Description
The companion to the #1 New York Times bestseller and blockbuster hit, The Day the Crayons Quit!
A Wall Street Journal Best Children's Book of 2015
A TIME Magazine Top 10 Children's Book of 2015

“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.

        Starred review from June 22, 2015
        How do you follow a hit like The Day the Crayons Quit? Stick with what works, and add a twist: instead of letters, Duncan receives a stack of postcards from crayons that have been misplaced or maligned, or are ready for adventure. A directionally challenged neon red crayon tries to get home after being abandoned at a motel; a trip through the dryer has left a turquoise crayon stuck to a sock; and a chunky toddler crayon can’t abide Duncan’s baby brother (“Picasso said every child is an artist, but I dunno”). Once again, Daywalt and Jeffers create rich emotional lives and personalities for their colorful cast, and it’s hard to imagine a reader who won’t be delighted. Ages 5–8. Author’s agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. Illustrator’s agent: Paul Moreton, Bell, Lomax, Moreton Agency.
