It will be interesting to see what Sony Pictures does with The Day the Crayons Quit (Philomel Books), a children’s picture book that has spent 200 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list. From Deadline Hollywood:
The book follows a box of crayons whose inhabitants go on strike against their young owner after growing sick of how they’re being used, as their individual colors dictate very limited day-to-day existences for each crayon. There is franchise potential as a sequel, The Day The Crayons Came Home, has sold more than 3 million copies and stayed on the New York Times bestseller lists for more than 200 weeks.
