Before concentrating on creating books for children and young adults, Phoebe Stone had a very successful career established as a fine art's painter. During that time, she received two Vermont Council on the Arts Fellowships in painting and exhibited her work in many museums and galleries all around New England and New York City, and influenced many New England artists with her unique, brightly colored narrative and metaphorical style. "I was already working in sequences," she says, "but at some point I began to realize that I could combine my love for images and words in picture books for children."

Phoebe's picture books include When Wind Bear Goes DancingWhat Night do the Angels Wander, and Go Away, Shelly Boo!  Original art from When Wind Bear Goes Dancing was included in the Society of Illustrators' Original Art '97 show.  Go Away, Shelly Boo! was chosen as an American Bookseller Association's Pick of the Lists.

She has also written three novels, All the Blue Moons at the Wallace HotelSonata #1 for Riley Red, and Deep Down Popular.  The New York Times said of All the Blue Moons at the Wallace Hotel, "Stone's prose is poetic."  The Boston Globe said of Sonata #1 for Riley Red, "Literature doesn't get much better than this."

Phoebe Stone lives in Middlebury, Vermont.
