We’re wishing Oliver Jeffers and Drew Daywalt a very Happy Publication Day as the mind bogglingly brilliant The Day The Crayons Came Home is published today!!
I’m not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colourful bunch of characters! Having soothed the hurt feelings of one group who threatened to quit, Duncan now faces a whole new group of crayons asking to be rescued. From Maroon Crayon, who was lost beneath the sofa cushions and then broken in two after Dad sat on him; to poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan’s stinky socks after they both ended up in the dryer together; to Pea Green, who knows darn well that no kid likes peas and who ran away—each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
The Day The Crayons Came Home combines a hilarious text and joyful illustrations to show that crayons have feelings too in this laugh-out-loud sequel to the prize-winning, international bestseller The Day The Crayons Quit!
PS Don’t forget to turn the light out when you get to Glow In The Dark Crayon’s postcard – you’ll be in for a surprise!
