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.

"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
