Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Have you ever wanted your very own star?

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have your own star for a nightlight? It is this thought that begins Hopper and Wilson's second adventure. They fill their airplane with lemonade and soar into the night sky. So many stars to choose from! One is too pointy. One is too heavy. Another is too bright! Taking a break on the moon, the two friends look directly above and spot it—the perfect star! As Hopper lays down for a nap, Wilson ventures off on his own, to the dark side of the moon. Yet now he is lost! How can he find his way back to Hopper?

The perfect star, of course. Wilson spots it in the sky and follows it back to his friend. In another deceptively simple story, Maria van Lieshout shows how sometimes the best part of nature is that it's found only in nature—and that everything has its proper place . . . be it stars or even best friends, who always belong together.
