The Day the Crayons Quit

The Day the Crayons Quit
Author: Drew Deywalt (Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers)

This is a beautiful picture book for children in the early years of school. My six and eight-year old children loved it so much they rewrote the story, with themselves as the owners of the rebellious crayons.

Poor, naked beige crayon, his overworked stubby friend, blue, and the others appeal to Duncan, their owner, through a series of humorous letters. It’s up to Duncan to decide just who is the true colour of the sun (orange or yellow) and how he can make all of his other crayons happy too.
