Hey Everyone! It's me, Daisy! I'm back with summer reading every Wednesday. I have a whole stack of books to tell you about. First up, The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt. We know crayons all quit on the last day of school, but this isn't a story about summer vacation. The story starts off with Duncan (!!!) getting a stack of letters...from his crayons!
Each crayon wrote a letter to Duncan. They talked about how they aren't used enough, are his favorite, are only used for holidays and firetrucks (red), which is the real color of the sun (orange or yellow), and how they are happy with their career so fat (green).
Poor beige. He's tired of being second place to Brown because Brown gets all the puppies, bears, and ponies. Beige just gets wheat and maybe a turkey dinner. I need to have a talk with Beige...he's missing out on drawing a lot of Wheatie puppies! Beige would be used all the time for drawing me!!!!
This is the funniest part of the book in my opinion. Peach is NAKED! Hahahahaha! Poor Peach had it's clothes torn off and is now too embarrassed to leave the box. We all know crayons like Peach.
On the last page, Duncan honored all the crayons' request and created a masterpiece.
