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