Drew Daywalt is an award-winning writer/director of film and TV, his work featured on Disney, MTV, FEARnet and Syfy. He lives in Southern California. Oliver Jeffers graduated from The University of Ulster in 2001 with First Class honours. His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award. 'Lost and Found' animation was broadcast on Channel 4. Oliver lives and works in Brookyln, New York.
Oliver Jeffers’ illustrations – childlike crayon drawings and lettering – add significantly to the book’s appeal and highlight the dilemmas faced by each color. Younger readers may find the child-like lettering a bit difficult to decipher. On the other hand, they may be able to assist adult readers who are having difficulty reading the childlike printing.
One of my favorite things about Drew Daywalt’s two books is that the crayons reflect both readers’ and listeners’ emotions. Duncan’s crayons do have very human feelings and reactions to the events in their lives. Those in “The Day the Crayons Quit” are more representative of adults and their workplace attitudes. In “The Day the Crayons Came Home”, the crayons express feelings that are more familiar to children – feeling forgotten, disliking their own name and wanting to change it, needing help to run away from home.
“The Day the Crayons Quit” is one of my grandson’s favorite bedtime books. I am sure that “The Day the Crayons Came Home” will be, too. It is a fun-filled, funny book. It will engage and entertain both young readers and adults. I recommend you add this wonderful, imaginative book to your library.
My children (ages 3 and 5) love this book! It is an easy read, so creative, and the pictures are fantastic.
There is a glow-in-the-dark page, however, it did not glow for us. If we left it in the light for a while, it might work. However, the glow feature isn't necessary, as the book is fabulous by itself!
Drew Daywalt has done it again! A creative, laugh out loud, and fun book to read. I highly recommend to children from about 2.5 to adult! You absolutely couldn't go wrong purchasing for a younger child, as they will enjoy this book for years to come. As a parent, I could read both books (The Day The Crayons Quit and The Day The Crayons Came Home) over and over again.
I got to admit the pages where the “glow in the dark” crayon is super cool. We will continue to read this book and will definitely add more to my review. As a mom this book wins in so many ways, creativity, pictures, story, and truthfulness. I mean how many of us end up sitting, crushing, braking, or simply throwing a crayon away. We might think a bit differently from now on.... Love, love, absolutely love it.
