Do you know who Esteban…..The Magnificent is?? Neither did I till I read this book. Like its prequel ” The day the crayons quit” this book is very imaginative, oodles of fun and a must have. It is a lovely book to add to your library and also to give as a gift.
The story revolves around Duncan’s missing crayons. The true stars of the book are the crayons which have been neglected by him and how he deals with them. The send hilarious postcards to Duncan to tell their stories and their whereabouts. Each postcard is more interesting than the previous one and you will be reading them over and over again. The textured, glow in the dark Halloween drawing was very cool.
The book is fresh, original and will be enjoyed by the whole family. I am sure by the end of the book everyone will have a favorite. Mine is Esteban, let me know who is yours.
