Fantastic bedtime story just find a good hiding place for it.
28 September 2017
Absolutely great book I purchased on the recommendation of a friend who works in a library. I loved it the first 11 times I read it to nephews at bed time. Bought the sequel to avoid temporary insanity from re-reading the same book too many times in a short space of time. Seriously, these kids have a whole bookcase to choose from when they visit me, but no matter where I hid this book they still found it.
As for the story itself, it's very well written, a great idea supported fantastically by the illustrations. If you do unique voices for each colour be sure to remember which crayon has which voice next time you read it, otherwise you'll be constantly interrupted by cries of "This is green not brown!"
The only downside is that the style of writing on the letters makes it difficult for my 6 year old nephew to join in the reading, he's great at typed text but struggles with the crayon font.
