Description
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 Star," "Stuck," and "This Moose Belongs to Me," "The New Sweater "proves that standing apart can be accomplished even when standing together.
