Book of the Day by Mrs. Mattei

Are you a fan of the Texas Bluebonnet Award winning book The Day the Crayons Quit?? If you are, you are in for a REAL treat! Today's book of the day comes from acclaimed author/illustrator duo Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers. Check this gem out!

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 Burnt Sienna, who was eaten by the dog and then puked up on the living room rug ("NOT "pretty, Duncan); to poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's 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, changing his name to Esteban the Magnificent--each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers have combined to create a companion book every bit as funny and kid-friendly as the #1 bestselling "The Day the Crayons Quit."
