The Day the Crayons Quit

Front cover with disgruntled crayons illustrated

Crayons have feelings too! This hilarious book will appeal to big and small kids alike. As it takes a comical fresh look at crayons and colour, children will be able to follow along with the story, and colour in the raised line pictures provided. This popular book was named Amazon and Goodreads best picture book of 2013, and won National Choice award in 2014. This is a shared reading title with print and braille.

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? A perfect book for fans of humorous stories, and budding artists alike.

This book has been adapted to include contracted braille on interleaved clear sheets, allowing the print text and images to be seen underneath and the book to be enjoyed by everyone.

Supplied with a crayon organiser, crayons, and two tactile pictures for colouring in.
