The hysterically colorful companion to the bestselling picture book of the past year-plus, The Day the Crayons Quit!

Poor Duncan! His crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters! In The Day the Crayons Quit, they threatened to walk off the job. Now a whole new group of crayons have sent postcards 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, who is 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. Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers have created a companion book every bit as funny and kid-friendly as The Day the Crayons Quit?and this book even has real glow-in-the-dark ink!


Drew Daywalt grew up in a haunted house, but now lives in a Southern California home haunted by only his wife, two kids, and a German Shepherd. A Hollywood screenwriter when he is not writing for young readers, Drew?s favorite crayon is Black. Follow Drew at @DrewDaywalt.
