Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great book! I bought this book for my grandson and I'm saving it till he does more coloring - but he's going to love it! I love the personalities of the crayons and the way they interact with each other and with Duncan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Day the Crayons Quit What a charming book with an intriguing title and delightful illustrations! I think that each child who reads it will think it was written just for them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Idea, no follow through I judged this book by its cover (and inside flap and reviews here). I should not have done. What started out as a promising story ended with a fizzle rather than bang. I was expecting the crayons to unite together in their protest but was left with the message that cutting others down/being a rat (orange and yellow) and brown-nosing (green) are the way to get things done. Not the message. Was hoping for a more cooperative approach from the colours against the tyrannical Duncan, but alas did not get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creatively Hilarious! I love this book! It's creative, engaging, and fun to read.  I don't know how many times I laughed out loud.  My partner and I enjoy coming up with different voices for each of the colours and our kid enjoys listening to us make fools of ourselves. Not only would I recommend this book to a friend...I plan on buying it for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laugh Out Loud Awesomeness! What a great concept! This book was so much fun to read, for both me and the children I read it to! What a hilarious way to have us thinking more about the colors in our world and the way that we use them. Super fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fun! My children read this at daycare and they were so excited to tell me about it that we brought it home that night to read at bedtime.  The kids just love it, and the parents too.  So cute & fun.  The crayons easily 'come to life' in this story with their very own personalities.  Very funny and fun for the entire family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crayons Have Feelings Too The Day The Crayons Quit had me Laughing Out Loud to hear all the excuses as to why they did not ant to do their 'jobs' anymore. I not only couldn't believe some of the things that were written but at the same time I started to ask myself a few things that I never had before. I really don't want to spoil this book because in my opinion this book is a must read! I honestly can't think of a single thing not to like about this book, I thought I had one but than it turned out to be a pretty good lesson instead. It was the fact that the title had the word 'QUIT' in it. Only because as a parent I try to teach my son never to quit anything without first talking about the reasons behind it and trying to come up with a solution. Than I realized that's exactly what the crayon's did in their letters to Duncan; they talked about their feelings! Yet another great lesson for our children it's okay to talk about your feelings and it does help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A favourite during Read In Week I bought this book and read it to many classes in my children's elementary school during Read In Week. The kids (from Grade 1 through Grade 6) loved it. One girl eagerly asked me if I was going to read to her class "the crayon book," the one that I had read to her sister the day before. (Sister must have talked about it at length at dinner.) The kids thought naked peach crayon was hilarious, and enjoyed that yellow and orange were bickering. The Grade 4 class insisted I read it to them again! The librarian ordered it for the school library, and several of the teachers jotted down the name for their own classroom use. A huge hit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Genius! I bought this book for my 3 year old daughter for Christmas.  I had my order delivered to work, and needless to say, it had all the ladies I work with in stitches!  I laughed so hard when I read it the first time, I cried.  They all liked it so much, they all bought this book for their kids.  This is a hilarious read.....the author is simply genius.  The humorous may be a tad too advanced for my 3 year old, but when she is a bit older, I'm quite sure she'll love it as much as I do. A MUST HAVE for your kids library.  An instant classic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever, creative, and just the tiniest bit cranky--but in a great way! My three-year-old daughter Magda loved this book so much that she can't wait to start school just so she can bring it with her to show her teacher. It's about a boy named Duncan who has an unexpected discovery one day at school. His crayons have all written him letters of complaint! Grey crayon is tired of colouring in all those large animals--elephants hippos, whales; Black crayon is tired of only being used to outline other colours; Blue crayon is just plain tired; Green crayon is happy enough but he'd like to intervene on behalf of his friends, Orange and Yellow, who are currently not speaking to each other as each claims to be the true colour of the sun; and Pink and Beige feel frankly ignored. How will Duncan appease them all? Magda loved this book because she found it funny to think of her crayons as having opinions and complaints. Of course, I've heard her arguing with her Lambie on more than one occasion, so maybe she didn't find it so hard to believe after all. I liked it because it's funny and clever, it encourages children to be creative with how they use their crayons (why not draw an orange whale or a yellow sky?) AND it's illustrated by the marvellous Oliver Jeffers (author/illustrator of The Incredible Book Eating Boy). You can see more of Oliver Jeffers in his video, "Oliver Jeffers, Picture Book Maker" on my blog, Cozy Little Book Journal.

All opinions expressed are strictly my own (with a little help from my daughter of course).
