My current favorite children book author/illustrator is Oliver Jeffers. I never heard of him until one day I bought this ‘The Hueys in The New Sweater’ book simply because I loved the cover. Turned out I really heart the illustrations. And I love the “start the difference” message too. :)
I also bought the iPad version of Jeffers’, ‘The Heart and The Bottle‘. It’s definitely one of the most beautiful and well written (modern) children books I’ve ever read.
Btw, you can take a peek of these little Hueys friends. Just watch this video. Sssh, it was read by one of those britain alternative sensations back in 90s. ;)
