The Day the Crayons Came Home
Duncan's crayons certainly are a colourful bunch of characters! Having soothed the hurt feelings of one group who threatened to quit, Duncan now faces a whole new crowd 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 Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's stinky socks after they ended up in the dryer together - each crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers have combined to create a companion book every bit as funny and child-friendly as their best-selling The Day the Crayons Quit, winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2015, as voted for by children.
