Where in the World are The 16 Crayons???
Did you know that The 16 Crayons travel around the world with
their friends, the coloring books, to color pictures of
everyone, every place and every thing they see?
Hey! Here we are, The 16 Crayons, with our latest report:
We've just finished writing our debut screenplay with Celeste!
Guess what? It's a musical!
It features colorful songs about us, The Sixteen Crayons and yeah, well, those crazy coloring books
get to sing too!
We hope that our story, The Quest of the Sixteen Crayons is presented in theaters around the world someday!
Maybe, we'll even light up Broadway!
