The Hueys in the New Sweater - Oliver Jeffers I was worried at first. Would this be a message about acceptance and tolerance? No, it's about trendiness! I love the irony at the top of the story arc: Before long, they were all different and no one was the same anymore. I laughed out loud here.

The illustration style is a great postmodern use of the early child development phase where kids draw figures as loose circles with stick legs. Jeffers achieves tons of expression by leaning on these simple line drawings and using color only for the sweater.
