The Day the Crayons Came Home - hardcover
Boy, Duncan's 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 Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's stinky socks after they ended up in the dryer together - each crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers, recommended for ages 5-8
