Description
(Shortlisted for the 2014 Kate Greenaway Medal) Poor Duncan just wants to make a crayon drawing in class. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds a packet of notes, each written in a different color, and each a complaint from one or another of his crayons. Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Black wants to be more than just outlines. Blue needs a break from coloring all those oceans, lakes, and rivers, while Pink just wants to be used. And Orange and Yellow are fighting over which is the true color of the sun. You may never look at your own crayons the same way again. This debut children's book from television and film writer Drew Daywalt, for readers up to 7, is rendered in hilarious kid-style crayon drawings by Oliver Jeffers, the illustrator who gave us This Moose Belongs to Me and The Incredible Book Eating Boy.

"Making a noteworthy debut, Daywalt composes droll missives that express aggravation and aim to persuade, while Jeffers's crayoned images underscore the waxy cylinders' sentiments: each spread features a facsimile of a letter scrawled, naturally, in the crayon's hue; a facing illustration evidences how Duncan uses the crayon, as in a picture of a giant elephant, rhino, and hippo (Gray laments, 'That's a lot of space to color in all by myself')."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
