The Day the Crayons Quit

Book Details
Author: Drew Daywalt
Illustrator: Oliver Jeffers
Release Date: June 2013
Genre: Children's Picture Book

A new FAVORITE children's book!

Duncan just wants to color...
But when he opens the crayon box they have some news for him!

Red want to QUIT! Because Duncan uses him the most~ coloring fire engines, apples, etc. And he has to work holidays like Christmas and Valentine's Day. He NEEDS A REST!

Purple knows he is Duncan's favorite color and is called on frequently to color grapes, dragons, and wizard's hats. But he is COMPLETELY LOSING IT!

Gray complains "YOU'RE KILLING ME!" He always has to draw the big animals like elephants and HUMPBACK WHALES. He is so tired!

Pick up the book to see why beige, white, black, green, yellow, orange, blue, and pink have written letters of complaint...YOU WILL LOVE IT!

And wait until you read about the peach crayon...the one that is now embarrassed because Duncan peeled off his paper wrapping...SO FUN!

CUTE CUTE ending as Duncan finds a way to handle 'the day the crayons quit.'
