Sonia's Chickens by Camp Alum Phoebe Wahl


Phoebe Wahl has written and illustrated Sonia's Chickens a children's book published by Tundra in August.

"There's an old-fashioned feel to this simple story and its timeless illustrations, created with watercolor, collage, and colored pencil and reminiscent of Goodnight Moon in mood, design, and palette. Inside, Sonya's house is cozy and dark. In contrast, the world outside shine white, as background to text, with vignettes or a frame or portion of the opposite image spilling across the gutter." - Kirkus Reviews

An Alum of Oxbow's Summer Camp program, Phoebe attended Rhode Island School of Design graduating in 2013. Phoebe is a working artist - read her blog and visit her website.
