Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This lively chapter book continues the adventures of Julian, younger brother Huey and the rest of their family. Ages 5-9. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Heidi Green
Growing up in an older sibling's shadow can be difficult, but the likeable Huey Bates is doing a tremendous job. These five realistic tales are the latest in Cameron's series of works about the Bates brothers, including The Stories Julian Tells, More Stories Julian Tells, and The Stories Huey Tells. Here, Huey works to save his dying sunflowers, triumphs at basketball, and imagines the wonders of the universe. He also experiences disappointment, as his father struggles to quit smoking, and danger, when an innocent adventure leaves him trapped at the bottom of a crumbling mine. Readers should enjoy this warm-hearted, authentic portrayal of family life.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3A beginning chapter book with funny episodes. Readers first met this spirited boy growing up in the loving African-American family in The Stories Huey Tells Knopf, 1995 and the books about his older brother, Julian. Now, in an effort to perk up his dying sunflowers, Huey buries sugar, coffee, vitamins, and tuna fish in his garden. When Julian refuses to share a new basketball hoop, Huey invents a string divider. The family throws a backyard party with an astronomy theme. Throughout the book, parents are featured in starring roles. The last chapter involves a tense scene in which a mine shaft the children have zealously dug too deep threatens to collapse with Huey inside. Huey's father is the hero, not only when he rescues his son, but also when he lectures the children about the dangerous situation but retains respect for the joy they had in digging for gold. He also succumbs to his family's concerns and decides to quit smoking. Huey's straightforward narrative gives a realistic view of a child's world in language that emerging readers can easily grasp. The children in Toft's expressive illustrations complete a package certain to elicit smiles.Jackie Hechtkopf, Talent House School, Fairfax, VA
Kirkus Reviews
Five new linked short stories about Huey, Julian, and family from Cameron (More Stories Julian Tells, 1986, etc.).

With sugar, coffee, tuna, vitamins, and music, Huey tries to save his sunflowers, which are wilting at the end of the season. He also argues with his brother over sharing a basketball, works to get his father to quit smoking, has an astronomy party with his father (who is taking a college course), and digs for gold. It may sound similar to Ramona Quimby's territory, but it's not, for Huey is not as honestly inventive as Ramona, and his trail of misunderstandings is less interesting. The tales, instead, flow without necessarily taking readers anywhere. Pretty tame stuff.
