9780399173929: The Hueys in It Wasn't Me

#1 bestselling artist Oliver Jeffers delivers another hilarious Hueys board book!

Oliver Jeffers'  jelly bean-shaped creatures may all look the same, think the same, and even do the same things, but that doesn’t mean they always agree. The only problem is, they can’t seem to agree on what they disagree on! 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.

Praise for It Wasn't Me:

"Jeffers is a master of this sort of wry humor, with his deeply expressive gestures; generous, empty backgrounds; and quirky charm. The explosion of the argument--and stillness of the solution--resonates on just the right frequency, distilling complex emotion into something manageable and entertaining. Kids will recognize themselves here, over and over again." -Booklist 

"A stylish and sophisticated story that reminds readers that some fights aren't worth having." -Publishers Weekly

"Children will undoubtedly enjoy the simple, but expressive, caricatures and the childlike pencil and mixed-media compositions. Parents may get new ideas for conflict management under Gillespie's cool tutelage. A worthy sequel." -School Library Journal

In addition to illustrating the #1 blockbuster The Day the Crayons Quit, his books include How to Catch a Star; Once Upon an Alphabet; Lost and Found, which was the recipient of the prestigious Nestle Children’s Book Prize Gold Award in the U.K. and was later adapted into an award-winning animated film; The Way Back HomeThe Incredible Book Eating BoyThe Great Paper CaperThe Heart and the Bottle, which was made into a highly acclaimed iPad application narrated by Helena Bonham Carter; Up and Down, the New York Times bestselling StuckThe Hueys in the New Sweater, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year; and This Moose Belongs to Me, a New York Times bestseller. Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Oliver now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

From Booklist:

The Hueys (first introduced in The Hueys in the New Sweater, 2012) are back—in a bigger format and with a new quandary. The opening endpapers show our round, resolute friends having a conversation about how to address a pesky fly (the conversation, in typical Jeffers fashion, happens in pictures, not words). The story continues with five differently colored Hueys enthusing about all manner of flying objects, but soon, out of nowhere, discord arrives and an argument ensues. Just when things are at their most out of control, Gillespie Huey asks what everyone is fighting about. No one knows, so they decide to go look at a dead fly, content and collegial once more. Jeffers is a master of this sort of wry humor, with his deeply expressive gestures; generous, empty backgrounds; and quirky charm. The explosion of the argument—and stillness of the solution—resonates on just the right frequency, distilling complex emotion into something manageable and entertaining. Kids will recognize themselves here, over and over again. Preschool-Grade 1. --Thom Barthelmess
