The Day the Crayons Quit is a most imaginative book in terms of its story and its artwork. One day while looking in his crayon box, Duncan finds a stack of scrawled messages instead of crayons. One by one we read each color's reason for going on strike, written in its color. Red feels totally overworked. Purple is tired of contributing to messy pictures. Yellow and Orange cannot agree on who deserves to be the color of the sun. This is a young artist's worst nightmare. Read more at: http://www.librarypoint.org/day_the_crayons_quit_daywalt

I think I enjoyed it more than my grandkids!

Well written and very entertaining. My children loved it! My seven year old enjoyed the story more and my 3 year old enjoyed the illustrations more (he doesn't quite get the humor yet), but it was great fun to read together! The illustrations are great, kid-made (or at least looks to be that way). Highly recommend it! We plan on buying a copy to add to our home library. Would make an excellent gift too!

With "The Day The Crayons Quit," award-winning writer/director Drew Daywalt and New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers deliver a hilarious, playful story that will have children thinking about crayons in a whole new way. The charming illustrations come to life as each crayon lodges his/her complaint in protest. Orange and Yellow won't speak to each other over conflict about the true colour of the sun, Beige bemoans only being used to draw wheat and doesn't want to compete with Brown, Blue is tired of colouring lots of water and white doesn't even show up on most pages! Poor Duncan just wants to colour and must come up with a solution so that the crayons never think about calling it quits again. How will he make his crayons happy and get an A+ for colouring? Inviting and thoroughly entertaining, a highly recommended book for all children and child-care providers!
