This is the second book to The Day the Crayons Quit. Duncan first hurt his crayons feelings enough to make them quit their job. Then he fixes the relationships by listening to their complaints and using the colors in the way they want. In the second book, they are trying to find their way back to Duncan but face many struggles throughout their adventure. ( )

The day the Crayons returned is a light hearted book focused on after the crayons returned and calmed down. Only now there are crayons that need saving and they are the ones to do it. This book can be used in many different aspects within your classroom from showing students cause and effect to teaching different aspects of friendship ( )

I loved when the crayon wrote Duncan that he was on a camel in NJ when he was actually in Egypt. I know it's supposed to be a children's book but these books had me laughing so hard they brightened my day. ( )

The companion to the #1 blockbuster bestseller, The Day the Crayons Quit!

“Highly anticipated (yes, even for adults)” —Entertainment Weekly

I'm not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters! Having soothed the hurt feelings of one group who threatened to quit, Duncan now faces a whole new group 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 poor Turquoise, whose head is now 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 combined to create a companion book every bit as funny and kid-friendly as the #1 bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit.
