Poor Duncan just wants to colour in. But when he opens his box of crayons, he only finds letters, all saying the same thing: We quit! Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown, Blue needs a break from colouring in all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other. The battle lines have been drawn. What is Duncan to do?

              My 6 year old grandson loved the book. The illustrations are colourful and appealing, the print is quirky and appealed to my young reader. I recommend this book to kick off a love of reading in young ones.

                Great book for my 4yr old who loves drawing and colouring. Great for the imagination and he even makes references to it when he draws. Great gift for a 4yrs.
