The Forgotten Crayon - Yoko Maruyama

The Forgotten Crayon - Yoko Maruyama

3.90/5 (18)

A boxful of brand-new crayons is overjoyed when a boy named Lucas brings them home and starts using them to make pictures. Except that Lucas never, ever uses the white crayon for anything, and when he decides he needs a new set of crayons, that white crayon is still as tall and as clean as the day it was bought. Poor white crayon feels so dejected. But when a girl named Olivia stumbles upon the fresh white crayon, she's delighted. She draws her own kinds of pictures, and this white crayon is exactly what she needs.
