Penguin Young Readers 12 Days of Picture Books Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway Day 12 – “The Day the Crayons Came Home” by Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers



“The Day the Crayons Came Home” by Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers


This sequel is hilarious! Each two page spread contains a postcard from one of Duncan’s beloved crayons each asking for help to find their way back home.  Poor crayons…. they have been through being broken, melted, eaten, sharpened and more. Will they all make it back home safely?  You’ll have to read the book to find out 😉
