Oliver Jeffers introduces us to The Hueys in The Hueys in The New Sweater (or The Hueys in The New Jumper for our friends in the UK). “The thing about the Hueys was that they were all the same,” Jeffers tells us. The Hueys all look the same, think the same, and act the same. Except for Rupert. One day, Rupert decides to knit a sweater. A bright orange sweater! With red and white zig-zag stripes! And he wears it! In front of everyone! The Hueys are scandalized. What is wrong with Rupert? Doesn’t he want to be the same as everyone else? Rupert runs into his friend Gillespie. And Gillespie thinks being different… sounds interesting! So he makes himself a matching sweater. When the Hueys see Rupert and Gillespie in their sweaters together, they start to think maybe being a little different isn’t such a bad idea after all. Will Rupert’s trend-setting style start a fashion revolution, and rock the Hueys’ world? Find out when you read about The New Sweater! See this book listed in our catalog
