The Day the Crayons Quit
Silly/funny books are always a big hit in my house (especially with Charlotte and Henry). This one cracks us up. All the crayons in the crayon box have written letters to Duncan, voicing their discontent. Blue and Grey crayon are tired of coloring so much, Pink would like to be used more often for things like dinosaurs and cowboys, and Yellow and Orange are fighting over who should color the sun. The funniest letter is from Peach crayon who has had his wrapper stripped off and doesn't appreciate being naked in the crayon box! Oliver Jeffers' illustrations once again combine drawing and real life objects in a neat way.
I have one husband, three children, two cats and a house full of too many books to count. I love to read, ride my bike, bake, develop my own photographs, and I've been known to neglect all housework to play with my kids.
