The Day the Crayons Quit is written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, who's also known for books such as How To Catch A Star and Lost and Found. This colourful picture book is witty, charming and funny - a perfect combination for read-aloud stories or as an entertaining bedtime book. Children will love this picture book, with a story that inspires them to get creative with their own pens and pencils.

In The Day the Crayons Quit, young Duncan discovers that the crayons in his box are tired of the way they're being treated. His pictures are all similar, some colours are used too much and others never seem to get picked. With child-friendly sarcastic humour and illustrations that really support the text, this book is as popular with grown-ups as it is with their kids. Throughout the book, read letters sent by each crayon to announce their resignation.

Ideally suited to children around primary school age, but with detailed illustrations that will captivate younger readers, The Day the Crayons Quit is a fun addition to any bookshelf.

  • Written by Drew Daywalt, with fun illustrations by Oliver Jeffers.

  • A selection of witty and slightly sarcastic letters, ideal for primary school children.
