What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

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?

How is everything in this book true for every child ever? It’s hilarious and oh-so-clever, and a lot of fun to read. For bonus points with preschoolers, do each crayon in a different silly voice.
