About Jenny Read Stout

Jenny Read Stout grew up mostly barefoot in a place where the Santa Ana winds meet the coastal fog. She spent much of that time drawing pictures, reading books, and telling her wildly vivid dreams to anyone who would listen.

After traveling the world and trying on many different shoes, Jenny returned to her original passion- storytelling through art. She has been a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators since 2015.

Jenny lives just outside of Portland, Oregon with her best friend, their two kiddos, and a few four-legged critters.
