About this item

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! 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.   Praise for The Day the Crayons Came Home One of Parents Magazine's Ten Best Children's Books of 2015!

I bought this set to give to my daughter to use for her 1st Grade Class. Before giving it to her I had to read it! They did not disappoint! Really clever story and so true! Love these books and I'm sure my daughter's class is going to love them as well.
