June 2016 Book Club Selection

I'm not sure what it is about this kid Duncan, but his crayons sure are a colorful bunch of characters! First, one box of crayons threatened to quit. Now Duncan faces a whole new group of crayons - asking to be rescued! From Maroon, who was lost beneath the sofa cushions and then broken in two after Dad sat on him; to poor Turquoise, whose head is now stuck to one of Duncan's socks after they both ended up in the dryer together; to Pea Green, who knows darn well that no kid likes peas and who ran away - each and every crayon has a woeful tale to tell and a plea to be brought home to the crayon box.
