This wonderful book, “Night Light,” counts up to ten different lights hiding in the night and invites the reader to guess which vehicles shines these lights. On the following page, the answer is uncovered for the reader. Simple and graphic die- cut pictures paired with rhyming counting make this book a fun read with a little surprise at the end.

Duncan’s crayons are tired of doing their jobs! Red Crayon wants a break from fire trucks, Gray Crayon wants to color something smaller than an elephant or a humpback whale, and Beige Crayon wants to be called “Beige,” not “Light Tan” or “Dark Brown.” All the crayons are fed up (except Green Crayon, who is just tired of Orange and Yellow bickering). Duncan just wants to color! What can he do? Told through funny letters to Duncan and colorful illustrations provided by the crayons themselves, these crazy crayon problems will have you laughing - and thinking outside the crayon box!

Comments from Readers

Gidget at South County, age 21 from NC
Have you ever opened a box of crayons and only found a stack of letters with your name on each one? That is what happened to Duncan one day at school. The crayons had quit and each wrote a letter as to why. Duncan just wants to color. You`ll look at your crayons differently after reading this imaginative, colorful tale.
