Crayola did it again! Another ancient Egypt themed product (from 2013). “Tomb tones for artists wrapped up in their work.” Ha ha. Let’s get the coloring books out.

“Hi, everybody! Did you know camels can go for 3 or 4 days without drinking water?!”

“A thirsty camel can drink 30 gallons in ten minutes!”
No way! Am I glad I picked up this edition of your comic book series.
