The Day the Crayons Quit Slipcased edition

Drew Daywalt; illustrated by Oliver Jeffers


The most popular picture book companions in many a year are now available in a joint slipcased edition--the perfect gift for the holiday season!

Includes a bonus art print created by Oliver Jeffers!

In 2013, Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers' picture book, The Day the Crayons Quit, became a #1 bestselling smash-hit. It featured a boy named Duncan and his funny, disgruntled cast of crayons who decided enough was enough--it was time to walk off the job. Luckily, Duncan managed to convince them to come back to work and a second book was born, The Day the Crayons Came Home, in which a new cast of crayons found themselves displaced--and not all in one piece--in need of finding a way home. Now these two books are available together for the first time in a joint slipcased edition. 

What's better than receiving a copy of The Day the Crayons Quit or The Day the Crayons Came Home? Receiving them both! A must-have gift purchase for the holiday season, The Day the Crayons Quit Slipcase is a timely and handy offering for fans who've already fallen in love with these funny books and those who will take delight in discovering these colorful tales.
