Poor Duncan just wants to colour in. But when he opens his box of crayons, he only finds letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!
Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown, Blue needs a break from colouring in all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.
The battle lines have been drawn. What is Duncan to do?
"There are six people in my family, aged from five to forty-one, and we all laughed hysterically over a story about crayons that had had enough. They were fed up."
"The Day the Crayons Quit is a clever, creative and colourful exploration of, well, colour.
A fun and fabulous book for kids and adults alike, and sure to inspire some creativity afterward."
