Mr HUFF by Anna Walker



     Anna Walker has created another gem with her beautiful Picture Book titled Mr Huff. The emotions that accompany a bad day are explored gently with lovely hints of humour. The hope of a better tomorrow is very touching. Here is what Joseph (aged 6) had to say.

     “A Boy is sad in the beginning because annoying things happened to him. A cloud (Mr Huff) that is made of sadness and worries starts to follow him. Mr Huff gets bigger and bigger and bigger! Then the boy feels happy and the cloud gets smaller. My favourite part was when Mr Huff follows the boy into the toilet and when he is in the bathtub too! I also like Mr Huff under the bed because Mr Huff won’t go away! The best bit is when Mr Huff is very small and the clouds outside the window go away and the boy can go out to play with his friends.”

    Thank you to the lovely people at Penguin Books Australia for sending us a copy of Anna Walker's latest Picture Book.
