It’s raining, and all of Yogurt the Ogre’s friends are busy. In frustration, Yogurt decides to draw with his crayons, but paper is much too small for his artwork. When he chooses a much larger surface, he’s surprised to find out that his parents don’t approve of his choice.

Yogurt learns how difficult it is to remove crayon when he’s told he needs to clean up his drawings. He is determined to keep at it until all traces of crayon marks are gone. And when he’s finished, his parents rewards him for his diligent efforts.

Kids usually learn the hard way that crayons belong only on paper, and they’ll easily relate to this amusing tale of Yogurt’s messy mistake. They’ll also learn that being responsible for their actions can mean some nasty clean-up, but the end result is worth it. Yogurt the Ogre: The Colorful Tale of the Creative Crayon provides a light-hearted reminder for kids to think before they act. Messes they don’t make are a lot easier to clean up!
