Description

Product 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.

Look for a special glow-in-the-dark picture [Note: make sure to “charge” it under a light first].

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Duncan''s crayons are back in this companion to the spectacular The Day the Crayons Quit (Philomel, 2014), and they are just as forthright as ever. A stack of postcards arrive for the neglectful boy, this time written by a new batch of crayons who have been forgotten at motels, lost under the couch, or left behind in the basement. Maroon has been marooned under the sofa, having been broken by Duncan''s dad, who sat on it, Tan (or Burnt Sienna) has seen better days and has recently been puked up by the dog, and old frenemies Orange and Yellow have melted in the sun to become one gooey mess. Recurring postcards from Pea Green (aka Esteban), who dreams of traveling, and clueless Neon Red, who writes about grand adventures abroad, will elicit giggles from young ones. Jeffers''s mixed-media illustrations of photographed postcards and childlike crayon drawings against white backdrops enhance kid appeal and encourage close visual reading. A glow-in-the-dark spread and chatty household items, such as a sock, a paper clip, and a pencil sharpener, are new aspects to look forward to, and the general theme of home being a place where everyone belongs will resonate with old and young readers alike. VERDICT A brilliant, colorful tale that begs to be read aloud and a must-have for all collections.—Shelley Diaz, School Library Journal

Drew Daywalt does it again! His latest book “The Day the Crayons Came Home” once more features Duncan and his very unusual, very verbose crayons. Humorous postcards, written by different, individual colors of crayon, will have you laughing aloud at their complaints, misadventures, and revelations. (Be sure to note the postcard’s description – when shown.) Since they are traveling a long distance to reach home or need assistance to leave, several of the crayons do send multiple postcards. With the exception of yellow and orange crayons, the colors in this book are different from those in the previous “The Day the Crayons Quit”. The humor in the postcard’s written text may be gentle, snarky, or it may be making a point about the featured crayon’s feelings. Every postcard is funny and fun to read.

Oliver Jeffers’ illustrations – childlike crayon drawings and lettering – add significantly to the book’s appeal and highlight the dilemmas faced by each color. Younger readers may find the child-like lettering a bit difficult to decipher. On the other hand, they may be able to assist adult readers who are having difficulty reading the childlike printing.

One of my favorite things about Drew Daywalt’s two books is that the crayons reflect both readers’ and listeners’ emotions. Duncan’s crayons do have very human feelings and reactions to the events in their lives. Those in “The Day the Crayons Quit” are more representative of adults and their workplace attitudes. In “The Day the Crayons Came Home”, the crayons express feelings that are more familiar to children – feeling forgotten, disliking their own name and wanting to change it, needing help to run away from home.

“The Day the Crayons Quit” is one of my grandson’s favorite bedtime books. I am sure that “The Day the Crayons Came Home” will be, too. It is a fun-filled, funny book. It will engage and entertain both young readers and adults. I recommend you add this wonderful, imaginative book to your library.

A modern book that will become an even better classic then it is now. I keep multiple copies of both this book and The Day the Crayons Quit. Every classroom teacher wants one when I read it, and I give them out as gifts. I''m taking a picture to show some of the ones I have ready to give as gifts. The story captures the attention of the young mind while assisting with colors and , all with the perfect sense of humor. Be sure to double check the author of these books as there are other crayon books out there. Thank you so much to the author of these books!

I love this book as much as my kids do (if not more). I didn''t think a second book could be quite as funny as the first one. However, I was proven wrong. This book is hilarious!

My children (ages 3 and 5) love this book! It is an easy read, so creative, and the pictures are fantastic.

There is a glow-in-the-dark page, however, it did not glow for us. If we left it in the light for a while, it might work. However, the glow feature isn''t necessary, as the book is fabulous by itself!

Drew Daywalt has done it again! A creative, laugh out loud, and fun book to read. I highly recommend to children from about 2.5 to adult! You absolutely couldn''t go wrong purchasing for a younger child, as they will enjoy this book for years to come. As a parent, I could read both books (The Day The Crayons Quit and The Day The Crayons Came Home) over and over again.

This is one of the best books I have read yet. It''s really entertaining. I like all the crayons having feelings like sadness, embarrassment, and being left behind -- stuff kids feel in real life. I also like that the crayons say their own words and want to come home (even with stuff stuck to them). I recommend kids buy this book. It is funny because it has funny words like "horrified".

Our family enjoyed this book even more than the original, "When the Crayons Quit." It is clever and unique. My nine and seven year old daughters think it is hilarious.

Pros:

1) clever postcards written from various crayons to their "boy" Duncan

2) humor for kids and adults

3) parents will enjoy reading it over and over again

4) cute illustrations

5) fantastic price here on Amazon

Con:

1) potty humor joke about "poop" and illustration of an animal''s poop: does not use the word poop, but the implication is there

Silly and fun book that is best for older kids, maybe not toddlers. Just depends on your sensitivity to certain words.

I saw this in the Goodreads list of candidates for the Best Picture Book of the Year and thought my granddaughter (who has just recently discovered crayons) might like it. So I had to read it after having bought it to see what it was like. Actually, I think it may be a little over her head by now, but she has liked books from almost the beginning, so I think by the time she is old enough to start learning how to read she will like it, and won’t be hurt by having had it read to her a few times beforehand.
This is so cute! Man, it is tough to be a crayon! And the little boy, Duncan is a very understanding and clever fellow to find a way to take care of all his errant crayons.

Absolutely fabulous sequel to The day the crayons quit. Just as hilarious for myself reading the book as it is for the child. I personally bought the first book as a gift several times over and I can see myself doing the same for this one. The only thing that I''d say is that there is supposed to be a glow in the dark page but I can never seem to get it to glow no matter how long I leave it open for. However that isn''t enough to deter me from buying this as a gift in the future.
