Mij Kelly
Biographical info

At age five British children's book author Mij Kelly just knew writing was her destiny.

The author of picture books such as William and the Night Train, One More Sheep, and Where's My Darling Daughter?, Kelly spins her simple stories in verse because, as she explained, "writing in rhyme makes it much easier to control the rhythm and therefore the way the story ultimately sounds. It doesn't matter whether it's a teacher, parent or older sibling who's going to be doing the reading, you want them to read with expression—you want them to declaim your story like an orator."
