Product description

Review

“[A] fresh approach to colors and feelings. . . . Readers will share all the emotional elements of the tale—humor, despair, sadness, frustration, and finally, excitement.” (Booklist (starred review))^“When a red-labeled crayon discovers he’s actually blue, he finds joy, ebullience and acceptance. . . . Hall’s compositions . . . convey a strong sense of emotion. Red captures [his feelings] . . . in an exuberant, far-reaching sky. Smartly designed and appealing, Red’s story offers much for discussion and affirmation.” (Kirkus Reviews)^“Crayon Red may be labeled red, but he colors blue. . . . Once he lets go of his label and proclaims, “I’m blue!” everything turns around . . . Smart design, bold colors, and sharp details keep the story both effective and amusing.” (Horn Book Magazine)^“Red is a crayon, and children will see his problem right away: his label reads ‘red,’ but he’s blue. . . . The overly cheerful encouragement Red endures will sound familiar to any child who’s struggled to perform. . . . Unexpectedly affecting.” (Publishers Weekly)^“Funny and poignant . . . Hall’s latest picture book is all about staying true to oneself, no matter what others say. . . . Witty and heartwarming [and] sure to become a favorite for children and adults alike.” (School Library Journal)^“Funny and clever, with a wonderful message about embracing who we are.” (Huffington Post)^“This story of mistaken identity has a simple yet profound premise that makes it feel fresh.” (USA Today)^“[A] smart, insightful coming-of-age story for [the] youngest readers.” (Shelf Awareness)

From the Back Cover

This is a story about a crayon I know.

I wrote it for you.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Since Michael Hall — the New York Times bestselling author/illustrator of eleven picture books including Red: A Crayon’s Story, My Heart Is Like a Zoo, and Perfect Square — believes that writing about himself in the third person could trigger an existential crisis, he has nothing more to say.
