K-Gr 2—Familiar from their debut in The Hueys in the New Sweater (Philomel, 2012), the oval creatures with the stick appendages are back. Five excited Hueys are talking into a single speech bubble about a fly buzzing by. One of them has a flyswatter. They are then depicted conversing about other winged things: a bird, teacup, horse, and elephant. When the bubble turns stormy, Gillespie (who appears to be the mature one) interrupts the group to discover the cause of their argument. The blame game goes on heatedly for several spreads, until he tries again. The page turns white with silence; they are stumped. By the time their friend asks: "Want to see a dead fly?" everyone runs to look, distracted from their discord. The action takes place against solid, mostly white backgrounds, with the eye being drawn first to the graphically dynamic conversation bubbles. Children will undoubtedly enjoy the simple, but expressive, caricatures and the childlike pencil and mixed-media compositions. They will understand the author's humorous way of unveiling the silliness of certain conflicts. The silence at key junctures, including the scene with individual reactions to the dead fly, will give viewers pause, too. Parents may get new ideas for conflict management under Gillespie's cool tutelage. A worthy sequel.—Wendy Lukehart, District of Columbia Public Library
