Baby delivery is a tricky business: When the top-notch stork is not available, a substitute has to step in. But a delicious looking fish distracts him, and he misplaces the baby en route. As one animal encounter leads to another, the baby travels the world: up to the North Pole atop a whale, to Australia with migrating geese, and to the Brisbane Zoo by kangaroo, before finally landing at home. In Sometimes It's Storks, L. J. R. Kelly and the Brothers Hilts offer a whimsical tale of animals and adventure, proposing a creative answer to the puzzling question of where babies come from.
L. J. R. Kelly is the author of the picture book Blanket and Bear. He is Managing Director of the literary estate of his grandfather, Roald Dahl. L. J. R. Kelly studied politics at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, and writing at Dartmouth College. He lives and works in London. The Brothers Hilts are Ben (the older one) and Sean (the younger one). They work as a team illustrating, designing and constantly comparing to see whose ideas are better. Sean went to Rhode Island School of Design and Ben went to Cooper Union in New York City. They now live and work in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
