The Huey's in It Wasn't Me by Oliver Jeffers

We were really pleased to receive the latest offering by Oliver Jeffers. Especially as it features The Hueys.
Squeaks loved 'The New Jumper' and having be lucky enough to here the background of 'The Hueys' I was pleased to know we were getting to see them develop.

'It Wasn't Me' details how arguments develop... and the way Huey's resolve arguments.
As always, the illustrations were fantastic, the colours and layout make it a book Squeaks once again fell in love with.
There was one problem. Squeaks didn't get it. Everytime I've read it to her we've got into a bit of a discussion as to why mummy hasn't finished reading the book. We've gone back through the book to find the pages mummy's missed out. And we can't find them.
(Between you and me, I use this exact technique to diffuse squabbles between the little people, so Squeaks 'getting' the book would create more problems).

We do love the book, we love the illustrations, and like me, Squeaks loves the Huey's.
For me it's a chatty book rather than a bedtime story.

Disclosure: We received a copy of 'It Wasn't Me' for the purposes of this review. All views expressed are our own.
