Publisher Comments:

A brand-new series and cast of characters from the mind of Oliver Jeffers.

The Hueys are small and mischievous, unique compared to the world's other creatures — but hardly unique to one another. You see, each Huey looks the same, thinks the same, and does the same exact things. So you can imagine the chaos when one of them has the idea of knitting a sweater! It seems like a good idea at the time — he is quite proud of it, in fact — but it does make him different from the others. So the rest of the Hueys, in turn, decide that they want to be different too! How? By knitting the exact same sweater, of course!

The first in a series of child-and-consumer-friendly books, Oliver Jeffers proves that standing apart can be accomplished even when standing together.

Review:

"First in a planned series, Jeffers's (Stuck) small-scale fable is equal parts whimsy and skinny-tie sophistication. Low-key pencil drawings, sleek typography, and a smart layout deliver the sophistication, and the Hueys contribute the whimsy. Like the crowd-pleasing minions in the film Despicable Me, the Hueys are egg-shaped beings who speak in monosyllables ('eh?' 'oh!') and enjoy a genial if colorless existence. 'The thing about the Hueys... was that they were all the same,' writes Jeffers. Then a Huey named Rupert subverts the social contract by knitting a bright orange sweater with a zigzag pattern. Appalled, the other Hueys glare at Rupert as he walks past in his sweater, whistling nonchalantly. Soon the rest of the Hueys start knitting sweaters, too: 'Before long, they were all different, and no one was the same anymore.' It takes yet another daring sartorial move by Rupert to lead the Hueys to authentic individuality at last. The story is over almost as soon as it has begun, a polite salute to liberated thinking that delivers its message with a feather-light touch. Ages 3 – 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

What's all the arguing about? There are plenty of Hueys to go around in this hilarious story from New York Times bestselling author and artist Oliver Jeffers — now in a new oversized trim with jacket!

The Hueys are back! Oliver Jeffers'  egg-shaped creatures may look the same, think the same, and even do the same things, but that doesnt mean they always agree. The only problem is, they cant seem to agree on what they disagreed on in the first place! Which ultimately leads to an even bigger disagreement! Confused? Well, so are the Hueys. Which only adds to the fun and hilarity.

Anyone who has ever had to referee an argument among siblings or friends will appreciate the absurdity Oliver Jeffers reveals in the every-day trials of getting along. Oliver Jeffers is the New York Times bestselling author of Stuck, The Incredible Book-Eating Boy, Lost and Found, How to Catch a Star, Up and Down, The Heart in the Bottle (which is also a highly-acclaimed iPad app narrated by Helena Bonham Carter) and many more. His books have won numerous awards, including the Nestlé Childrens Book Prize Gold Award, the Blue Peter Book of the Year, and the Irish Book Awards Childrens Book of the Year.

I'm ordering this for a new niece (new to me, but not a brand new person) but I wish I were getting it myself.

"Before long they were all different, and no one was the same anymore."

Perhaps the most perfect line ever written. This is a simple, sweet, charmer. Perfect for the 2-7 year old on your list. Or maybe for you.
