The Crayon Box by Drew Daywalt

Internationally bestselling books The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home brought together in an exquisite slipcase! What's better than receiving a copy of The Day the Crayons Quit or The Day the Crayons Came Home? Receiving them both! A must-have gift for fans who've already fallen in love with these funny books, and for new readers, alike. In 2013, Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers' picture book, The Day the Crayons Quit, became an international bestseller. It featured a boy named Duncan and his funny, disgruntled cast of crayons who decided enough was enough - it was time to leave. Luckily, Duncan managed to convince them to come back to work and a second book was born, The Day the Crayons Came Home, in which a new cast of crayons found themselves displaced - and not all in one piece - in need of finding a way home. Now these two books are brought together for the first time in this beautiful slipcased edition.

...stunning illustrations Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian Praise for This Moose Belongs to Me: 'As ever, Jeffers's illustrations delight, inspire and surprise with their variety and ingenuity.
