    DescriptionCrayons 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? Kids will be imagining their own humorous conversations with crayons and coloring a blue streak after sharing laughs with Drew Daywalt and "New York Times "bestseller Oliver Jeffers. This story is perfect as a back-to-school gift, for all budding artists, for fans of humorous books such as "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus "by Mo Willems and "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs "by Jon Sciezka and Lane Smith, and for fans of Oliver Jeffers' "Stuck," "The Incredible Book Eating Boy," "Lost and Found," and" This Moose Belongs to Me."

    Review quote
    "Jeffers delivers energetic and playful illustrations. The drawings are loose and lively, and with few lines, he makes his characters effectively emote. Clever spreads, such as Duncan's 'white cat in the snow' perfectly capture the crayons' conundrum, and photographic representations of both the letters and coloring pages offer another layer of texture, lending to the tale's overall believability. A comical, fresh look at crayons and color."--"Kirkus Reviews"
