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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Sometimes It's Storks

"A delight to read aloud, with stunning images that will add humor and surprise to storytime."--School Library Journal

"Kelly (Blanket & Bear, a Remarkable Pair) runs with the age-old legend of baby-delivering storks as two parents describe, in doggerel verse, their child's circuitous path to reach them."--Publishers Weekly

"[T]his adventure of a newborn baby, ordered by a mother and father for delivery to them by a stork, drifts by air, sea, desert, and even dogsled across a vividly scattered world of savory enchantments, before arriving safely in New York. Kelly steers a nimble path via rhyming quatrains... Meanwhile, the Brothers Hilts zoom with great panache from the epic double-page spread of a delicately soaring stork flock to the magnified detail of dad's pink-striped socks."--Booklist
