'The Day the Crayons Quit', written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers
Duncan just wants to do some colouring - but when he opens his box of crayons, he finds a whole bundle of letters of complaint. The crayons aren't happy: Beige is sick and tired of playing second fiddle to Brown; Blue is exhausted after colouring in so many oceans, lakes and rivers; Orange and Yellow can't agree on who is really the colour of the sun; and Peach has a rather embarassing problem. Can Duncan come up with a solution to keep the crayons happy - before they quit colouring for good?" - booktrust.org.uk
