About the Book



"When Gurple and Preen crash land onto a strange alien planet, they must work together to build something new from their mistake in order to save their mission"--



Book Synopsis



This wildly imaginative, crayon-inspired picture book shows that with a bit of teamwork and a universe of creativity, anything is possible!

Buzz!
Zap!
CRASH!

Gurple and Preen are in a big mess!

When they crash-land onto an unfamiliar planet with nothing but boxes of crayons, they must work together to get the mission back on course.

From Newbery Award-winning author Linda Sue Park and illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi comes a story about all the best things that can come out of a box of crayons.



Review Quotes




"Park's homage to creativity underscores how handy unlikely items can be; Preen ties the tablecloth to gather the crayons, which the quails then ferry to the ship, for example. Ohi's brightly hued digital illustrations combine hyperrealistic crayons (resembling photographs) with less vibrant cartoon art that seems to be drawn with crayons. A clever nod to imagination and ingenuity." - Booklist

"Seemingly insurmountable problems are defeated one step at a time...the lively cartoon art, featuring digitally collaged crayons, is consistently bright, colorful, and funny." - Kirkus Reviews
