Since we started carrying Drew Daywalt's The Day The Crayons Quit, we've been scrambling to keep it in stock. Something about these crayons - some stuck in thier roles, some overworked, others underused, and all of them fed up - strickes a chord with everyone who picks it up.
n this hilarious novel, written in the voice of eighth-grader Wyatt Palmer, Dave Barry takes us on a class trip to Washington, DC. Wyatt, his best friend, Matt, and a few kids from Culver Middle School find themselves in a heap of trouble-not just with their teachers, who have long lost patience with them-but from several mysterious men they first meet on their flight to the nation's capital. In a fast-paced adventure with the monuments as a backdrop, the kids try to stay out of danger and out of the doghouse while trying to save the president from attack-or maybe not.
