The Day the Crayons Quit

Drew Daywalt

Duncan sits down to color and finds a stack of letters written by very unhappy crayons: Red is overworked from too many fire trucks and Santas. Gray is exhausted from large spaces on elephants, rhinos, and whales. Black is tired of outlining and Peach cries "Why did you peel off my paper wrapping?" Duncan creatively saves the day for his striking crayons and he's able to enjoy drawing again. Debut author Daywalt has created a playful tale in collaboration with illustrator Oliver Jeffers (This Moose Belongs to Me, 2012) Ages 4-6
