Praise for The Hueys In: The New Sweater
A NEW YORK TIMES BEST ILLUSTRATED BOOK OF THE YEAR!
* "The spare but adorable artwork makes this picture book work as a quirky diversion, but it doesn’t diminish the understated, deftly delivered lesson for those moments when kids need a nudge to help be themselves, or be OK when everyone else wants to be just like them." –Booklist, starred review
“The wordless ending to this ingenious meditation on thinking independently is funny, joyous, and a complete surprise.” –Horn Book
"The minimalist appearance of the Hueys will make them easy for kids to imitate artistically, and those who can't wait for the Hueys' next outing may want to create their own Huey-themed adventures." —BCCB
