The companion to the #1 blockbuster bestseller, The Day the Crayons Quit ! "Highly anticipated (yes, even for adults)" -- Entertainment Weekly I''m not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his 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 poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's stinky socks after they both ended up in the dryer together; to Pea Green, who knows darn well that no kid likes peas and who ran away--each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box. Look for a special glow-in-the-dark picture [Note: make sure to "charge" it under a light first]. Praise for The Day the Crayons Came Home    One of Parents Magazine ''s Ten Best Children''s Books of 2015! A Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year!
