Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Children's Book of 2013: The Day the Crayons Quit, Drew Daywalt’s clever story of a box of crayons gone rogue will get the whole family laughing at the letters written by the occupants of the ubiquitous yellow and green box. The combination of text and Oliver Jeffers' illustrations match the colors' personalities beautifully as the crayons share their concern, appreciation, or downright frustration: yellow and orange demand to know the true color of the sun, while green--clearly the people pleaser of the bunch--is happy with his workload of crocodiles, trees, and dinosaurs. Peach crayon wants to know why his wrapper was torn off, leaving him naked and in hiding; blue is exhausted and, well, worn out; and pink wants a little more paper time. The result of this letter writing campaign is colorful creativity and after reading this book I will never look at crayons the same way again--nor would I want to. ---Seira Wilson

From Booklist

Duncan’s crayons are on strike. One morning he opens his desk looking for them and, in their place, finds a pack of letters detailing their grievances, one crayon at a time. Red is tired. Beige is bored. Black is misunderstood. Peach is naked! The conceit is an enticing one, and although the crayons’ complaints are not entirely unique (a preponderance centers around some variation of overuse), the artist’s indelible characterization contributes significant charm. Indeed, Jeffers’ ability to communicate emotion in simple gestures, even on a skinny cylinder of wax, elevates crayon drawing to remarkable heights. First-class bookmaking, with clean design, ample trim size, and substantial paper stock, adds to the quality feel. A final spread sees all things right, as Duncan fills a page with bright, delightful imagery, addressing each of the crayons’ issues and forcing them into colorful cooperation. Kids who already attribute feelings to their playthings will never look at crayons the same way again. Grades K-3. --Thom Barthelmess

3.0 out of 5 stars Original idea, not the best execution
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on August 12, 2018
The idea is full of potential: a boy receives letters from each of his crayons expressing their discontent (for apparent various reaasons, but in reality it s always the same 2: too much use or not enough). I remember creating background stories for my coloring pens and pencils when I was a child, and they included a lot more options... At the end, the boy tries to please his crayons (laudable) by making a drawing with all of them, but I challenge anyone to find Grey (and poor peach is a stretch, too).

The language seems more suitable for 8 or older.

The illustrations look and feel like they were made directly on the page by real crayons, which gives it a nice touch (pun intended).

All in all, I think I'll use the idea but tell each letter differently, perhaps with some actual stories.
