about this item

Although the text is very matter of fact, this story about a young boy named Harold is full of imagination and adventure. One night, Harold decides to go for a moonlit walk, and so, using his seemingly magical purple crayon, he draws himself a moon and a path, and sets off on his adventure. As he walks on, Harold draws himself such things as a very small forest, a fierce dragon, a sailboat, and even a picnic meal consisting solely of his nine favorite types of pie. Eventually, Harold gets lost, but by using the moon as his guide, he manages to find his way safely back home. In the simple illustrations, Harold is depicted in shades of brown and white while his drawings are, of course, shown in purple. First published in 1955, HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON is a classic homage to the powers of imagination and art. The character of Harold appears in several other picture books including HAROLD'S FAIRY TALE and A PICTURE FOR HAROLD'S ROOM.

    I bought this book for mailing to a niece; it was available at the Target in my area and I was able to pick it up the next day. This service from Target is the reason I often order online from Target. Unfortunately, the copy they reserved for me was the only store copy available, and it had signific...  see moreof Susan's review
