The Day the Crayons Quit is a hilarious book for children, written by Oliver Jeffers and Drew Daywalt. The duo team up to write an imaginative story about crayons. This book is entirely based on observational humour and children are going to be rolling with laughter when they read it. Apart from the adorable picturization of crayons throughout the book, it has been written in a playful letter format for little kids to enjoy.
One day, a boy named Duncan sits down with his colouring books and crayon set. All he wants to do is give life to his imaginations and colour his day away. However, when he opens his box of crayons, he finds nothing but a stack of letters.
The crayons have apparently written in protest of their stereotypical use and how they would like to be better utilized. For instance, pink wants to be used more, black wants to colour in playful things like beach balls and blue just wants a break from filling up all that water!
Soon, Duncan realises that this is war. What is a little boy supposed to do when his crayons quit? Find out how he solves the issue with The Day the Crayons Quit.
