Today is World Book Day, which is celebrated yearly on April, 23rd.
I would like to present a fabulous book on this special day.
The day the crayons quit by Drew Daywalt and and the famous illustrator Oliver Jeffers.
The story is quite simple, but this book is definitely one that makes you and your kids smile every time you turn the page. a truly original picture book, which is hard to find.
Little Duncan loves to color with his crayons. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit! Crayons have feelings, too.
Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Red is very tired because he has to work even during holidays, like Christmas and Valentine´s Day… Blue needs a break from coloring all that water and is stubby because of all this hard work, while Pink just wants to be used. Black Crayon is fed up with only being used to outline things. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other as both are convinced that they are the color of the sun.
Each crayon’s letter is written in childish handwriting and accompanied by examples of some of Duncan’s’ drawings to illustrate their point. So cute!
What is Duncan to do? Debut author Drew Daywalt and New York Timesbestseller Oliver Jeffers create a colorful solution in this playful, imaginative story that will have children laughing and playing with their crayons in a whole new way.
