We all have them every now and again, some more often than others. Those ‘cloudy’ days where everything feels grey and nothing seems to go your way, worrying thoughts wearing you down and taking away your joy in the little things. Bill is having one of those day too…
In Mr Huff we meet Bill and walk along with him on his cloudy day. ‘It’ is there from the moment he wakes and follows him around, growing a little bigger with every step. He tries to shake it off but Mr. Huff is just not leaving him alone!
Mr. Huff is an absolutely gorgeous picture book from the hand of one of Australia’s most favourite children’s book authors, Anna Walker. The illustrations are heartwarming, friendly and real and with few words the author manages to capture the attention of young readers, opening the dialogue about the worrying thoughts many kids struggle with. We all have a Mr Huff tagging along sometimes and we don’t always like it, but when you stop and face your Mr Huff you’ll probably find he’s not that bad at all.
