There is a crisis in Duncan’s crayon box. When he opens it, he finds a stack of letters from his crayons, they’ve quit! Red and Blue are exhausted – from colouring so many hearts and apples, rivers and oceans – and need a break. Purple wants Duncan to colour inside and not outside the lines and Yellow and Orange are quarreling because they both claim to be the true colour of the sun. Read the book to find out how Duncan solves the problems in crayon-land.
THUMBS UP AND DOWN
UP: It tickled my funny bone, I loved it. If crayons had voices, they would probably say the things that the crayons in Duncan’s box had to say. Guaranteed to make your little artist laugh.

lovely review, keep up the good work 😀
This is one of the best picture books I’ve read in recent years – I found it hard to review because I just wanted to give it accolades!
