Stephen Mitchell Profile Picture

Stephen Mitchell is a renowned writer, translator, and anthologist. His more than thirty books for adults and children include THE NIGHTINGALE (a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story),
as well as translations of Rilke, Genesis, and the TAO TE CHING. This is his first collection of poems for children. Of the poems in THE WISHING BONE, he says,
"They’ll tell you all you need to hear,
They’ll whisper to your inner ear,
And sometimes they will make you laugh As if you saw a pink giraffe Tap-dancing with a tuna fish.
They make no bones: Their dearest wish Is that you like them. If you do,
Then (naturally) they’ll like you."

Tom Pohrt has illustrated many children’s books, including the best-selling CROW AND WEASEL by Barry Lopez. He is a self-taught artist. This is his first book with Candlewick Press.
