The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers

The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers In the case of The Day the Crayons Quit, the writing and art style that Jeffers has fits perfectly with the storyline of letters written by crayons to their owner. As a concept, the book is a winner. I love to imagine inanimate objects having a life while you’re not looking, and getting letters from them as a child would be awesome.

The book includes ‘letters’ from red, purple, beige, grey, white, black, green, orange, yellow, blue, pink and peach crayons to a boy called Duncan complaining about their lot (over use, under use, repetitive use, nakedness etc) and beseeching him to improve their lives. Which he does, in a fab way.
