This follow-up to The Day The Crayons Quit is hilarious!  It’s a great book to read out loud and adults won’t mind reading it over and over and over again.  Detailed illustrations by Oliver Jeffers that include crayon-written postcards, photos and a bonus glow-in-the-dark page perfect for night time reading makes this book a winner.
