . . see all the boats parade on the bay

Boats on the Bay is a large-format picture book about a bunch of boats found on a busy bay, buoyed by simple, spare, and lyrical text. Inspired by the San Francisco Bay but with universal appeal, the book features a spectacular double-spread gatefold finale showing a boat parade and fireworks glowing against a city backdrop.

Jeanne Walker Harvey lives in Sausalito, California, where she watches all of the boats on the bay from her house on the hill. She is the award-winning author of several picture books, including Maya Lin: Artist-Architect of Light and Lines; My Hands Sing the Blues, Romare Bearden’s Childhood Journey;Honey Girl the Hawaiian Monk Seal; and Astro the Stellar Sea Lion. In addition to being a writer, Jeanne is a docent at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
