I liked it because it was about the crayons Quit

This was a quick and fun read. Other than the intro and outro, the entire book was letters from the crayons to Duncan. The illustrations were wonderful, full of colour and drawn in actual crayon. The story was that each crayon was upset for a specific reason, and so Duncan draws a picture taking into account what each crayon said; he was then awarded a well done sticker and a gold star for this picture.
I would recommend this book because it was fun. The book can also be interpreted as treating people with respect and understanding / adapting to people's different needs and values.

The book is about a bunch of crayons that quit doing their job because Duncan wasn't doing what they liked.

It was funny that the crayons all wrote letters to Duncan.

This is a very funny book as each crayon is annoyed about something such as being used too much or hardly at all.

I think this book is funny because the crayons all talk and they have feelings which make them they say very funny things. I read this book to my baby brother who likes looking at all of the different things the crayons have drawn.

I though the day the crayons quit story was very funny because all of the crayons were complaining.
My favourite character in this story was the blue crayon because he was so small as he was used too much. I would recommend this story to everyone who has not read this book.

Great story

I loved this book because my favourite colour is pink and he moaned that it was only use for certain pictures that Duncan’s sister wanted to use it for. Duncan hardly every used it as it’s a girl colour. It was interesting to see what the crayons thought of the other crayons that belonged to Duncan.
I would recommend this book to other children my age as it’s interesting and some things make you think about what use the colour crayons for. Use the ones you don’t use often more.

I loved this book because my favourite colour is black and he moaned that he was only used for the out line of items / pictures. It was interesting to see what the crayons thought of the other crayons that belonged to Duncan.

Funny and good pictures.

This book is about loads of crayons who write to their owner about how they're not happy with his work. It was only the green crayon who liked his work. The yellow and red crayons were driving him crazy because they thought that they should be the colour of the sun. I would recommend it to children who like funny books.

17 Aug 2020

It is a really fun story when the crayons tell Duncan how hard they've been working so he makes them happy at the end!
I would recommend this book - I will tell my new teacher about it
