3.0 out of 5 stars Original idea, not the best execution
By Antonio Carlos Andrade on 12 August 2018
The idea is full of potential: a boy receives letters from each of his crayons expressing their discontent (for apparent various reaasons, but in reality it s always the same 2: too much use or not enough). I remember creating background stories for my coloring pens and pencils when I was a child, and they included a lot more options... At the end, the boy tries to please his crayons (laudable) by making a drawing with all of them, but I challenge anyone to find Grey (and poor peach is a stretch, too).

The language seems more suitable for 8 or older.

The illustrations look and feel like they were made directly on the page by real crayons, which gives it a nice touch (pun intended).

All in all, I think I'll use the idea but tell each letter differently, perhaps with some actual stories.
