Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Duncan's crayons are back in this companion to the spectacular The Day the Crayons Quit (Philomel, 2014), and they are just as forthright as ever. A stack of postcards arrive for the neglectful boy, this time written by a new batch of crayons who have been forgotten at motels, lost under the couch, or left behind in the basement. Maroon has been marooned under the sofa, having been broken by Duncan's dad, who sat on it, Tan (or Burnt Sienna) has seen better days and has recently been puked up by the dog, and old frenemies Orange and Yellow have melted in the sun to become one gooey mess. Recurring postcards from Pea Green (aka Esteban), who dreams of traveling, and clueless Neon Red, who writes about grand adventures abroad, will elicit giggles from young ones. Jeffers's mixed-media illustrations of photographed postcards and childlike crayon drawings against white backdrops enhance kid appeal and encourage close visual reading. A glow-in-the-dark spread and chatty household items, such as a sock, a paper clip, and a pencil sharpener, are new aspects to look forward to, and the general theme of home being a place where everyone belongs will resonate with old and young readers alike. VERDICT A brilliant, colorful tale that begs to be read aloud and a must-have for all collections.—Shelley Diaz, School Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars These deserve the reward and the Crayons will become a classic!
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2019
A modern book that will become an even better classic then it is now. I keep multiple copies of both this book and The Day the Crayons Quit. Every classroom teacher wants one when I read it, and I give them out as gifts. I'm taking a picture to show some of the ones I have ready to give as gifts. The story captures the attention of the young mind while assisting with colors and , all with the perfect sense of humor. Be sure to double check the author of these books as there are other crayon books out there. Thank you so much to the author of these books!
