Summary
Harold goes for an adventurous walk in the moonlight with his purple crayon.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

From beloved children’s book creator Crockett Johnson comes the timeless classic Harold and the Purple Crayon!

One evening Harold decides to go for a walk in the moonlight. Armed only with an oversize purple crayon, young Harold draws himself a landscape full of wonder and excitement.

Harold and his trusty crayon travel through woods and across seas and past dragons before returning to bed, safe and sound. Full of funny twists and surprises, this charming story shows just how far your imagination can take you.

“A satisfying artistic triumph.” —Chris Van Allsburg, author-illustrator of The Polar Express
