Children's Corner: The Day the Crayons Quit

 Walking into our local Indie children's book store, Monkey See, Monkey Do, I found this book prominently displayed in the front and picked it up.  Upon flipping through it, I found that I couldn't put it down.

Duncan just wants to color, but his crayons have decided it's time to have a word with him about the way he uses them.  Yellow and Orange are no longer speaking to each other because they are arguing over what the true color of the sun is.  Blue is overused and tired.  Pink never gets used at all, except by Duncan's sister, and Pink's quite put out about it.  And peach?  Well, peach is a little embarrassed...   In the end Duncan gets to color and finds a way to make all of his crayons happy.

It's my daughter's new favorite read and mine too.  This book touches on compromise, getting along, and using your imagination, but most of all it's a witty read that's fun for children and parent's alike.

I've heard a lot of buzz about this book, but hadn't read a summary or review yet. Thanks for covering it, it sounds great!
