By Drew Daywalt, illus by Oliver Jeffers

Duncan wants to color, but when he opens his box of crayons all he finds is a stack of letters...from his crayons!  The crayons are tired of coloring the same old things.  The red is tired of coloring ALL the apples and fire engines and Santas every year.  Black hates doing all the  outlines and being second place to ALL to the other colors.  Blue likes being favorite but hates his workload!  Geesh!  All those oceans and rivers and clear skies.  He's so short and stubby he can't even see out of the box!  His crayons are FED up!  So they quit.  That gives Duncan an idea...  This is a playful, imaginative story for ages 4-6!
