"Children will undoubtedly enjoy the simple, but expressive, caricatures and the childlike pencil and mixed-media compositions. They will understand the author's humorous way of unveiling the silliness of certain conflicts. The silence at key junctures . . . will give viewers pause, too. Parents may get new ideas for conflict management under Gillespie's cool tutelage. A worthy sequel."--School Library Journal The companion to one of The New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2012: The Hueys in The New Sweater -- Oliver Jeffers
