"One night, after thinking it more than for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk inside the moonlight. He takes the essential purple-crayon precautions: drawing landmarks to ensure he won't get lost; sketching a boat when he finds himself in deep water; and producing a purple pie picnic when he feels the first pangs of hunger. Armed only with an oversized purple crayon, young Harold draws himself a landscape complete of beauty and excitement. But this is no hare-brained, impulsive flight of fantasy. Cherubic, round-headed Harold conducts his adventure with the utmost prudence, letting his imagination run free, but keeping his wits about him all the while."So begins this gentle story that shows just how far your imagination can take you.
Crockett Johnson's understated tribute for the imagination was first published in 1955, and has been inspiring readers of all ages ever since. Harold's quiet but magical journey reminds us using the marvels the mind can create, and also provides us the wondrous sense that anything is feasible. (Ages 4 to 8)
