Harold and the purple crayon.
There are no copies available
Harold goes for an adventurous walk in the moonlight with his purple crayon.
Harold sets such a good example! Using only a purple crayon and his imagination he enterains himself by creating wonderful adventures.
Harold and the Purple Crayon is deservedly a classic and one that reads as well today as I imagine it did 60 years ago. The simple illustrations, sweet story and the emphasis on Harold's ability to keep "his wits about him" and draw his way out of any danger he creates makes this a story you'll really enjoy sharing with a child. Harold's adventures may take him to many different places but in the end he's never as far away from home as he thinks he is.
This was one of my favorite books as a child.
Harold goes on adventures with his purple crayon. He can use his imagination to draw anything he wants. It is a wonderful book.
A classic book full of adventure and imagination.
This book is a classic and a wonderful example of how children can and should use their imaginations!
