Overview

The New York Times Best Illustrated Picture Book, now in an oversized trim for added value and fun!

The Hueys are small and mischievous, unique compared to the world's other creatures--but hardly unique to one another. You see, each Huey looks the same, thinks the same, and does the same exact things. So you can imagine the chaos when one of them has the idea of knitting a sweater! It seems like a good idea at the time--he is quite proud of it, in fact--but it does make him different from the others. So the rest of the Hueys, in turn, decide that they want to be different too! How? By knitting the exact same sweater, of course!

The first in a series of child-friendly concept books by the #1 bestselling artist of The Day the Crayons Quit, How to Catch a StarStuck, and This Moose Belongs to Me, The New Sweater proves that standing apart can be accomplished even when standing together.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
* 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
