The Day the Crayons Came Home


"Both Neon Red and Glow in the Dark [crayons] are reproduced with astounding vibrancy, and readers who turn out the lights while viewing Glow in the Dark's postcard are in for a real surprise. This new cast of crayons will entertain readers, and admirers of the first book will be pleased to see a few familiar colors."–Kirkus Reviews

I'm not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters! 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 poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's stinky 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—each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
