Editorial Reviews

Review

* A New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2012 *
(New York Times Book Review)

"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
(Booklist (starred review))

"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 (jacket copy indicates this is the beginning of a series) may want to create their own Huey-themed adventures."--BCCB
(Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)

My kids and I are huge fans of Oliver Jeffers books. When we saw that he had a new book coming out we got it right away! His books are always interesting. Artistically his work is unlike anyone else. It's whimsical, imaginative and creative. The stories are always a pleasure to read and a bit surprising. "The Hueys in the New Sweater" is much the same. It's a story about being different and trying something new even if it means standing out in a crowd. One Huey changed everything by simply going out on a limb and doing something that hadn't been done before.

A review from my 5 year old son - "I loved that the sweater changed everything and I loved all the other parts of it. That's how much I loved it!"

You can read this review and more on my blog, Caught Read Handed.

The Hueys are all the same: egg-shaped little dudes that all think the same way, do the same things, and look exactly the same. Until one day when Rupert knits himself a cool little orange sweater. Gasp! Rupert is different, and he is ostracized. That is until Gillespie (can I just take a moment to say how freaking awesome the names Rupert and Gillespie are for children’s book characters??) notices and thinks that being different is interesting. So what does he do? Why, he knits himself his own cool little orange sweater! Soon everyone is doing it and Rupert must find a new way to be different.

At first it seemed that Jeffers was commenting on the fact that it is almost impossible to be different in our society – where everyone will do the same thing if it is cool and everyone else is doing it. Everyone was being different but they were all doing it in exactly the same way. But then you reach the end and you flip the last page, and all of the Hueys are there in bright, vivid colors – all different! I think this one teaches kids how to be different by thinking outside of the box. Yes, there are trends and people like to fit in and do what others are doing, but you should be like Rupert. Be yourself, set trends, think outside the box. I still think Jeffers’ is commenting on society’s need to be different by being exactly the same, but I like the other theme too!

I find it frustrating that some reviewers don't see how clever this book is. I love it. It does a lot to examine how people/Huey's react to change or fear thereof. Do we only embrace change so that we are the ones who aren't different? Its a clever twist to the same ole " be unique" message. Its seems like some of reviewers missed the layers because they missed the irony. I used in to teach irony at school, and the kids loved it. They are 14. My son is 3 and he loves it. Layers!

Great to find books around knitting, making garments as way to teach kids about making things that are uniquely their own--although it was baffling that the illustrations show the other Hueys all knitted the exact same sweaters. But at the end, one of the Hueys knitted a completely different accessory, hat, with different colors...so at the end, the message got across! My niece loves the book.

Great book by Oliver Jeffers. He's an awesome illustrator. The Book was in excellent condition upon arrival, packaged and handled with care. Looks brand new, the binding crinkled even when I opened the pages. Awesome! I'll be adding this happily to my collection of favorite illustrator books!
