Kevin Henkes
Author and illustrator Kevin Henkes had his first book, entitled ALL ALONE, published in 1981 when he was only 19 years old. Since then, he has become an enormously popular author of picture books and novels for middle-grade readers, notably the Newbery Honor Book OLIVE'S OCEAN. Many of Henkes's picture books, such as JULIUS THE BABY OF THE WORLD and LILY'S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE, feature the character Lily--a feisty white mouse.

In 2006, he received the Sterling North Legacy Award for Excellence in Children's Literature.
From the Publisher
Editors Note "Julius is the baby of the world", say his parents. Lilly, his older sister, thinks Julius is a disgusting germ. Her mind is made up until her cousin Garland says a thing or two, and Lilly has a change of heart. An ALA Notable Book; Horn Book Fanfare Book; and Storytime Selection. Full color.
Editors Note 1 The riotously funny Lilly, last seen in Chester's Way (Greenwillow), thinks her new baby brother, Julius, is disgusting--if he was a number, he would be zero. But when Cousin Garland dares to criticize Julius, Lilly bullies her into loudly admiring Julius as the baby of the world.Lilly knows her baby brother is nothing but dreadful--until she claims him for her own. "Henkes displays a deep understanding of sibling rivalry and a child's fragile self-esteem....Lilly is a superb and timely heroine."--Publishers Weekly. "
First Line Before Julius was born, Lilly was the best big sister in the world.
Annotation Although she eagerly anticipated his birth, Lilly the mouse is unhappy about the actual arrival of her new baby brother, Julius. Wondering why her parents are making such a fuss over him, Lilly feels jealous and declares Julius "a zero." However, when a cousin arrives for a visit and says some mean things about baby Julius, Lilly instantly comes to his defense and proudly proclaims that Julius is a wonderful baby--the "Baby of the World." Watercolor illustrations accompany the text. Just one of the many popular Lilly books.
