Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit! Beige Crayon is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown Crayon. Black wants to be used for more than just outlining. Blue needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. And Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking— each believes he is the true color of the sun. What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best?

The Day the Crayons Quit is a fun, entertaining way to teach kids about cooperation. You see, crayons have feelings, too, in this funny back-to-school story illustrated by the creator of Stuck and This Moose Belongs to Me -- now a New York Times bestseller!

Kids will be imagining their own humorous conversations with crayons and coloring a blue streak after sharing laughs with author Drew Daywalt and New York Times bestselling illustrator Oliver Jeffers. Age range: 3 - 7 years.
