The Day the Crayons Quit
Includes an original art print by Oliver Jeffers The two most popular, colorful picture books in a generation are now available together in a joint slipcased edition--the perfect gift for the holiday season
In 2013, Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers' picture book, The Day the Crayons Quit, became a #1 bestselling smash-hit. It featured a boy named Duncan and his funny, disgruntled cast of crayons who decided enough was enough--it was time to walk off the job. Luckily, Duncan managed to convince them to come back to work and a second book was born, The Day the Crayons Came Home, in which a new cast of crayons found themselves displaced--and not all in one piece--in need of finding a way home. Now these two books are available together for the first time in a joint slipcased edition.
