Today’s book is called “My Crayons.” (Boku No Kureyon)
The title will tell you a few things:
Boku means “I” but it is reserved for males. So we know the owner is a male. (My husband says it is possible for a female to use “Boku” but I think it would sound very masculine and rough. I personally use it around the house just jokingly, especially when I am speaking for somebody else, like my son. However, I would never use it in polite company.)
Kureyon is a loanword from English (crayon). However, plurals are not often used in Japanese, so I have to use my own judgement when translating. Based on the illustrations, I chose the plural form in the title.
Who is the owner of these crayons? An elephant! He draws his way through the book, and the other animals are a tad bit jealous.
Too bad for them! When you’re the baddest beast in the book, the crayons are yours, and yours alone!
