the day the crayons quit

If you've ever wondered what in the world a crayon might be thinking, The Day the Crayons Quit is for you.  Written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers, it is a hilarious story about a boy named Duncan and a stack of letters he finds one day, from his disgruntled crayons.  Avery thought the funniest part was the letter from the white crayon because "you can't see him."  In the end, Duncan resolves things in a brilliantly simple way.

Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending this funny book.
