The Day The Crayons Came Home

Drew Daywalt

The hilarious sequel to the prize-winning, international bestseller The Day the Crayons Quit!

Watch out - the crayons are back and they’re crosser than ever! One day Duncan receives a set of postcards from his crayons who been lost, forgotten, broken - even melted in a clothes dryer and stuck to a pair of underpants!

A hilarious text and joyful illustrations combine to show that crayons have feelings too in this laugh-out-loud sequel to bestselling picture book The Day the Crayons Quit.


It’s been over a year since the crayons quit (The Day the Crayons Quit) and postcards are starting to arrive for the neglectful Duncan. As we know, the crayons were living sad and disgruntled existences as Duncan’s colouring buddies, but as we also know, the grass seems greener on the other side…until we get there.

Now the crayons want to come home and in a series of hilarious postcards they explain their predicaments. What will Duncan do? How can he help his old friends? Well, he comes up with a marvellously inventive solution that every child will be inspired by. Hooray for Duncan.

Colourful fun for ages two and up.
