Overview

The companion to the #1 blockbuster bestseller, "The Day the Crayons Quit"
A "Wall Street Journal" Best Children's Book of 2015 / A TIME Magazine Top 10 Children's Book of 2015
Highly anticipated (yes, even for adults) "Entertainment Weekly"
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.
