Product Description:

“[A] fresh approach to colours and feelings. . . . Readers will share all the emotional elements of the tale—humour, despair, sadness, frustration, and finally, excitement.” (Booklist (starred review))

“When a red-labelled 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 labelled red, but he colours blue. . . . Once he lets go of his label and proclaims, “I’m blue!” everything turns around . . . Smart design, bold colours, 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 favourite for children and adults alike.” (School Library Journal)

“[A] smart, insightful coming-of-age story for [the] youngest readers.” (Shelf Awareness)

“This story of mistaken identity has a simple yet profound premise that makes it feel fresh.” (USA Today)

About the Author

Michael Hall grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where autumn was memorable for football, floats, caramel apples, and spectacular colors. He is the creator of several acclaimed picture books for children, including Frankencrayon, Red: A Crayon's Story, My Heart Is Like a Zoo, Perfect Square, and It's an Orange Aardvark! Michael Hall now lives with his family in Minneapolis, Minnesota-another city that shimmers in the fall.
