LoveReading View on It Wasn't Me

Mostly the Hueys get along just fine. But occasionally, they do NOT!  When a big fight breaks out everyone says they are not to blame. Strangely, none of them can even remember what they are fighting about! In his simple illustrations, Oliver Jeffers captures the curious dynamics of falling out and making up perfectly.


It Wasn't Me Synopsis

A fight has broken out amongst The Hueys. It was not me! It was him! But no one can remember what they're fighting about. If only they could find an interesting distraction...

It Wasn’t Me is the second title in The Huey’s series. The first, The Hueys - The New Jumper, was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year, 2012.  Like all of Oliver’s work it is intelligent, thought provoking, great fun and will delight adults and children. The name is inspired by Oliver’s grandfather who could never remember the names of his numerous grandchildren and so called them all Huey, regardless of gender.

The first three - the "boy books" - feature a small boy who sets off on a series of daunting quests.
