Poor Duncan just wants to colour.
But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: His crayons have had enough! They quit!

What can Duncan possibly do to appease all of the crayons and get them back to doing what they do best? Kids will be imagining their own humorous conversations with crayons and colouring a blue streak after sharing laughs with Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers.
