Fun read. Great for kids 4 to 6.

After embracing sartorial individuality in The New Sweater, the round, nearly-identical Hueys are back, and they're not getting along very well. A simple discussion about a buzzing fly escalates into a highly visual argument: the faces of the fighting Hueys become increasingly distressed, their speech bubbles growing chaotic and scribbly, until a Huey named Gillespie approaches and innocently asks them WHY they're fighting. Chagrined, the Hueys stand in silence -- they can't remember. As it turns out, the problem that started the argument has resolved itself: "Want to see a dead fly?" asks Gillespie with morbid, childlike glee. The Hueys all respond enthusiastically, and harmony is restored.
