#BookADay : THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT , written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers (Philomel/Penguin, 2013). I love this book so much it hurts. To my poslfriends from the U of T: YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. Ok, I'll calm down now.
Synopsis: "Crayons have feelings, too, in this funny back-to-school story illustrated by the creator of Stuck and This Moose Belongs to Me–now a #1 New York Times bestseller!
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?"
