The Lovereading4Kids comment

Simply conceived, this witty colouring catastrophe highlights the importance of friendship – and sharing. Red and Blue crayons are friends – they love entertaining each other with their own colours. But when they mix, Purple arrives. Can Red and Blue still be friends? And what about the other colours? Soon all the colours of the rainbow join in the fun.

From the author/illustrator of Monkey Nut, which won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013 and is currently nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Synopsis

Crayon by Simon Rickerty

Colouring is fun! Colouring is great! As long as you keep your crayon on YOUR side of
the paper...
A bit of red here. A bit of red there. A bit of red... HEY! You’re colouring on my side!
This bit of the book is for BLUE.
So begins a colourful squabble that takes an unexpected turn.

This fun and colorful book will leave your little ones wanting to create masterpieces.
Make sure they stick to their side though!
