  • The Fathers Are Coming Home (Margaret K. McElderry, 2010) is the latest children’s book illustrated by alumnus and BFA Illustration and Cartooning Department faculty member Stephen Savage (MFA 1996 Illustration as Visual Essay). The book, with text from a posthumously discovered manuscript by Goodnight Moon author Margaret Wise Brown, tells the story of a sailor returning to his son after being away at war. Alongside the human story, Savage and Brown show the universal nature of the emotional connections between parent and child as a number of animal and insect fathers also come home to their children.
