The full story

The Day The Crayons Quit is the story of what happens when Beige decides it's 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. We love stories that turn the world upside down and this brilliant book is the first of a series about craft supplies with minds of their own!
