Giveaway – The Day The Crayons Quit
At four years old Curly Girl is a fully-fledged storybook addict. She will sit happily listening to me (or heck anyone actually, who am I kidding) read book after book, asking questions as we go along. She has her favourites though and, as I’ve learnt to my chagrin, can be quite critical of new books that don’t quite hit the mark in her opinion.
When we received , a new book by debut author Drew Daywalt and International bestseller Olive Jeffers (he of How To Catch A Star fame), I knew the fact that it had just been named #1 in the New York Times bestsellers list would cut no mustard with my own mini-critic.
I’d already read through it myself and I must admit I LOVED it. The whole concept of the story is brilliant – poor Duncan just wants to colour in. But when he opens his box of crayons, he only finds letters, all saying the same thing: We quit! Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown, Blue needs a break from colouring in all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other. The battle lines have been drawn. What is Duncan to do?
More importantly, what is Curly Girl going to do when she reads about this crayon-based crisis, I wondered.
But I needn’t have worried. She loved it as much as I did. In fact we went back and read it through again just to remind ourselves which crayon said what in their letter. Some of the letters are very funny by the way. So Curly Girl gives The Day The Crayons Quit two thumbs up – it’s definitely a keeper in this house.
