The second book in this series. I enjoyed it almost as much as the first. Duncan receives postcards from his upset and misplaced crayons. Duncan built a home for all of the crayons that have returned home. Again, I think kids will love this book. I love the humor. I loved reading each postcard. ( )

Some of the crayons in Duncan's home have written him postcards telling him how they feel abandoned or neglected by him. Duncan feels bad and gathers all of them. Now that he has them together, he makes a place where they can all feel comfortable, and they are happy again.

This was another book in this series that I absolutely adored. It is so witty and funny. I especially loved Maroon's postcard because Maroon says he is marooned. I loved this literary element. Sometimes, we can identify with these neglected crayons. We feel upset sometimes that we aren't loved enough, and kids can connect with this book on an emotional level yet still have some laughs while reading it. I also liked that all of the forgotten crayons now live with each other in harmony, no matter their outside appearance. ( )
