The Day the Crayons Quit (Board Book)

The crayons are on strike! When Duncan opens his crayon box, all he finds is notes which say “We quit”. Orange and Yellow are bitter rivals. Blue is sick of water. Beige feels unloved.

An instant bestseller that will make you use your art kit in a whole new way. Thank goodness Oliver’s crayons didn’t quit until he finished it.
