BookPage.com has unveiled the cover for The Day The Crayons Came Home written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers.
We’ve embedded the full image above—what do you think? Philomel Books, an imprint at Penguin Young Readers Group, has set the publication date on August 18th.
Daywalt sat for an interview to discuss this sequel project. He explained that he was inspired to write stories about crayons because his own set “told me that if I didn’t bring their plight to the public eye, something terrible might happen to me.” He also revealed that he empathizes the most with the “Neon Red” crayon and the “Glow-in-the-Dark” crayon.
