Oh, we LOVE this book. Firstly, you can tell who it's been illustrated by in all of 1 second. The fantastic Oliver Jeffers. Words are by Drew Daywalt who we've not heard of before, but we're happy to know him now!
The fantastic folk at Harper Collins sent us a copy and we've been enjoying it ever since. It's quite a long wordy book so it's brilliant for Ethan's bedtime. He really enjoys more in-depth stories these days but still loves a good amount of illustrations.
If the title hasn't already given you a clue, this book is all about a pack of crayons who have had enough. A boy called Duncan opens his box of crayons one day, eager to start drawing only to find that each crayon has written a letter. Most are letters of complaint. Each crayon has issues and they all want to be heard. Perhaps they've been used too much, or too little. It's an amusing book with beautiful illustrations.
You can tell the author is American, some of the words used are quite "American" but not so much that it's an issue. Oliver Jeffers does a fantastic job with the illustrations helping give each crayon a personality.
I found this an enjoyable book to read. It's interesting from a parent's perspective as well as a child's and Ethan often asks for it so I know he enjoys it!
Definitely one we'd recommend! Published by Harper Collins with a RRP of £12.99 for the hardback.
I can't believe how many times we've read this book since I bought it from the suggested books ticker at the bottom of the screen. Since I have a child who likes to peel crayons, this was perfect.ReplyDelete
