The New York Times Best-Illustrated picture book, now available as a board book

The thing about the Hueys is . . . they're all the same. Until Rupert decides to knit a new sweater, which makes him . . . different. Suddenly every Huey wants a new sweater. It looks like being different is catching on

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 Star, Stuck, and This Moose Belongs to Me, THE NEW SWEATER proves that standing apart can be accomplished even when standing together.

Praise for The Hueys In: The New Sweater


* "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

"The wordless ending to this ingenious meditation on thinking independently is funny, joyous, and a complete surprise." -Horn Book

"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 may want to create their own Huey-themed adventures." --BCCB
