Goodreads:  Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit!

Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Blue needs a break from coloring 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.

What is Duncan to do? Debut author Drew Daywalt and New York Timesbestseller Oliver Jeffers create a colorful solution in this playful, imaginative story that will have children laughing and playing with their crayons in a whole new way.

Emma’s Opinion:  This was fun to read!  I like all the crayons!!  The last page was my favorite page.

Emma’s Rating:  Five fingers – I want to read it again and again.  I want to take the book home with me.   hand

Ope’s Opinion:  From a grandparent perspective, I like the book.  It is very colorful.  I thought it was a little too much to read on each page to keep a young childs attention.  The crayons were a little whiny to me – I don’t think a child would notice that.

Ope’s Rating:  Four fingers for me.
