Mr Huff

By Anna Walker

Penguin Books Australia

ISBN 9780670078042

I have been a huge fan of Anna Walker’s work for some time now. My favourite book so far is  Peggy blogged about in a previous post. However, after checking out this new trailer for her latest book I may end up with two faves.

I love the style of her illustrations. There is a softness to them that draws you in and connects you with the characters in her stories.

“Bill is having a bad day.

Mr Huff is following him around and making everything seem difficult.

Bill tries to get rid of him, but Mr Huff just gets bigger and bigger!

Then they both stop, and a surprising thing happens . . . ”

We all have days where we struggle just to cope and we all have days when we sometimes need a little reminder of how good things really are. I just know this book is going to be one of those good things. I will certainly be looking out for this one when it hits our shores in a few weeks.

Check out the trailer and watch for Mr Huff’s smile when it comes after the tears. Just gorgeous!
