The Hueys Series

Oliver Jeffers
The Hueys are small and mischievous compared to the world’s other creatures—but hardly unique to one another. That’s because the Hueys all look the same, think the same, and do the same exact things. Right? Maybe not… Introducing a new cast of characters from #1 New York Times bestselling author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers.

The Hueys Series : Titles in Order

Book 4
Explore the humorous world of opposites with the #1 bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit and his band of Hueys!

“What’s the opposite of the beginning?” A sensible question to ask when opening a book that teaches the reader about opposites. But maybe we should start with something a little easier? For example, it’s quite unlucky when a Huey finds himself stranded on a hot, deserted island—but how lucky it is when a fan arrives to provide some cool air! Oh, wait . . . nowhere to plug it in? Unlucky, once again. Now for a harder one: What’s the difference between half full and half empty?

Stumped? Don’t worry, that one will make a Huey’s head hurt too.

In this funny concept book from the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit, Oliver Jeffers takes us on a delightful ride through the world of contraries. 

Praise for The Hueys in What’s the Opposite?

* “Even readers who know the basics of opposites will get their minds blown here, as a glass is considered half full on one page but also half empty on the next. It’s not easy to be so very simple and so very clever, but Jeffers manages in this laugh-aloud offering that will get groups giggling.”—Booklist, starred review

* “An amusing twist on the traditional concept book by a beloved master of shape and line.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“A clever concept book from beginning to end.”—Kirkus Reviews
Book 3
Learn to count with the #1 New York Times bestselling artist of The Day the Crayons Quit and his hilarious cast of Hueys!
“Is none a number?” you might ask. I’m glad you did. The answer is Yes! For example, how many lumps of cheese do you see next to you? The answer, depending on where you are, is likely “none.” Counting with the reader all the way up to ten, the Hueys explain numbers as only they can. Such as: The number 4 is the number of tantrums thrown by Dave every day. 7 is the number of oranges balanced on things. And 9 is the number of seagulls who attacked Frank’s French fries. Together they make quite a spectacle. But when you take away all of these fun illustrations in the book? You’re left with none!

This funny and accessible counting book from #1 New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers (The Day the Crayons Quit; This Moose Belongs to Me) gives the Hueys one more reason to be every young child’s best friends.

Praise for NONE THE NUMBER

“Delightfully droll and enlightening . . . . The illustrations, ‘made with pencils and a bit of color’ on large white pages, are deceptively simple and ridiculously funny.”–School Library Journal
Book 2
What’s all the arguing about? There are plenty of Hueys to go around in this hilarious story from the #1 bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit!

The Hueys are back! Oliver Jeffers’  jelly bean-shaped creatures may look the same, think the same, and even do the same things, but that doesn’t mean they always agree. The only problem is, they can’t seem to agree on what they disagreed on in the first place! Which ultimately leads to an even bigger disagreement! Confused? Well, so are the Hueys. Which only adds to the fun and hilarity.

Anyone who has ever had to referee an argument among siblings or friends will appreciate the absurdity Oliver Jeffers reveals in the every-day trials of getting along.

Oliver Jeffers is the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of Stuck, The Incredible Book-Eating Boy, This Moose Belongs to Me, Lost and Found, How to Catch a Star, The Heart in the Bottle (which is also a highly-acclaimed iPad app narrated by Helena Bonham Carter) and many more. He is also the ilustrator of the mega-selling The Day the Crayons Quit, written by Drew Daywalt. His books have won numerous awards, including the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Gold Award, the Blue Peter Book of the Year, and the Irish Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.
Book 1
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.
