There’s a problem; Duncan can’t colour. HIs crayons have quit, each citing, page in turn, malpractice and abuse at his hands. Read their litany of complaints, from over, to under use, from misuse- yellow, orange or red for sun- to abuse for peach (the favourite page of all).
Drew Daywait’s ingenious idea has been brilliantly served by Oliver Jeffers’ illustrations that offer solid, picture evidence of the crayons’ ill-treatment. ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ is one of the most popular and unique picture books of the past decade, destined to loved and remembered for years to come, and meant to be included on every young reader’s bookshelf.
