What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The companion to the #1 blockbuster bestseller, The Day the Crayons Quit! I'm not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colorful bunch of character. 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 Burnt Sienna, who was eaten by the dog and then puked up on the living room rug (NOT pretty, Duncan); to poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's 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, changing his name to Esteban the Magnificent?each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box. Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers have combined to create a companion book every bit as funny and kid-friendly as the #1 bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit. Praise for The Day the Crayons Quit The #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon?over 65 weeks on the bestseller list!
