The Day The Crayons Quit by Oliver Jeffers (HarperCollins, £12.99)

A knowing comment of the nature of industrial action and the inherent elitism of our economy, drawing astute parallels between overworked crayons and the UK’s manual workforce.

Or, perhaps, another genius Oliver Jeffers story, told through correspondence between a boy and his crayons with beautifully lifelike illustrations and laugh-out-loud humour throughout. It’s up to you what you do with this witty, wonderful book – read it, read into it, laugh, cry – either way, we guarantee you’ll love it.
