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?
Kids will be imagining their own humorous conversations with crayons and coloring a blue streak after sharing laughs with Drew Daywalt andNew York Timesbestseller Oliver Jeffers. This story is perfect as a back-to-school gift, for all budding artists, for fans of humorous books such asDon't Let the Pigeon Drive the Busby Mo Willems andThe True Story of the Three Little Pigsby Jon Sciezka and Lane Smith, and for fans of Oliver Jeffers'Stuck,The Incredible Book Eating Boy,Lost and Found, andThis Moose Belongs to Me.
