What would you do if all of your crayons wrote you letters saying that they were going on strike? Purple Crayon says you don’t color inside the lines, and Gray Crayon thinks that you’re killing him with all of your big drawings! The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt, with illustrations by Oliver Jeffers, will make kids laugh and then probably start treating their crayons more nicely.
When Duncan opened his box of crayons – all he saw was letters from every crayon that used to be in box! Yellow and Orange were fighting about which one of them was the real color of the sun, and Black Crayon was tired of being used only to outline pictures! Duncan is going to have to be really creative and figure out a way to get all of his crayons back!
I liked this book because it was really funny. It was cool how the author was really witty with each of the crayons and created a different perspective for each one. And, I really loved the illustrations, because the way Oliver Jeffers drew Duncan’s pictures was really realistic. They looked just like how a little kid would draw it.
I would recommend this book to readers ages 4 and up. If you have read the book Don’t Let The Pigeon Ride The Bus I think you would like this book, too.
This book is cute! I would rate it three out of four roses.
