Joan Hunt, September 21, 2011 (view all comments by Joan Hunt)
Draw up a chair and experience the reality created, sometimes consciously and sometimes not, by Harold using his purple crayon. Harold can intentionally depict what he needs or wants, but he can also accidently sketch a scary world. His ability to transform the troublesome into the tranquil is both inspiring (and, inspired) and remarkably satisfying.

A wonderful and unique story that every child will love and remember for years to come. A true classic that doesn't need many words to show introduce children to reading and a love for books.

"Staff Pick" by ,

A wonderful first book for your baby, this wordless picture book is about a little boy with a purple crayon, and as he draws across the page the illustrations come to life. When I "read" this book to my babies, I saw their eyes following the purple line. It's still my favorite and occupies a prized place in my collection.

"Synopsis" by , Essential Picture Book Classics—timeless stories for every child to treasure.

"One night, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight."

Armed only with an oversized purple crayon, young Harold draws himself a landscape full of wonder and excitement.

Full of funny twists and surprises, this joyful story shows just how far your imagination can take you. Harold and the Purple Crayon has delighted readers of all ages for over fifty years.

"Synopsis" by , First published in 1955, this classic tells the story of young Harold, whose purple crayon and his imagination take him on wonderful adventures. Full color.
