I absolutely loved this book. I've seen it once or twice before and stumbled upon it a couple of weeks ago. We found it at the library and finally read it last night. It had sounded like such a cute book so I was worried whether it would be as good as my expectations.

It definitely was! This was such a cute book. Duncan's crayons go on strike for various reasons. Each crayon has it's own personality and it's own beef with Duncan. Each color writes a letter to him about what he's frustrated about. Some of them were pretty funny. Accompanying each letter are pictures of the things he generally colors with that specific color (green frogs, purple dinos, red apples, etc) or how they wish he would color with them (black beach ball, pink cowboy, etc). There had to have been at least 10 different colors included in this story. It's a great way for kids to learn their colors and also learn what types of things are those colors.

At the end of the story, Duncan finds a way to please all his crayons and there is a huge two page spread of a drawing by Duncan. It was so much fun.

BTW: Yellow is right and Orange is wrong in their argument! lol

We can't wait to read the second book, The Day the Crayons Came Home.
