The Day the Crayons Quit Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers read online review & book description:

The hilarious, colorful #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon that every kid wants! Gift a copy to someone you love today.

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! Blue crayon needs a break from coloring all those bodies of water. Black crayon wants to be used for more than just outlining.  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?

With giggle-inducing text from Drew Daywalt and bold and bright illustrations from Oliver Jeffers, The Day the Crayons Quit is the perfect gift for new parents, baby showers, back-to-school, or any time of year! Perfect for fans of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Sciezka and Lane Smith.

  • Great Book for the First Week of School

    By Emmy's Mommy😄
    Very creative story! I plan on using this book for the first week of school for my Kindergarten class. I want the students to take care of their supplies and use them correctly. This book will really get them thinking about how they use their crayons and creativity. We can also revisit this book for character point of view and letter writing.
  • Cute, kid witty & funny!

    By Yana2003
    Everyone who colors will relate to this book. The illustrations are cute & simple, but with 1,000 words. I'll probably have to read this every night for a while. Nice job!
