Red: A Crayon’s Story

We rated this book:


The crayon’s label says “Red,” but he is blue. A pencil tells the story. When Red draws a strawberry, it looks like a blueberry. He tries to draw an orange with Yellow. (I think it’s going to be green. I was right.) It looks like a green grape with a little blue and yellow on it. Red’s self-portrait is blue. Everyone says, “Oh, dear me.” The other crayons are not very nice. They say mean things about Red. Sunshine and Sea Green are nicer. Tape, scissors, and the pencil try to loosen Red’s label and sharpen him. (I don’t think that will help.) Blue cherries look yummy. Blue foxes are cute. Red’s new friend, Berry, asks him to make a blue ocean. Red says, “I can’t. I’m red.” Then he tries. Red makes the blue ocean. Then he feels happy. He finds out he’s blue! Then he draws a lot. Read the book to find out what he draws. I like the living things he draws—especially the blue whale. I can read this book by myself easily. I like It’s an Orange Aardvark! better.
