The Day the Crayons Quit, by Drew Daywalt, is a hilarious tale about the day the crayons have just had enough! This awesomely original story is clever, laugh-out-loud funny, and perfectly illustrated. The story begins with Duncan taking out his box of crayons only to find a stack of letters. Each letter, written by a different colored crayon, tells of that crayon's woes, complaints, and demands.This book is just too cute and entertaining! Like me, younger readers will love how each crayon has its own wildly fun personality, from overworked Red to neat freak Purple to overlooked White to poor, naked Peach, and every other color in between. Little readers will laugh at the book's silliness and root for their favorite crayons.Oliver Jeffers' spectacular and whimsically child-like illustrations are the perfect companion to Daywalt's story. Jeffers does a fantastic job of bringing each crayon to life and creating vivid eye-catching pictures.The Day the Crayons Quit will appeal to readers of all ages (it had this “grown-up” completely enchanted), and will definitely be a big hit amongst little readers!
