The Day the Crayons Came Home Publisher's Summary

The companion to the number one New York Times best seller and blockbuster hit The Day the Crayons Quit!

A Wall Street Journal Best Children's Book of 2015

A Time Magazine Top 10 Children's Book of 2015

“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.

"Mr. Daywalt’s text blends with Mr. Jeffers’s illustrations to make a picture book that will have children clamoring for more crayon adventures." (The Wall Street Journal)

“By telling stories from the points of view of crayons, giving voices to the small and ignored, Daywalt and Jeffers have created two books that offer plenty of charm and fun, but also make children feel deeply understood.” (The Boston Globe)

"A masterwork of humor and design.... Sure to be as popular as The Day the Crayons Quit." (Booklist, starred review)

"A brilliant, colorful tale that begs to be read aloud and a must-have for all collections." (School Library Journal, starred review)

"Once again, Daywalt and Jeffers create rich emotional lives and personalities for their colorful cast, and it’s hard to imagine a reader who won’t be delighted." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

“Not only stands on its own merit, but may be even more colorful than the original.” (Huffington Post)

“Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers once again offer perceptive and frequently hilarious insights.... The Day the Crayons Came Home will have readers of all ages chuckling - and will inspire kids’ empathy and imagination in equal measure.” (BookPage)
