Crayon: Simon Rickerty giveaway

crayon_simon_rickertyA new, fun, wacky story about sharing from the author and illustrator of Monkey Nut, which won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013.

 
The two characters in this bright, bold story love colouring… as long as they stick to their own side of the paper! One colours in with a blue crayon, one with red. But soon enough, the colours get muddled and a squabble ensues - until they discover a whole rainbow of colours and discover the delights of working together to create a whole new picture.
 
This colourful book will leave your little ones wanting to create masterpieces, and teaches children about sharing in a fun way.
