Description - The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt

The Number One New York Times Bestseller!

Debut author Drew Daywalt and international bestseller Oliver Jeffers team up to create a colourful solution to a crayon-based crisis in this playful, imaginative story that will have children laughing and playing with their crayons in a whole new way.

Poor Duncan just wants to colour in. But when he opens his box of crayons, he only finds letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!

Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown, Blue needs a break from colouring in all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.

The battle lines have been drawn. What is Duncan to do?

Book Review: Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt - Reviewed by (16 Aug 2013)

I have not been able to put this book down at home. Both my 2-year-old daughter and my 7-year-old daughter have made me read it almost every night for a week. Illustrated by one of my favourites, Oliver Jeffers, this picture book is told in letters by individual crayons to their owner Duncan.

Red complains that he is over used, Purple is upset that Duncan won’t colour within the lines, Beige is sad that there is nothing for him to colour, Grey wants a break from colouring big animals, White feels empty and Black doesn’t want to do outlines, Green is happy but wants Duncan to settle a dispute between Orange and Yellow over which colour is the colour of The Sun, Blue is concerned that he is almost a stub and Pink thinks she is being overlooked because Duncan is a boy. And lastly Peach doesn’t want to leave the crayon box because Duncan peeled his label off and now he’s naked.

Of course this picture book is bursting with colour especially after Duncan responds to the crayons concerns. A bright, vibrant, clever and funny picture book everyone can enjoy!
