CRAYON BOX: The Day the Crayons Came Home

DREW DAYWALT & OLIVER JEFFERS    Book Number: 83104    Product format: Hardback

A magnificent box set of the bestselling hilarious picture book 'The Day the Crayons Quit' plus 'The Day the Crayons Came Home' and also in a special wallet sleeve an original Oliver Jeffers illustration of 10" square entitled Team Work with the turquoise happy face crayon turning the red crayon upside down and squiggling a drawing, printed on quality art paper and signed by the artist. One day in class, Duncan went to take out his crayons and found a stack of letters with his name on them. The crayons needed to talk and the red one complained that Duncan made him work harder than any of his other crayons, colouring FIRE ENGINES, APPLES, STRAWBERRIES and everything else that is RED. "I even work on holidays! I have to colour all the Santas at Christmas and all the hearts on Valentine's Day! I need a rest!" Then purple crayon writes his letter to the left hand side of the next double page spread with a fantastic Oliver Jeffers cartoon on the right hand side of the page in a wonderfully childlike but emotional colour drawing. There follows the beige crayon, the grey who says 'Your KILLING ME! I know you love elephants...' The white depicting a cat, the black depicting a seaside scene, the green depicting a really jolly alligator and we meet the zoo keeper, and see all Duncan's drawings of oceans, lakes and rivers, raindrops, rain clouds and clear skies by 'your very stubby friend, Blue Crayon' and so we go on to the end of this delightful story book. And that's not all. Next comes the sequel, the second book in the slipcase, 'The Day the Crayons Came Home' this time they are postcard style left hand page and right hand side boldly coloured crayon writing and picture postcards from the 1950s. The Halloween double page spread in black is almost sticky with green spooky illustrations. The very very fluorescent pink crayon makes many appearances, the best of which is riding on the back of the camel in front of the Great Pyramids postcard. Utterly delightful humour for ages three to adult collectors of exquisite children's books. Box set with free art print.
