Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!
Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Blue needs a break from coloring all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.
What is Duncan to do?
This book is extremely creative and unique. Crayons writing letters to their owner complaining about being used too much or not being used enough and more. As an artist I know that some colors are used more than others.
The artwork is perfectly childish and the crayons themselves are adorable.
Duncan’s crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters. Having soothed the hurt feelings on 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 Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan’s stinky socks after they ended up in the dryer together.
This story features the lesser known/used crayons you get in those 96 crayon boxes.
You know all those crayons you lose when you’re on vacation or at a restaurant or when they roll under the bed and you’re too lazy to get them. This story shows what crayons go through when we forget about them.
It’s hard to believe that this book is even more unique than the last one.
And just for fun here’s a Baby Blues comic featuring crayons:
