The Day the Crayons Came Home
One day, a surprising stack of postcards arrives for Duncan. They are all from his old forgotten crayons, demanding to be brought home to the crayon box.
Maroon Crayon is lost in the sofa, held together by a paperclip since dad sat on him. Neon Red Crayon is waiting by the pool where he drew dad's sunburn, months earlier. Yellow and Orange Crayons melted together when Duncan drew the sun. Turquoise Crayon is stuck to Duncan's stinky sock! Even Pea Green Crayon, who wanted to see the world, decides life is better at home.
So Duncan builds a special fort, all his misshapen crayons will always feel at home.
A captivating, comical sequel to The Day the Crayons Quit (winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2015), to delight young and old alike.
